This is not an adventure to attempt for anyone with physical limitations. The climb to get up the hill is a bit steep and if you continue on to do the trails, you'll encounter lots of steps and inclines. However, if you want a nice...More

If you're keen on a walk up a hill to see various views of Salzburg and the fortress at various times, then this is the hill for you. This is not a stroll for those weak of heart or spirit, but if, like me, you're...More

After slowly huffing and puffing up the steep cobblestone steps, we were glad to see the church and monastery but most of all the amazing view of the city. Nice paths through the woods also

We enjoyed this hike - a beautiful quiet place in the middle of the city! Near the top you get great views of the Fortress through the trees.

From the old town, you can enter the path to the church or monastery that gradually winds up; it's cobblestoned and steep. From there, trails take you into wooded areas and high up atop the hill from where you get some amazing views of the...More

A hike up the Kapuzinerberg will reward you with great views of the city. From new town you can reach the monastery in about 15-20 minutes. From the front of the monastery you can get fantastic views overlooking the Salzach, old town, with the fortress...More

A great place to get different views of the city. I went as far as the monastery, a nice little climb. I wouldn't recommend it for a wheelchair, steep with cobblestones.

On this, my fourth visit to Salzburg, we hiked up onto Kapuzinerberg, and we were glad we did. It was a nice, peaceful hike with overall modest terrain. What I liked best was a new perspective of Salzburg old town. Several spots on the trail...More

Hiking Kapuzinerberg provides a beautiful view of Salzburg and perhaps the best view of the fortress. However, sections of the trail are unpaved and it can get a bit slippery. I had two sections that were blocked by downed trees. I still loved the hike,...More
