Untersberg & the Fortress Hohensalzburg

Moving from the Festung Hohensalzburg (Salzburg Fortress) northwards, one soon gets to the Mönchsberg and some stretches of forest and green areas. The Mönchsberg belongs to the most important recreational areas of Salzburg and is good for easy hiking throughout the year - even if you are old, disabled, busy carrying children or nagging girlfriends, the Mönchsberg will allow you to go at least for a little bit of walking. If you prefer to do it all mechanically, there is a lift that links the city centre from Anton-Neumayr-Platz with the look-out platform of the Museum der Moderne (Museum of Modern Art). This picture was taken not far from the museum, showing Mount Untersberg in the background and the little Rainberg hill in the foreground.
