At that time, it’s 60 metre height made it the highest lift in the world, which instantly also made it a tourist attraction. Thanks to the museum’s location on top of the hill, over 1.3 million people use the lift every year. The old lift was an exterior structure, but the one used today rises through a tunnel in the rock. It’s not a long ascent - only 60 metres still, lasting only 30 seconds. There’s not much else to do here.

Monchsberg Lift, Salzburg Reviews - Write a Review

  • Best view of Salzburg: city and fortress. The price is reasonable

  • A quick life ride up let's you see the whole of Salzburg from near the skies. Beautiful views

  • Great views and lift itself was modern and efficient. Unfortunately the rest of the construction is not child friendly and if you've got prams and kids you can't avoid lugging them up and down concrete stairs to get in and out.

  • Must see in Salzburg. You will get very nice view of the whole city, including the castle!

  • Easily accessible look-out point. The views are spectacular as you can see the Salzburg fortress from here. There is restaurant close by and if you dine there, you can get a free elevator ticket down.
