Untersberg, Salzburg
(4.7/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 原本想去十字架那裡看山下的風景,誰知天氣太冷,山上白濛濛,能見度只有前面20步左右,周圍什麼都看不到。一離開覽車站,天上一直飄雪。雪的質地粉末一樣很輕很細,一踏上雪地就沒膝,走得很辛苦,短短路程走了半小時才找到十字架。返回的時候還迷路了,滑下斜坡才發現原來不是沿路返回,而是走在一間木屋的屋頂上。幸好旁邊無其他人,不然糗大了! 雖然沒看到想看的風景,不過與另一半在茫茫大雪中屋頂漫步也是很特別的一次體...  more »
