Walk around Mönchsberg, Salzburg, Austria

The high ground north west of Salzburg's striking fortress is known as the Mönchsberg. Mostly given over to parks and woodland, the area is perfect for a 5-8 km hike from which you can survey the city, the river and the mountains in nearby Germany. Dotted with historic mansions, fortifications and elevated vantage points, the Mönchsberg attracts locals and tourists alike, but still feels peaceful in September.
