A city as diverse as its people: Visitors to Linz experience the power of the Danube, sweeping views from Pöstlingberg hill, emotionally charged performances on the city’s stages and a glimpse of the future in its museums. Encounters with its residents give fascinating insights into everyday events.

Worth seeing – Highlights

The Danube alone, which flows right through the city centre, is a source of strength for residents and visitors alike. Anyone who climbs Pöstlingberg hill – home to Europe’s steepest adhesion railway – will be rewarded with far-reaching views. Visit the Ars Electronica Center to catch a glimpse of the future. This museum shows visitors how artificial intelligence is changing our lives. And the city’s other museums are no exception when it comes to showcasing how diverse Linz can be: While the voestalpine Stahlwelt experience brings the city’s industrial plants to life, the Lentos Kunstmuseum is renowned for its collection of contemporary art. Another popular – and colourful – attraction is the Mural Harbor graffiti gallery, where fresh, new highlights are always on rotation.

But Linz isn’t just about the new. Take a guided walk through the city centre to reveal Linz’s roots. And emotions run high at the nearby theatres and concert halls: While the Brucknerhaus concert hall, which is located directly on the Danube, has unique acoustics, the Musiktheater in Linz is one of Europe’s most state-of-the-art opera houses, showcasing operas as well as musicals and dance performances.

Linz has many facets just waiting to be discovered. A warm welcome awaits visitors to this lively city, inviting them to enjoy Linz’s leisurely atmosphere and the people who make the city what it is. By the way, Linz is on the cultural route "Road of Emperors and Kings".
