Untersberg, Salzburg

4.7
#1 of 217 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.

  • Mount Untersberg dominates from above Salzburg and is able to sail with the view up to a few hundred kilometers on sunny days; you get to the top by cable car (including for those who buy the SAlzbugCard) and then you can leave for a few walks at altitude. Absolutely to do to enjoy a nice cool view.

  • Well worth the fee to travel up the gondola to the top of this mountain. The views are out of this world. I just sat and looked and looked at the mountains and breathed in the clear air.  more »
