Museum der Moderne

Gallery in Salzburg

Straddling Mönchsberg’s cliffs, this contemporary glass-and-marble oblong of a gallery stands in stark contrast to the fortress, and shows first-rate temporary exhibitions of 20th- and 21st-century art. The works of Alberto Giacometti, Dieter Roth, Emil Nolde and John Cage have previously been featured. There’s a free guided tour of the gallery at 6.30pm every Wednesday. The Mönchsberg Lift whizzes up to the gallery year-round.

While you’re up here, take in the far-reaching views across Salzburg over coffee or lunch at the gallery's M32 restaurant. The gallery appeals to families with its line-up of hands-on events and workshops for kids (see the website for details).
