Culture in Linz is extraordinarily diverse. There is interactive art in the virtual worlds of the Ars Electronica Center. 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.

Big events highlight the cultural calendar in Linz:

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!
