The charming town of Linz in the northern part of Austria is a fascinating destination on Danube River cruises. Here, a mix of modern and ancient culture can be seen, aging from extinct empires through contemporary history. In fact, it was in the Basilica St. Michael where the wedding scene from "The Sound of Music" was filmed. The city is also home to another musical icon - the Mozart House! Catch a glimpse of contemporary culture at the Ars Electronica Center. Or take a short trip across the border to the Czech Republic, where you can see the perfectly preserved medieval town of Cesky Krumlov. Biking, hiking, and walking tours highlight these Danube River itineraries. Contact us when you're ready to start planning your Linz, Austria experience!
