Untersberg, Salzburg

(1,300+ reviews on the web)
Mountain
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. Arrange your visit to Untersberg and discover more family-friendly attractions in Salzburg using our Salzburg trip itinerary builder.

  • The Untersberg is fascinating from the hiking trails and views. You can climb there, or you can find something for tourists (with the mountain railway). So, it's a destination for all.
