If you want to experience change, come to Linz.
No other city in Austria has experienced such an impressive transformation in recent years. New, impressive cultural buildings in the past 15 years, creative minds and its year as the European Capital of Culture in 2009 have sparked the city’s continual focus on the future. With its urban atmosphere on the Danube, lively city centre, museums bursting with unique media arts and highly acclaimed productions in its concert halls, the Linz of today is an exciting destination.
Linz represents future trends and modernity, but knows how to treasure its history and roots. All of the influences of the past have made the city what it is today: one of Austria’s most exciting urban centres, with a lively cultural scene. Visitors experience an authentic city, where guests are part of the colourful scenery on the Danube and become locals for a time. Inquisitive visitors can try out new things, make new connections and open up their minds to new developments in this UNESCO City of Media Arts.
A visit to the city of the future reflects the spirit of our times, exchanging clichés for authenticity.
