Why come to Linz?
The European Cultural Capital of 2009, the UNESCO City of Media Arts is genuinely unique.
Linz is home to Europe‘s most modern opera house and a vibrant contemporary culture scene, as well as having a flourishing economy with leading international companies.
The superbly-preserved Old Town isn’t the only place where the connection between this legendarily eco-friendly city and its long history is evident. Yet people in Linz prefer to look to the future – and find the joy of living in the here and now.
Linz is UNESO City of Media Arts and Ars Electronica. It hosts the AEC, the Museum of the Future—the place where all the diverse blends of artistic genres, scientific domains and technological directions are displayed and processed.
Every year, the Ars Electronica – Festival of Art, Technology and Society – reveals intellectual and artistic insights of the highest calibre on a chosen future-oriented theme.
Easy to approach
Linz is not only situated in the middle of Europe, but is also easily reachable from all directions and by all forms of transport.
