Untersberg, Salzburg

4.8
#1 of 187 in Nature in Austria
Straddling the border between Germany and Austria, the summit of Untersberg offers spectacular views of Salzburg far below. The tabletop mountain has six different peaks with elevations ranging from 1,805 m (5,922 ft) to 1,973 m (6,473 ft). Take the cable car to 1,320 m (4,331 ft), or hike the well-marked trails to summit the mountain. Protected as a nature preserve, the mountain provides opportunities for outdoors activities, such as climbing and hiking. Follow the Nature-Quiz-Path to learn more about wildlife, mushrooms, minerals, and trees. Visit the ice cave at 1,570 m (5,151 ft), but dress warmly, as temperatures are below zero year-round. A visit to Untersberg represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Salzburg online holiday planner to plot your vacation.

  • If you go to Salzburg then a visit to Unterberg in order to climb the mountain it is highly recommended. Once you go here I could not let myself make a comparison between Romanian mountains and here. ...  more »
  • We went to visit this spectacular place outside Salzburg but connected by bus 25 fine. The place up with the cable car is magical. recommend the Salzburg card xche do not pay would otherwise be 23 ' 50 € per p. ate and drank in the shelter of a great time. We did some walking x see the breathtaking spectacle

  • Bus 125 (verify) x 40 minutes, crossing the Grödig, green countryside in Salzburg, we reach the last stop right at the base of the cable car. You will rise rapidly with a cab suspended on exciting cliffs. Down on the top you will have opportunity to explore, too long. If you enjoy Sun and scenery you'll find a couple of restaurants that serve beer, sausages and strudel.

Where to stay in Salzburg

There’s no better area to stay in the city where Mozart was born than the historical city center, a World Heritage Site. Salzburg's hub offers comfortable accommodations nestled between a rich array of sights. The Salzach River cuts directly through town, dividing the city into east and west. Look for accommodations in the Altstadt, tucked in between the river and the city’s mountain, Monchsberg. For budget-minded travelers, try a centrally located youth hostel or small hotel. If price isn’t an issue, splurge on Austrian luxury in an upscale hotel.
