The Museum der Moderne Salzburg is a cosmopolitan, service-oriented, family-friendly museum that addresses all ages and all groups in society. The Museum is constantly and systematically working to improve barrier-free access to all its offerings, both analogue and digital. These include construction measures and the further development of our signposting system, also taking into account the needs of people with visual impairments.

Accessibility of the two Museum sites, Mönchsberg and Rupertinum, for people with impaired mobility


People with impaired mobility can access the Museum building on the Mönchsberg by taking the MönchsbergAufzug Lift from the old town. Once inside the Museum, there are elevators to all the exhibition levels and to the café/bar/restaurant m32. During the opening hours of the restaurant, those using wheelchairs or walking aids have direct access to the restaurant from the Museum (and vice versa).

Wheelchair-accessible restrooms are available in both the Museum and the restaurant. Near the top station of the Mönchsberg Elevator, there is an additional public restroom for people with disabilities that is accessible by stair lift. It is located outside the vestibule on the left (facing down the hill), next to the Panorama Terrace. The lower level of the Terrace can be reached by the same route.

When coming from the Mönchsberg or from the road behind the Museum building, those in a wheelchair or using a walking aid can only access the Museum and the restaurant without assistance during restaurant opening hours. Those with impaired mobility can access the restaurant via the Sculpture Terrace (where the work Camel by Not Vital currently stands). From the forecourt on the other side of the building (where Not Vital’s Schlafendes Haus is located, a ramp leads along the Panorama Terrace to the Sculpture Terrace.


Since its reopening after renovation work on the ground floor and in the entrance area, the Rupertinum building of the Museum is accessible to those with impaired mobility via a ramp in the courtyard (at the entrance at Wiener-Philharmoniker-Gasse 9). In the Museum itself, there are elevators to all exhibition levels.

Wheelchair-accessible restrooms are available in both the Museum and the café.

Access to the Museum café 220GRAD RUPERTINUM is barrier-free; similarly, there is barrier-free access for those moving between the café and the Museum. The Museum is accessible by stair lift, both via the courtyard and inside the building.
