Straddling the border between Germany and Austria, the summit of Untersberg offers spectacular views of Salzburg far below. The tabletop mountain has six different peaks with elevations ranging from 1,805 m (5,922 ft) to 1,973 m (6,473 ft). Take the cable car to 1,320 m (4,331 ft), or hike the well-marked trails to summit the mountain. Protected as a nature preserve, the mountain provides opportunities for outdoors activities, such as climbing and hiking. Follow the Nature-Quiz-Path to learn more about wildlife, mushrooms, minerals, and trees. Visit the ice cave at 1,570 m (5,151 ft), but dress warmly, as temperatures are below zero year-round. A visit to Untersberg represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Salzburg online holiday planner to plot your vacation.

I suggest you leave by taxi as it is on the outskirts of the city, it is not expensive and is more expeditious. We did the return by public transport with the Salzburg card, which is worth buying. When we came down there were a lot of people waiting to go up.
Not to miss the cable car experience, single point transition from Rocky mountains to all snow and was a involuntary wowwww from all in the cable car
