    A Few Tips About Untersberg
    Taking bus #25 by the Salzburg train station, we overheard a woman talking about a cable car and a mountain. Our intentions were to go the Palace of Hellbrunn. We missed the Hellbrunn stop and decided to take the bus further for the cable car which is the last stop for bus #25. There is an actual center where you can buy a ticket or show your Salzburg card. A cable car takes you up the 6473-foot (1973 meters) mountain of Untersberg. It is the highest peak in the region. The cable car was first constructed back in 1961. The mountain was actually seen in the move, The Sound of Music. The 28 Euro ride is nearly fully paid for by the 30 Euro daily Salzburg Card—which includes the bus ride. 50 people—and there is a number counter—is squeezed in the cable car. My wife was, unfortunately, stepped on and developed a severe contusion on a right foot. Our memories of this mountain are mixed. On a nice day, the views are majestic. One can actually see the castle in Salzburg. We did notice there are a number of trails. From the constructed center, the trail goes up for more views. We did not make it that far due to the event that happen to my wife. Luckily, the ride down was less dramatic as there was less than 10 people in the car.

    Wow
    the views were amazing! Cable car was sensational, only takes 8 minutes but it feels like you are climbing forever. At the top it is a short walk to a sensational viewpoint with lots of information about the surrounding hills.

    Captivating Experience
    A must do if you are in Salzburg. We had the Salzburg card. Cable car and bus rides alone pays off the SB card cost. Bus 25 and 5 both go to the Untersberg. Bus 25 takes scenic route and also stops at Hellbrunn palace and the zoo. The cable car ride was smooth and thrilling. It offers stunning views. It was a beautiful clear day, windy at the top. At the top incredible views in all directions. The small hike takes you to further up for more far reaching views. There are informative plaques. There are more trails to explore the mountain. Get the Salzburg card and enjoy this beautiful attraction and more.

    Fantastic views
    Fabulous views from the top of Untersberg... although quite slippy underfoot. We took advice of other reviewers and picked up no 5 bus ... last stop is the cable car station. The cable car is packed but very smooth. A must if you are in Salzburg. Cable cars go every 30 minutes .. on the hour and half hour.

We took number 5 bus from Mozartsteg to the Untersberg cable car station. The journey was very pleasant. We had the Salzburg cards which included the bus and cable car rides. The 8 and a half minute cable car reached to the height of 1,776 metres. The view was stunning. We walked along the small trail, passed the cross and reached to the top with lookout. We overlooked the Berchtesgaden and snow capped mountains of Germany. The walk stimulated our appetite. We went to Hochalm chalet and enjoyed the Austrian platter of meat and cheese washed down by a Steigle beer before our thrilling decent on the cable car. Highly recommended.

Don’t miss the experience and attractions! It’s the longest cable car ride I’ve been on, and the view of the Austrian Alps is spectacular. It takes about 8 minutes to reach the summit. Watch out for the Hohensalzburg Fortress 🙂. Cable ride operations though are subject to weather conditions. We had to return a second time, but it was really worth it.

Far too many people all crammed into the car, ruins the experience being squashed in so badly. Can't see out at all unless you're one of lucky few next to the window. Once you get to the top its stunning.
