"I can offer you nothing but blood, toil, sweat and tears," Churchill said to the English people during WWII. Well, I can't promise you exactly the same, but i dare you to come discover Kapuzinerberg all the way up to 630ft the highest point to Franziskschlössl. It is quite a walk. Well worth climbing the hill and steps. Kapuzinerberg is home to churches, an abbey, along with meandering hiking paths, and even chamois! There are fabulous views from various points, you'll get great views over Salzburg, admire the old town, the fortress and the surrounding mountains. The East bank of the Salzach River can also be seen from Kapuzinerberg along the wall on the hill erected during the Thirty Years War with many small towers along it. Some levels take you up to just past the rooftops so you get a bird's eye view just above roof level for Really nice photo opportunity. On the way, you will pass a statue erected to the memory of Mozart, thirteen Stations of the Cross, a Capuchin church, and fortifications. So do it. Come on. You'll feel good afterwards :-)
Hi, my name is Irene, As a host on Airbnb,(www.airbnb.com/r/irenes170) with homes in Uganda, I enjoy travelling, seeing different places and meeting different people with Diverse Backgrounds. Though I have travelled the world, I love the outdoors and I'm never happier than when I go wondering free across enchanting landscapes and spectacular hills. Salzburg is a beautiful and fascinating town, with beautiful landscapes of mountains, a variety of different interesting things to see and do.
We will be on Kapuzinerberg- the hill that can be seen on the east bank of the Salzach River and yet in the center of Salzburg.
Wear comfortable shoes and travel light. And make sure you're physically up for it, before taking this casual hike. Unless you're active and fit, you might get winded and your knees might wobble a bit. P.S. Alternative experience " Walking Sightseeing on Mönchberg".
