Linz

Trip Planner Europe  /  Austria  /  Upper Austria  /  Linz
(3.8/5 based on 2,800+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: sightseeing, museums, historic sites
Located on the Danube with a rolling green backdrop, Linz is a city equally rich in nature and culture. The Culture Mile along the Danube combines the two. Austria's third city is home to a host of museums, festivals, and churches--some as old as the 800s--and it was named the European Capital of Culture in 2009. Though it was the city where Adolf Hitler spent his youth, Linz has a history as a city of peace, and it works to uphold that reputation.
