Although Austria's capital city Vienna is far more renowned for its art museums, that doesn't mean that there is nothing in Salzburg for the art lover.
The Rupertinum Museum of Modern Art was founded by Friedrich Welz who himself had a large collection of modern art. Together with his friend Oskar Kokoschka they put together a collection of art from the greatest Austria expressionists. In 1983 this collection was turned over to the public.
In 2004, the second half of the museum was opened on the Mönchsberg overlooking the city.
Sections of the museum include works with paper, sculptures and painting and photography and the media. There is also a restaurant on site as well as a shop and library.
Although split into two locations, these two collections are not far from each other, and can be reached by foot in just a few minutes. This attraction is free with the Salzburg Card.
