Linz – Pulsating Upper Austrian provincial capital
Culture takes place: no matter if classical concerts at the Brucknerhaus, extraordinary Open Air clouds of sound at the Danube park, the Easter-concerts “Passion” in different churches or the whole inner city as a stage for the streets artist festival. Busy hustle and bustle in the shopping streets and exuberant atmosphere in bars and pubs place Linz as a town with a high living standard. Idyllic alleys, historical buildings and the baroque main square contrast with Europe’s only public virtual cave at the Ars Electronica Center.
Between Böhmerwald (the Bohemian Forest) and Dachstein
Upper Austria – at 11,980 km², the fourth largest state in the Alpine republic – invites you to the holiday experience of a lifetime in the utterly indescribable diversity of its landscape.
