Edgy and Authentic
Linz is a little bit different. This “City of Smart Tourism” has historic beauty aplenty: Its expansive main square – located right by the Danube – and its quaint Old Town have a relaxed and authentic feel.
But Linz is also defined by a constant desire for change and innovation. Once primarily an industrial centre, Linz has become a pioneer when it comes to culture, art and technology. Home to a harbour that doubles as one of Europe’s biggest graffiti galleries and the cutting-edge art-slash-technology museum Ars Electronica Center, Linz is a destination for travellers looking for the unfamiliar.
