The city of Linz sits alongside the Danube River in northern Austria. This diverse city offers a harmonious blend of old and new with its Baroque buildings, such as the Old Town Hall and Hauptplatz, the old town's main square along with futuristic displays at the Ars Electronica Centre.
In the heart of the centre, the cobbled streets are bustling with people browsing around the shops and the side-street cafes serving coffee and the mouth-watering Linzer Torte. Jump on the steep traction train to the hilltop Pöstlingberg to be rewarded with panoramic views of the city and the distant Alp mountains. Linz is home to a vibrant music and arts scene with world-class performances in the Brucknerhaus and the Landestheater.
