Discover Linz on the Danube
Linz: a city trip into the future
Whether you’re on a boat on the Danube, at one of its fabulous concerts, exploring high above the city, with a spray can in your hand at the graffiti gallery or taking part in experiments in the city’s museums, Linz surprises, delights and inspires change. Immerse yourself in this unique atmosphere once and be forever inspired to return.
Visitors are swept away by the relaxed atmosphere of the city centre, the buildings whose magnificent architecture spans the ages, the wide range of cultural events and the Danube, which is integral to Linz – now more than ever. The banks of the river offer ideal places to both relax and take in some culture. Linger a while in the green spaces and local eateries during the day, and wonder at the futuristic, illuminated museum façades at night. Explore fascinating exhibitions ranging from contemporary artworks at the Lentos Kunstmuseum to the innovative developments and projects showcased at the Ars Electronica Center. At the Museum of the Future, pioneering technology meets visionary media arts.
A different kind of art project can be enjoyed a little way downriver in the industrial harbour. Mural Harbor is Europe’s largest gallery of graffiti and murals, with more than 100 spray-painted works exhibited along the dockside. And in the nearby industrial district, voestalpine Stahlwelt offers a unique glimpse behind the scenes of the world-famous steel producer.
