This is a strange place, with no clear gospel presentation and no clear order for the visit. The dusty passages sometime lead to dead ends; one set of doors closes and you can’t return. Some biblical characters are portrayed with considerable licence (Lydia for example). There are a few quotes from the Koran as well. Overall yes it’s free with the Salzburg pass but we cannot recommend the visit, and we are Christians. We felt oppressed rather than uplifted.

The theme of Bibelwelt is interesting based on the description. We tried to follow the instruction to visit the different settings, but due to lack of maintenance, we tried not to climb up and down to experience those "excitements". It is quite dusty inside, and the design is also a bit scary..... my girls aged 12 and 17 suggest that this place may be good for "halloween" adventure....

I believe this will be a good place for those who are interested in understanding bible story, as the theme is interesting and distinctive. But this required much re-design and improved execution.

We had really hoped this would be biblically informative and worth the trip from the centre of Salzburg. Sadly, while it may have more appeal for children who might appreciate the maze of displays, we found it very poorly put together, licence taken in the portrayal of biblical characters and not a great reflection of the Gospel message. Sorry...would love to have been able to write a more positive review.

Words cannot describe what they must have been thinking when they created Bible World. The attached photos are just a few highlights of our experience. Thankfully the visit was included on our Salzburg Card, otherwise spending money on this would have been disastrous.

There isn’t really a joined up ‘theme’ with the random stories on the audio guide; and they don’t explain why you should crawl through the various dark passages and leap into dark holes...In addition there are a number of former mannequins placed around Bible World in a dishevelled state and fashion.

The health and safety aspects of this attraction clearly don’t apply. For example, in one section of the museum there is an enclosed mini red maze which leads you to a hole in the wall, which we thought was a slide, however, not even a young child would feel comfortable with the limited amount of space in the slide. There was no obvious place to where the slide comes out but we think it is either in a dark tunnel (see later for details on this!) or a minute hole in the wall over the other side of the museum.

Quite randomly, there is a hole in the ground, with a blue plastic ladder attached to the side; there is no explanation of what is down there but going down it is almost pitch black with lots of hair coming from the ceiling. Quite alarming, as well as confusing, as there is a tunnel leading off into the darkness...

It is quite hard to summarise the whole experience, but we have given a couple of examples. We did not feel that this enlightened our idea of religion, on the contrary, it gives the feeling of a horror museum. If you want a truly unique experience then we advise you to visit Bible World...

The Bible World is just a 10-minute walk from the train station.

If you have time, it is a good place to visit. Here you can experience and know more about the Bible story. The audio guide is included.

With a Salzburg card, you can visit the museum freely.
