Fodor's Review

Just around the corner from the Pferdeschwemme horse-fountain, at Anton-Neumayr Platz, you'll find the Mönchsberg elevator, which carries you up through solid rock not only to the Museum der Moderne but also to wooded paths that are great for walking and gasping—there are spectacular vistas of Salzburg. In summer this can be a marvelous—and quick—way to escape the tiny crowded streets of the Old City.
