Linz is one of Austria’s biggest cities, with a population of 190.000. It is a modern, cosmopolitan city, a combination between diversity, design, and creativity. Hitler was planning to turn it in the largest cultural center of the Third Reich.
On our short visit, we managed to walk a little on the streets of Linz and to admire its central square “Hauptplatz”, hosting one of the biggest projects of the city- rooftop art- a.k.a “HOHENRAUSCH”.
The Voestalpine Museum is a proof of what we call “the German quality”. Although we had a hard time finding the building in the industrial area of the city, I’m telling you, it was a good way to invest those 8 euros, in spite of the fact that we had left just about 20 minutes until the museum closed.
Steel is used for the production of many things, starting from beer caps to spaceships. I swear you, it is absolutely impressive what Austrian people produced using this material. The museum is totally striking!
Mariendom -New Cathedral – the largest cathedral in Austria, is a touristic attraction that we discovered by accident. A truly interesting project: the Hermit in the Tower, took place within the frames of the ECoC, but is still visible, as we observed and as Georg Steiner, the director of the tourist office from Linz, explained to us.
Experience a new dimension of travel through space and time. Immerse yourself into a realm of breathtaking 3D imagery and behold incredible high-definition visuals in jumbo, 16×9-meter format!
Due to the lack of time, our last place to visit was the Lentos Kunstmuseum.
According to our initial plans we had a couple of other things in our agenda: the Postlingberg church, to be reached via a little train ride, offering a mesmerizing view of the city, the Botanical Gardens, plus a walk on the Old Urfahr West.
However, it is clear that Linz is not a city that can be visited just during a short city break, although it will be a memorable one. Personally, I was captured by Linz and I will return whenever I will have the chance to do so.
