Panoramic Spots

Festung Hohensalzburg / Fortress of Hohensalzburg

Very few cities can offer stunning panoramic views as Salzburg does. You just can open the window of your hotel’s room, sit down at a table in a coffee or walk up to the top of a hill in order to see the wonderful view of old buildings and baroque doms in the centre dominated by the Fortress of Hohensalzburg.
You may also admire the city from a lookout. There are some in the neighbourhood (for example from the Untersberg mountain reachable by cableway and from the Sanctuary of Maria Plain) and in the city of Salzburg itself.

It can be reached by cable car from Festungsgasse or walking. Chargeable entrance from 9.00 am to 6.00 pm and during summer from 9.00 am to 7.00 pm. You can start having a view over the city roofs reaching the fortress by cable car. The fortress and expecially the rectangular tower (Rechteckturm) where guided visits start offer a panorama of the whole city and of its surroundings.

Mönchsberg mountain (take the lift from Gstättengasse / A.-Neumayr-Platz)

The wonderful view you can enjoy from the coffee-restaurant Winkler persuaded many inhabitants of Salzburg, who were outraged when some years ago this modern building with large panoramic windows was built. Another splendid panoramic spot is the nearby Humboldterrasse which can easily be reached on foot. Glockenspiel (Carillon Tower perched on top of the Residenz Neubau. It can be reached at 10.45 am and at 5.45 pm / during winter only on workdays). Despite its modest height, this centrally located lookout offers a pleasant view.
