A „pre-opening“ of the Rainer regimental museum took place on 8th March 2016, together with the official opening of the „Fürstenzimmer“ (rooms of the Prince Archbishops) within the so-called “Hoher Stock“ of the fortress. These rooms have undergone a beautiful partial renovation lately. By now most of the Rainer regimental museum is freely accessible to the public.
Address, Contact and Location Information:
Rainer Regiment Museum
To reach the Hohensalzburg Fortress, start at Kapitelplatz and walk up the Festungsgasse road. From there the visitor can take the funicular, which departs every 10 minutes. Climbing up on foot takes about 1/2 hour.
For those arriving by car, we suggest using the Park & Ride parking lots at the “Messezentrum” (Convention Center) or “Salzburg Süd” (South Salzburg), and then taking public transportation into the city center. If you want to drive into the city, it’s best to use public parking garages. The closest parking area is the “Altstadtgarage” (Old City garage) in the Mönchsberg (the mountain on which Hohensalzburg Fortress stands). There is additional parking in the Linzergasse and Mirabell parking garages across the Salzach river.
