City trip to the future
Linz surprises, inspires and changes: whether on the ship on the Danube, at wonderful concerts, high above the city, with the spray can in the graffiti gallery or while experimenting in the museums. Anyone who immerses himself in the unique atmosphere, always finds a reason to come back.
Visitors are swept away by the open atmosphere in the center, by the buildings from different eras, the diverse cultural offerings and by the Danube, which is more than ever part of Linz. The shores are a place of relaxation and culture at the same time: green spaces and bars invite to linger during the day, and the futuristic, illuminated facades of the museums amaze the viewers at night. Just like the exhibitions, which range from contemporary works in the Lentos Art Museum to innovative developments and projects in the Ars Electronica Center. In the Museum of the Future, technological thoughtfulness meets visionary media art.
In the industrial harbor next to the Danube river, you can see an art project of a different kind: “Mural Harbor”. It is Europe’s largest graffiti and muralism gallery with more than 100 sprayed works along the harbor basin. In the nearby industrial area, the globally known group Voestalpine Stahlwelt gives a unique insight about steel and the countless ways it can be used.
