Take the bus no. 25, 20 mins from the Salzburg HBF, easy to reach. The traffic including the Cable Car Untersberg (25 Euro) is bundled when using the Salzburg Card.

Really worthy of paying the cable car, but you should be careful about the weather as it can be suspended abruptly due to strong wind or rain.
