Salzburg not only has a lot to offer as a city, but is also located in very scenic surroundings. The Untersberg on the border between Salzburg and Berchtesgaden offers a magnificent view over the vast country. The cable car goes up to the 1972 meter high mountain massif and can be used with the Salzburg Card.
