You can walk through the woods to the restaurant at the top and enjoy views looking to the West, but make sure the weather is good enough to justify the energy expended in the climb. You can get a decent view looking westwards at the...More

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!

Walk up the steep and rickety steps, to the very top, which offers panoramic views of the city and alpine scenery. I took the longer walk around, and found a cafe at the top, which sold beer and soft drinks, in a cosy seating area....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
