Getting Beyond Torte in Linz, Austria

Culture in Linz isn’t frozen in the amber of Bruckner-worship: This handsome Mitteleuropa city fairly hums with museums, festivals, and galleries, and is a hub of electronica music and tech-based arts (and tech businesses, in general). The angular Lentos art museum provides the perfect backdrop for stunning works by Austrian artists like Klimt and Schiele, as well as work by international modern artists of note. Stroll along the south bank of the Danube through Donaupark both to see quirky public sculpture and to work up an appetite for the requisite slice of local linzer torte. (Take notes so you can conduct a critical tasting of the dessert’s rival Sacher torte when you hit Vienna.)
