  • Salzburg erleben und entdecken - Hiking on the Untersberg Mountain

The Untersberg cable car in St. Leonhard near Grödig ascends to the Geiereck Station at 1,806 meters. (The cable car ride is included in the Salzburg-Card!). On a clear day, visitors have an unforgettable 360° view of the Rosittental valley as far as the Salzkammergut Lake District, as well as views of the Hohen Tauern, Tennen and Hagengebirge mountain ranges.

The highest point on the Austrian side of the mountain is the Salzburger Hochthron (1,853 meters). The Untersberg, with its many ancient legends and mysterious powers of rejuvenation, offers several interesting hiking routes, tours for climbers and guided visits through the ice caves.

Winter sport enthusiasts can ride the Untersberg cable car to its summit and enjoy ski tours of the plateau, snowshoe hiking and downhill skiing. After a 15-minute ride to the summit station, skiers can enjoy a 7.5-kilometer-long downhill trail that ends in Fürstenbrunn. From there, regularly scheduled buses (Number 35) bring you back to the valley cable car station.
