About Festungsbahn, Salzburg

Below the north side of Salzburg fortress lies the old town, and this funicular railway is everyone’s preferred way of going from one to the other. Opened in 1892, this is the oldest funicular in the country, and has always been hugely popular. Taking one minute to rise 99 meters, and going a length of 191 meters, the funicular serves up some of the more unusual angles from which to photograph Salzburg. Visitors can sometimes be confused by the high prices quoted for the ride, but those also include the admission fees to the fortress itself.

  • An interesting way of travelling between the centre of Linz and Pöstlingberg. There are some very steep gradients and attractive views. The departure point for this tram is opposite Linz tourist information centre, and the tram route is number 50.

  • In my opinion there’s no need to take the funicular at all because by walking up to it u can enjoy more nice view. And it’s not far at all ( not suitable for small kids and elders). A must visit when u are in Salzburg.

  • Best views of the city amazing little gem super worth the visit.

  • Must-do when in Saltzberg. Funnucular railway from town up to the old fort. It's about a 60 second ride that saves a steep climb.
