On the opposite bank of the Danube, architectural masterpieces of the 19th and 20th centuries are on display in the striking glass-and-steel Lentos Museum of Art. Enjoy world-class music and performances in the Brucknerhaus and the Landestheater, leading-edge offerings in the OK Offenes Kulturhaus Oberösterreich, and exhibitions in the Museums of the Province of Upper Austria.

Linz’s Old City is ideal for a stroll through charming cobblestone streets, past centuries-old architecture. Its spacious Main Square is one of the largest in Central Europe. One of Europe's steepest traction railway takes you on a leisurely ride up Pöstlingberg for a panoramic view of the city with sweeping views of the Alps. And what better way to follow that up than with a boat ride on the beautiful Danube river?
Culture and scenery aren’t all that Linz has to offer. Linz is home to the world-famous Linzer Torte!
