Untersberg, Salzburg

4.7
#1 of 227 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.

  • Like many are such queues, but this makes a big impression, the journey is high and quite as for a long rope. From the bottom a beautiful view of the mountains, and from the top impressive panorama.

  • By train up and experienced a wonderful day in the snow. Some condition and appropriate clothing/shoes required. Camera not forgotten and you should study the weather report, which costs the train journey 25 Euro/adults and in fog you don't really have anything of it.

  • A must go when visiting Salzburg. Excellent viewpoint of both Autria and Germany on clear days. But beware of the weather.
  • It is worth the time to visit this place if you happen to be in Salzburg. The views of the mountain from the cable car are amazing. One also gets to see Salzburg and the Alps in the direction of Berchtesgaden from the top of the mountain. There are options for hiking as well. The Salzburg day card covers the price of bus to Untersberg as well as the ride up and down the cable car.
