Future POIs - Untersberg [Salzburg, Austria]

Untersberg is a part of the Berchtesgaden Alps, which is between the borders of Germany and Austria, that is less than 16km away from Salzburg which provides you with a great view of the surrounding areas since you will be 1,776 m (5,827 ft) above sea level.

The location is actually very easy to get to from Salzberg since there is a city bus (bus 25) that takes you there.

There are several trails that lead you to the top or if you like, there is a cable car which was open to the public in 1961 that takes you up over 1,320 m (4,300 ft) in 8.5 minutes (costs 22 euros to go up and down or varying costs going and down depending on the season).

Be sure to come back next Monday for another Future POI.
