The Residenz - Salzburg

The Residenz Palace was first built in around 1120, and for many years served as the palace for the Prince Archbishops of Salzburg, until the area was secularised and became part of Austria. Today it serves as an art gallery, and houses many spectacular pieces of art, with a particular focus on Dutch Baroque art, with many works by Rembrandt, Rubens and Brueghel. There is also a collection of 19th century Austrian paintings, by artists such as Ferdinand Georg Waldmüller, Hans Makart and Anton Romako. For those interested in the development of the city, there is a further collection of fascinating paintings and photographs of the city itself which chart the changes the city has undergone over the years. If that were not enough, there are often temporary exhibitions by local and international artists.
