The city of Linz is home to a vibrant music and arts scene, seamlessly blending traditional and contemporary arts.
Culture in Linz is extraordinarily diverse. Across the Danube from the Ars Electronica Center, architectural masterpieces of the 19th and 20th centuries are on display in the striking glass-and-steel Lentos Museum of Art. Enjoy world-class music and performances in the Brucknerhaus and the Landestheater, leading-edge offerings in the OK Offenes Kulturhaus Oberösterreich, and exhibitions in the Museums of the Province of Upper Austria. In addition, in April 2013, the new Musiktheater lifted the curtain as Europe's most advanced opera house.
Linz offers international art and culture for every taste.
