Austria has always been at the forefront of architectural innovation -- but Hangar-7 is jaw-dropping on another level, and defies categorization: a masterpiece of avant-garde design, a beacon for contemporary art, a culinary temple with a revolving chef residency and, yes, sprawling home to a fleet of glorious old aircraft – the fleet of the Flying Bulls. Hangar-7 has become a landmark destination for airplane lovers, art scene devotees, gourmets and architecture aficionados all at once.
Despite 1,200 tons of steel and 380 tons of special glass, the building radiates weightlessness and dynamism, themes that recur in the cutting-edge art exhibitions and inventive gourmet restaurant – the Restaurant Ikarus. In addition you can see the original wings with which Felix Baumgartner, the sky-jumper, has crossed the channel between Dover and Calais. Come experience this breathtaking creation, conveniently located at the Salzburg Airport, just outside the city.
