The Salzburger Land is the land of museums

Whether in the city or province of Salzburg - a must for all museum lovers

Salzburg’s numerous and diverse museums offer a wide range of art galleries and exhibitions of well-known artists of the past and present. In addition, these museums provide valuable information about nature, technique and mankind.

Famous masterpieces of big artists are for instance exhibited in the Residenzgalerie, the Salzburgmuseum or in the Salzburg Barockmuseum. The Museum der Moderne and the Rupertinum, which goes with it, show contemporary art, seasonally changing exhibitions and art programs of modern artists.

Other special features can be admired in Salzburg’s many small museums. The unique marionette museum called “Welt der Marionetten”, the toy museum Salzburger Spielzeugmuseum or the Trachtenmuseum in the center of Salzburg’s downtown where traditional customs can be admired are particularly popular.

Afterwards you can get your culinary inspiration and information about Salzburg’s cuisine at Stiegl-Brauwelt!

The Salzburg countryside also offers many places that are worth being seen! For example the Puppenwelt in Obertrum, the Radiomuseum in Grödig or the unique Musikinstrumenten Museum in St. Gilgen!
