Last minute choice to take this tour to the top of the mountain via the cable car. Worth the time. 3 hours round trip from City Center.

Untersberg can be reached by the 25 bus and then a cable car that promises breathtaking views, yet the top of the mountain is even more stunning. There is a cafe, restaurant and walkways, suitable for hiking or simply a walk to see the views....More

What spectacular views from the top of the Untersberg Mountain over Salzburg and many of the surrounding towns. We felt completely safe on the cable car going up the mountain. Our only regret was that the incredible mountains in the distance were not clearly visible...More

We took the #25 bus (8AM) from old town and it took about 30 minutes to get to Untersberg. Got on the Gondola and in about 10 minutes, we were at the top of the mountain which was about 5000+ feet above sea level. The...More

Gorgeous views from the cable car, gorgeous views where they drop you off, and gorgeous views from the peak of the mountain! It's a bit of a hike to get to the top, but well worth it. You can totally do it; I believe in...More

Hello! Good advice from other people! Get a Salzburg card because it covers the cost of the cable car plus the bus and other places you might want to visit. The easiest place to get on the bus is close to the tourist info... More

There is a car park at the cable car station and although I'm not an expert on accessibility, the Austrian buses are pretty good and certainly on a par with the UK (if not better). The issue I can see is this is an older... More
