Museum of Modern Art - Salzburg

Salzburg's dramatic museum of modern and contemporary art, the Museum der Moderne, sits atop the sheer cliff face of the Mönchsberg, 60 meters above Salzburg’s historic old town.
With the opening of the Museum der Moderne (Museum of Modern Art) in 2004, Salzburg now has an extraordinary place for presenting contemporary art. Thanks to its spectacular location on one of the world's most beautiful spots, the museum on the Mönchsberg - designed by architects Friedrich Hoff Zwink from Munich - represents a sensitive dovetailing of the natural / urban landscape.

Together with the original Rupertinum building at the centre of the Old Town, the two Museum of Modern Art buildings provide around 3,000 square metres of exhibition space for thematic exhibitions of 20th and 21st century art, as well as for presentations from the permanent collection and the Austrian Gallery of Photography.
