Culture, art and steel city on the Danube
The capital of Upper Austria, located directly on the beautiful blue Danube, is also the third largest city in Austria. Originally perceived as a "steel city", Linz has developed into an important centre for cultural events in recent years. In addition to the famous Linzer Klangwolke, the Brucknerfest or the Prix Ars Electronica, Linz also makes a name for itself with the Pflasterspektakel, the annual film festival "Crossing Europe" or the Bubble Days in the Linz harbour.
Linz is also an important international congress and conference venue - favoured by the location of large companies such as Voestalpine AG.
