Museum of Modern Art

Contrary to popular belief there is so much more to Salzburg than Mozart and the Sound of Music. For instance the Museum Der Moderne is an absolute delight. This fantastic building by the wonderfully named Fried Rich Hoff Zwink is a triumph of design and functionality. Commanding a great location overlooking the city it contains an eclectic mix of art, photography and sculpture. Remember those Gustav Klimpt paintings you had as a student? well check out the originals! Smile and wonder at the enigmatic sculptures of Stephan Balkenhol. Finish off by dining al fresco at the super M32 restaurant. Top tips: utilise the museum locker facilities and go for a walk in the surrounding woodland or follow the linked path to the Hohensalzburg Fortress. Buy the art package ticket for 11 Euro this includes use of the lift, entry to the museum and a breakfast or lunch snack (see restaurant tips)

Pros and Cons

    Loved that museum too. Have been there in the week it opened. It was actually the best about Salzburg...and the walk around the hill back to the city. so I agree with you 100%.

    This lunch-culture combination sounds excellent! I´m sure I`ll try it out the next time when I´m in Salzburg! The view from Mönchsberg must be lovely- and lucky you could enjoy it entirely without the infamous Salzburg rain :)!
