A steep walk will take you to the top for some great views of the city, very quiet place a bit off the regular tourist trail many day trippers will give it a miss as it takes about 45 minutes to get to the top

This walk might be steep in the beginning but is absolutely worth it. You get wonderful views back over the city of Salzburg. Even my children (8 and 10) loved it. We went all over the mountain and went down on the other side. Lovely!

The location is so close to the city centre and yet elevated from the ground to offer a stunning view of the city. Magnificent view of the nearby scenery.

We ascended the Imbergstiege stairway from Steingasse for a wonderful walk around the greenery. On the way we visited the lovely little church St. Johannes am Imberg. Undoubtedly another highlight was the magnificent Capuchin Monastery. Terrific panoramic vistas over the river and city are to...More

It pretty much depends on your body. It took me around half an hour with frequent rests. I haven't done any significant climb in a while and I was tending a back and knee that could act up any time, so I didn't want to force... More
