"Linz changes" - art once and now

From Adalbert Stifter to Street Art

Nostalgic, modern, chilling, creative, literary-historical: art, literature, graphics. Linz offers insights from Adalbert Stifter to Alfred Kubin to street art.

    Today, Stifter's former apartment houses the Upper Austrian Literature Museum - with original furniture from the writer's estate, including his wedding bed. Thomas Bernhard's travel typewriter has also found a worthy place here.

    Francisco Carolinum

    The Francisco Carolinum Linz offers modern and contemporary art and the world's largest Alfred Kubin collection in the "Kubin Cabinet". But it is also a center for photographic and media art for all of Upper Austria. Here, too, you can take your "virtual" rounds.

    Mural Harbor

    At first it was just a huge mural at Linz harbor. Now there are hundreds of graffitis all over the harbor, which can be explored on guided tours or boat trips. Or maybe you'd like to take up a spray can yourself and let off steam on a gray wall? You can also do that here, it's called a graffiti crash course.
