We enjoyed a wonderful February day at the top of the Untersberg, having used our Salzburg card to gain us a free pass on the spectacular cable car (think Where Eagles Dare). We were all wrapped up for below freezing temperatures and strong winds, so it was lovely to be at the top of the mountain in bright, warm sunshine.... More

We took the Untersberg cable car on 15th Feb. We had come prepared for cold, wintry conditions up in the mountains but could hardly have been more wrong. Within 15 minutes of walking we were stripped down to t-shirts and deeply regretting not having brought sunglasses and sunblock. The weather was perfect - cloudless and still. We had taken the...

We had the Salzburg card so used the bus from the centre which took about 30mins, the card also covered the cable car ride. Once at the top amazing views of the local area and back down over the city. Make sure you are wearing good shoes with grip and the slopes are quite steep. You can walk quite a... More

From the top you can enjoy an amazing view of Salzburg and the surrounding areas. Like being on helicopter. Only make sure there are no clouds or fog.

We took the cable car up to untersberg. We had got bus number 25 from Mozart platz. Visibility was poor but we enjoyed playing in the snow at the top. There are no barriers so beware of the edge with children. Its good value to get the Salzburg card as this pretty much pays for it and the bus is... More

Stunning trip on the cable car. The land around Salzburg itself is generally quite flat, so when you take the bus ride out of the city towards the mountains it's a very impressive view to see them rising up so steeply and suddenly. We got out there in time for the 1st or 2nd trip of the day and being... More

We stumbled across Untersberg as we heard someone mention it in our hostel and we were so glad we went. It was an awful cloudy day in Salzburg so we weren't sure what to expect, but once the cable car broke through the clouds we were stunned with how incredible the views were. Even though it was late December it... More

Well health and safety would have a field day if this was in the U.K.! Great ride up in the cable car through the clouds to the top. When you leave the station you go through the viewing platform (inside) to the side of the building. You can then walk up hill (compact and soft snow) to the inn in... More

Bus no 25 takes you up to mount unterberg and is the last stop of this bud. This is a once in lifetime experience going up by cable car and enjoying a drink or coffee on top. If u get the salzburger card for a day the trip is included and public transport too a day cost 29 euros

We were able to be dropped off at the cable car on the way back from the salt mines. I felt the cable car cost was quite pricey at around £23 each. Best to get a local card that covers local attractions. The cable car runs every half an hour. We were lucky and had beautiful blue sunny skies amongst... More
