Künstlerhaus in der Hellbrunner Straße | © Andrew Phelps


The Künstlerhaus next to the River Salzach is a center for modern art: It is the home of the Salzburger Kunstverein, of a gallery, of many institutions within its ateliers, while also offering a shop.

The Kunstverein

The Salzburger Kunstverein is one of the most acclaimed institutions for contemporary art in Austria. The society’s headquarters are at the Künstlerhaus, which the Kunstverein opened back in 1885. It now consists of two exhibition rooms, the Ringgalerie, over 20 artists’ studios along with a café. Since 2010, the building has been radiant in its unmistakable red, while in summertime the garden of the Künstlerhaus provides a venue for “Sunset Cinema”. All exhibitions at the Künstlerhaus may be visited free of charge!

Initiatives at the Künstlerhaus

The Künstlerhaus provides a home base for many important artistic collaborations. "ARTgenossen", which focuses on art education and communication, as well as artist group "gold extra" both use the spaces and networking opportunities provided by the Künstlerhaus. "oenm", the oesterreichische ensemble für neue musik, also “lives” here. For more than 35 years, oenm has been dedicated to the performance of contemporary music and has long since become an established representative of Austria on stages around the world.
