Things to do on Holidays in Linz Austria

Well this is one place which we will not recommend if you are looking for a paradise island because this is far from any tourist resort that you may have known. Linz is Austria’s third largest city and is considered an industrial hub, making it a working town. It is almost impossible to miss the dockyards, chemical plants and steelworks when you are on your way towards the city.

A major problem for this place is the PR disaster of being Hitler’s home town. While this might turn many off. Today, the city projects a more progressive image. Nonetheless, it does not mean that you should scratch Linz as a tourist destination from your list because Linz’s selection in 2009 as European City of Culture makes it a place worth a visit.
