Connecting the Anton-Neumayr-Platz to the the Museum der Moderne on the Monchsberg, this lift was built in the 19th century. 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.

Nice place to enjoy good view in Salzburg. You can enjoy craft beer cocktails or Austrian wine with reasonable price at roof top restaurant.
Definitely worth taking the lift up to see the views of the city. Has some great trails to walk back down which also has some amazing views along the way and a few small cafes.
Takes you up to a fantastic view of the city and there is a neat little cafe at the top. Behind the cafe are hiking trails. Nice way to see the entire city at once and grab a drink.
Simple lift service up to a good view over Salzburg. It's free with the Salzburg card, and takes less than 30 minutes, so why not?
We were tired from other walking tours and the elevator price was well worth it. Fantastic panoramic view of Salzburg from the top from a nice shady area.
