Museum der Moderne

A prominent location for modern art

An international architecture competition was held in 1998 for the construction of a new museum on the Mönchsberg. An eleven-person jury led by Swiss architect Luigi Snozzi chose the project submitted by Munich-based architecture team Friedrich Hoff Zwink out of 145 entries. They were especially impressed with the design’s sensitive approach to the nearby 19th century water tower. The building’s glass stairwells free up views of the historic building.


Four Levels

For modern art in Salzburg

The museum took three and a half years to build, and now offers four floors of space that can adapt to suit a range of different exhibition formats. Set in an exposed position on the Mönchsberg, over the rooftops of the Old Town, the building designed by Friedrich, Hoff and Zwink – and the additional building opened in 2004 – present contemporary and modern art in one of the most beautiful parts of Salzburg. The purist building offers around 2,300 square metres of space ideal for displaying art from the 20th and 21st centuries. Across three levels, international art and the museum’s own collection take turns to dominate the space.
