Zeughaus on the Hohensalzburg Fortress | ©

Altes Zeughaus

The historical Zeughaus has been restored to its original form and, in an interactive exhibition, it will show how the defensive fortifications of Hohensalzburg developed over time with the introduction of firearms.

Experience history – in an interactive museum

The new “Altes Zeughaus” documents the development of cannons, armaments and firearms, and the effects of such developments on the design of fortifications. With the help of interactive models, visitors to the exhibition can actually experiment with the various offensive and defensive tactics affecting medieval fortresses.


The interactive museum "Altes Zeughaus" is barrier-free accessible. More information you will find on the official website.
