Why Visit the Museum Der Moderne?

Contempary Art in a Modern Setting and What a View!

The area outside the Museum Der Moderne is known locally as the Winkler Terrace. This is because the Cafe Winkler previously stood on the site.

It is the sister museum to the Rupertinum in the old town. Whereas the Rupertinim showcases new artistic concepts, the Museum Der Moderne displays modern art in a contemporary setting.

It is one of the best places to see the Old Town of Salzburg from the Kapunzinerberg to the Fortress. The twin towers belong the Cathedral and the red dome to the left of the Fortress is Nonnberg Abbey.

It is easily reached by using the Mönchsberg lift located on Anton-Neumayr-Platz directly underneath the museum on the hill. In just 30 seconds it takes you directly to the terrace.

From here there are lovely walks along the Monschberg (the hill overlooking the Old Town) to the Fortress. If you don’t want to go that far then there are a number of ways back down into the town.
