About Linz

Linz is the third-largest city of Austria and capital of the state of Upper Austria (German: Oberoesterreich) and it is a symbiosis as an international creative city of industry and culture – nestled in a beautiful natural landscape by the Danube.

The designation of the European Capital of Culture 2009 as a UNESCO City of Media Arts is another milestone paving the way for Linz to become the creative centre of Europe.

Linz is well known for the "Linzer Torte", which is said to be the oldest cake in the world, with its first recipe dating from 1653.
