Situated in a bending of the river Danube (celtic Lentos) Linz is surrounded by the smooth hills called "Mühlviertel". Linz was founded as a trading place. In the Middleages Linz became an important, international well known merchant town and later a growing industrial centre. Nowadays Linz has also changed to a remarkable Cultural City with many representative modern buildings like the music hall "Brucknerhaus" , the modern gallery "Lentos" and the new "Ars Electronic Centre".
