The Rainer Regiment museum

A museum with tradition

Hohensalzburg Castle has been home to the Rainer museum since 1924, to preserve the memory of the former Salzburg house regiment, the imperial and royal infantry regiment ‘Archduke Rainer’ no. 59. Its history dates back to the year 1682. When the Duchy of Salzburg finally came under Austrian rule in 1816, the Innviertel and the Hausruckviertel in Upper Austria were assigned to the regiment as recruitment districts.
