Location & Directions to the "World of Puppets" Museum on Fortress Hohensalzburg

The World of Marionettes Museum is located on Salzburg Fortress which you cannot miss! The majestic castle is perched above the city center and is visible from afar. Here you will find the shortest route to the museum attraction.


Salzburg Fortress - Salzburg's landmark – is located in the heart of Old City above and behind the cathedral. You can walk to reach the Fortress or take the funicular railway which takes you directly there. Once there, go left up the stairs of the bell tower, then left again and after 20m our unique museum is on the right side. Have fun!
