This place is very nice. Easy to find, easy to park, beautiful to see, the list of compliments goes on. It does have a much more relaxed vibe compared to Vienna, and the opera houses there. This theater is more for everyone, and you might...More

Linz boasts a lavish new house to enjoy classical music. We skipped the music, but took in the architecture (daring, but well done in my view) and the gastronomy (not bad, but far from pushy... i.e. prepare for a wait).
