Recently announced as the Cultural Capital of Europe 2009, Edition Temmen’s guide to Linz-Donau is the first title available to this wonderful destination. Austria’s third city remains relatively unknown compared to Vienna and Salzburg, but Linz’s history is both compelling and intriguing. The guide explores the city’s heritage as a former ‘steel city’ that was the driving force behind Austria’s post-war boom, and how the city began to reinvent itself as a culture orientated centre.

Discover the medieval core behind the baroque facades, explore the provincial metropolis and former imperial residence, and experience the buzzing contemporary art scene and the unobtrusive quiet corners of a fisherman’s village side by side.

Illustrated with pictures of Linz’s famous buildings and distinctive streets, each area of the city is accompanied by a small map detailing sites and buildings of interest. There is an extensive section on the city’s history and its wider place in Austrian history. A ‘Gateway to World Heritage’ section details the surrounding areas outside the city and recommends excursions to places of notable interest. Linz is sure to attract considerable attention throughout its year as Capital of Culture in 2009, so why not discover it first?
