Linz has the coolest stuff to do and see. Let me show you what I mean.
Linz has a bad reputation with some. Why? - There was a time when people said that the steel city was a dirty, smelly place. That was true until the mid-1970s, but then something happened - Linz changed. Suddenly a music theater appeared on the banks of the Danube, art installations appeared, the Museum of the Future opened its doors, it became the European Capital of Culture, the UNESCO City of Media Art and much more .......... On this tour you will discover the history of Linz since the original Celtic settlement, how important trade was and is, why Linz was once more important to Austria than Vienna, the oldest documented amputation in the world, the oldest cake recipe in the world, named after a place who wrote some amazing planetary laws here who went to school here and what he did on the main square in 1938, why is Linz called the Steel City who was here in the second world war, and much more. The tour leads from the main square to the castle, before returning to the Landhaus and ending at Austria's largest church. The tour will be done in English by a native speaker. We can also provide the tour in Austrian, Welsh and Portuguese. Spaces on the tour are limited due to the current Pandemic regulations therefore please book your place. You have the option of either paying online or in person (also with debit/credit card or cash).
