Linz is as proud as punch of its new Musiktheater, a strikingly geometric opera house designed by London-based architect Terry Pawson, which opened in April 2013...
It's all about the view at this glass-fronted wine bar on the square facing Mariendom. Drink in the view of the cathedral's neo-Gothic pinnacles and spires over a glass of Grüner Veltiner or Zweigelt on the terrace.
Pass on the mediocre food and go straight for the freshly tapped Stiegl beer at the cavernous Klosterhof. The chestnut tree–shaded beer garden has space for 1500 thirsty punters.
Just off the Hauptplatz, this industro-chic, monochrome bar is a cool spot to converse over Austria, French and Italian wines, Mühlviertel speciality beers and antipasti.
Full of cosy nooks, this oriental-style tearoom has a terrific tea selection...
Dockside Posthof covers everything from blues, funk and rock gigs to cutting-edge theatre and dance. Festivals are occasionally held here. Take bus 27 or 270 to Hafen/Posthofstrasse.
Another shining example of Linz' cultural renaissance is this cultural centre, lodged in a former tobacco factory...
Linz’ premier music venue stages top-drawer classical and jazz concerts. There is a dedicated program for kids of different ages (‘mini’ and ‘midi’ music).
There’s no finer spot to see Linz light up than this glass-walled cafe on the top floor of the Ars Electronica Center. Pick out the landmarks over a sunset cocktail.
DJs spin hip-hop, electro and funk at this upbeat bar, where party goers spill out onto Kirchengasse in summer. Upstairs is rough ‘n’ ready Stadtwerk, which hosts clubbing events, gigs and party nights.
