Say Linz, say change

Linz on the Danube is an innovative, contemporary city where culture, architecture, nature and science coexist as a satisfying whole. The European Cultural Capital of 2009 is true to its slogan: “Say Linz, say change”.

Do not await a destination like Vienna or Salzburg, where history dominates sightseeing. Linz is the place that opens up your mind for the future, makes you inquisitive about what contemporary art offers, and gives you an idea about how a successful city of the 21st century works. Be open for new thinking, new forms of culture, all in a liveable town.

Contemporary art, the world of technology, interactive museums and green oases await the visitor in Austria’s most interesting city, which strives to be both trailblazer and trendsetter. ‘Culture for all’ is the theme evident in Linz’s many events, exhibitions and public spaces.

Linz’s city centre is both shopping paradise and pleasure dome. Hospitality and gastronomy are taken seriously here and Linzer Torte is the city’s sweetest and most famous ambassador.
Linz, the capital of music… 

The aspirations of the Cultural Capital of Linz are more dynamic and more ambitious than almost anywhere else. Linz now boldly opens up new dimensions of cultural experience — the Musiktheater am Volksgarten opens in April 2013. With seats for 1,200 people the opera house is Austria’s biggest cultural building. The technical equipment is unique. The stage serves as a transport hub and with a diameter of 32m is one of the largest in the world.

The programme offers classical, as well as modern operas, theatres and other events. Enjoy experimentation and encounters with the extraordinary. The city is a hive of cultural activity — and the present diverse mosaic of images, sounds, performers and events reflects an enriching diversity of styles and sounds.
