Enjoying one of Salzburg's most famous scenic spots, the dramatic museum of modern and contemporary art reposes atop the sheer cliff face of the Mönchsberg. The setting was immortalized in The Sound of Music—this is where Julie and the kids start warbling "Doe, a deer, a female deer..." Clad in minimalist white marble, the museum (2004) was designed by Friedrich Hoff Zwink of Munich. It has three exhibition levels, which bracket a restaurant with a large terrace—now,
as always, the place to enjoy the most spectacular view over the city while sipping a coffee. Collection highlights include graphics and paintings by Austrian and international artists, including Oskar Kokoschka and Erwin Wurm, with a focus on large-scale installations and sculptural works. Visit in the evening to see the city illuminated.
