Museum der Moderne Mönchsberg

Museum der Moderne Mönchsberg (Mönchsberg 32, Salzburg, Austria) — located atop the Mönchsberg—or Monk’s Mountain—and accessed via an elevator at Gstättengasse in the old town, the Museum der Moderne Salzburg showcases an eclectic mix of visual arts housed in a modern glass-and-marble structure with incredible views of the historic quarter and fortress. Though works by more-recognizable names like Emil Nolde and John Cage have been exhibited here, equally fascinating are the creations by lesser-known artists.

Admission: €12 (adult), €8 (seniors & children), €16 (family). Hours: 10:00 am – 6:00 pm (Tuesday, Thursday-Sunday), 10:00 am – 8:00 pm (Wednesday). Also open on Mondays (10:00 am – 6:00 pm) during the festival season.
