Museums over the rooftops of the Old Town: Museum of modern art (Museum der Moderne) and the Castle Museum. You’ll notice the Museum of modern art on the Mönchsberg during your first stroll through the Old Town. It probably boasts the most spectacular location of all of Salzburg’s museums. Set on the Mönchsberg, the museum is opposite the unique Hohensalzburg Castle – the best preserved castle in Europe. Works by Max Beckmann, Picasso and Seurat have been shown here, under the motto “the peak of modernity”. The Museum der Modern’s 3,000 square metre exhibition space also includes the Baroque Stadtpalais Rupertinum Palace. Here, where priests once trained, you can now admire modern art.
The Festungsmuseum Castle Museum also boasts an incredible location: objects from the castle’s history are presented here in the historic rooms of Hohensalzburg Castle: you can see coins, weapons, ceramics and even a complete castle kitchen.
The House of Nature (Haus der Natur) is a museum for nature and technology. The Haus der Natur is the perfect place for families with children – there’s plenty to discover:
The House of Nature (Haus der Natur) is located just below the Museum of modern art. You only need to walk for around 15 minutes to get to the museum entrance from the Altstadthotel Kasererbräu.
