As you pull up in your car hire, you will notice that the Ars Electronic Museum is like none other in the world. The building is always aglow with neon lights in many different colours, an unmistakable feature along the skyline. The subjects of the exhibitions do not fall into a certain area but seem to be all over the map. As you walk through the corridors, you will admire the work of many artists and scientists. The museum highlights the interrelationship between the two areas of study and hopes to show the metamorphosis thereof. In the minds of the curators and activist who make it all possible, art and science are not two separate entities; they are one and should be looked at in such a way that they are indistinguishable. The building is also a venue and host to a number of live musical performances throughout the year.
Oberösterreichische Kalkalpen National Park is just south of Linz along highway A9 and is a great place to experience the natural side of Austria. A huge number of hiking trails traverse the wilderness, allowing visitors to immerse themselves in the wonder of nature. The park is home to hundreds of species, 30 of which are included on the endangered list. Bears, lynx and deer are common sights for adventures. Other activities include biking, skiing, and snowshoeing; you may even get the opportunity to take a horse-drawn carriage ride along the river.
The Lento Museum's doors have been open since 1953. The spectacular galleries hold over 1,600 painting and sculpture in a myriad of media.
