Linz 09 - EU Capital of Culture

When people think of Austria and culture, Linz usually doesn't come to mind. Even among Austrians the city is widely overlooked.
The EU's choice of Linz as cultural capital will be a big step forward and help the city overcome its undeserved past reputation.

Nice! Not a city that springs to mind readily when people talk about Austria, but it looks very pleasant indeed!

Very clean and interesting looking city. I agree, Linz is quite overlooked, when one first thinks of Austria, so hopefully as EU Capital of Culture, this will change.

Thanks!

You're right, it was indeed very clean. I didn't stray too far from the main attractions, though.

Wonderful city. I love how the buildings are so well maintained.

Strange but I don't know the city of Linz. But it looks very clean and beautiful but not so active on the pictures, but I'm sure it is .

snowman159:

Thank you for sharing pictures from Linz. Unfortunately, I haven't been there yet, except passing by (and seeing shining Linz Hauptbahnhof sign in early morning from a night bus window).

Actually, Linz looks familiar to me. Situated in a highland landscape, full of Austria-Hungarian neo-renesaince architecture and trams going thorough pedestrian zone areas. An urban example to follow.

Btw. Are there any news about building a highway from Linz to A/CZ border (Wullowitz)? The D3 Prague - Tabor - Ceske Budejovice - CZ/A border highway is to be completed in 2018. In fact, there is not much in "LINZ | voestalpine-Welt | In Bau" thread to read .

Greets from Brno.

They plan to start construction in August 2009 and to finish it 2013/2014.
