The best part of our Salzburg tour. You can't miss it. Take a public bus to the cable car station in Untersberg (around an hour ride or so), get into the cable car (unless you are an enthusiastic hiker), enjoy the nice city view from...More

We took the cable car up and back on a sunny day in October 2017. Fantastic views of Salzburg and the surrounding area, although I think you'd be disappointed on a cloudy or foggy day. It was a lot colder up the top and there...More

We did not know about the cable car until we heard it announced as a stop on the bus back from Berchesgarten, so stopped on a whim. The entrance to the cable car is right by the bus stop. In winter, the cars go up...More

If you get the chance to go out to the mountain and ride up to the top, you will be well rewarded with a spectacular view and unique experience!

Winter or summer, the Untersberg is a must if you visit Salzburg. A spectacular cable car takes you up the side of the mountain to near the top. Then a wide (but un-edged and with massive shear drop) steepish path takes you to the top...More

The mountain top was covered with snow. When we went in the morning, it was not too crowded, nor windy at the top. The cafe onsite was reasonable, and a welcome break after the walk outside.

The cable car ride was one of the scariest I have been on. It was a very steep, 10-minute ride to the top. Once at the top, the views were spectacular! It was a little scary...when you begin walking towards the summit, there is no...More

Rather than asking fellow travelers, I strongly suggest you contact the cable car operator, either directly at the phone number provided or through your hotel receptionist.
