  • The view from the museum is amazing; a marvelous way to see the city. But, don't bother to go inside. I have visited many museums of modern art, but never have I seen such self-indulgent, utterly pret...  more »
  • It is nice place to see contemporary art on the top of the rock. From the terrace is marvelous view of the city.  more »
  • Perhaps when you visit there will be something of interest that does not require some psychedelic drug to understand it. There is a reason people in the late 60's created art like this. There is a gre...  more »

  • Oh modern art.... you have been sent to try our patience. An austere, functional building with a varying set if displays. You may get lucky, you may get angry.
  • Apparently this museum is known more for its view of the city than the art it houses. The view was pretty great, but honestly it was too far to get a good shot of detail. I think Kapuziner Kloster has a better view. The museum had so much art on display it became exhausting to look at. I went back to the viewing deck for one more glimpse of the city before leaving just because of how much the ticket costs.
  • Great location of the restaurant terrace - fabulous views over the city.
  • The first reception was unkind man, he made us unhappy. Never recommend to my friend. Nothing special at all.
  • Lovely view of Salzburg - very expensive for the lift unless you have a Salzburg card - god awful looking lump of concrete that contains horrendously art the inside is so appalling awful grey concrete lacking any beauty - quite the most dreadful place in a city of beauty- as prince Charles might say a carbuncle on the face of a favourite uncle" please please avoid this place... just a polite suggestion.
