Guests can reach the summit at 1,850 meters by riding the cable car located in the village of St. Leonhard. From atop the mountain, visitors can enjoy the indescribably beautiful panoramic view of the Salzburg Basin and the Berchtesgaden Region. On a very clear day, alpine lakes and Lake Königsee in Bavaria are also visible.
The summit of the Untersberg can also be reach by several hiking paths, including the Dopplersteig, the Reitsteig and a trail that passes by the ice caves. Hiking along the Untersberg plateau is especially beautiful. For those less-experience hikers, there are multiple trails along base of the mountain offering rest and relaxation. Maps are available at the local information center.
