Linz, Oberösterreich, Österreich
A city as diverse as its people: Visitors to Linz experience the power of the Danube, sweeping views from Pöstlingberg hill, emotionally charged performances on the city’s stages and a glimpse of the future in its museums. Encounters with its residents give fascinating insights into everyday events. 
Linz on the Danube has its sights set on the future; it’s a modern city with an eventful history, secluded yet cosmopolitan. The capital city of Upper Austria has character. Explore the city, and you’re sure to gain a close friendship. The Danube alone, which flows right through the city centre, is a source of strength for residents and visitors alike. Anyone who climbs Pöstlingberg hill – home to Europe’s steepest adhesion railway – will be rewarded with far-reaching views. Visit the Ars Electronica Center to catch a glimpse of the future. This museum shows visitors how artificial intelligence is changing our lives. And the city’s other museums are no exception when it comes to showcasing how diverse Linz can be: While the voestalpine Stahlwelt experience brings the city’s industrial plants to life and the Lentos Kunstmuseum is renowned for its collection of contemporary art, another popular – and colourful – attraction is the Mural Harbor graffiti gallery, where fresh, new highlights are always on rotation. 

All you need to bring along is a sense of curiosity, an interest in unique cultural experiences and the courage to open yourself up and simply enjoy your time here. A short trip to Linz comes with new experiences and will be the start of a friendship that’s sure to make your stay unforgettable.
