Fodor's Review

Taking its name from the ancient Celtic settlement that was the origin of the city of Linz, this contemporary art museum hugs the banks of the Danube on the Altstadt side of the river. Designed by Zürich architects Weber and Hofer, its long, low-slung "shoe-box" gray-glass structure picks up the reflection of the water and, at night, lit in shimmering blue or red, really stands out. The collection contains an impressive number of paintings by Austrian Secession artists Klimt, Schiele, and Kokoschka, along with works by other artists, including sculptures by Alfred Hrdlicka and one of those famous silkscreen portraits of Marilyn Monroe by Andy Warhol. All in all, the museum has about 1,500 artworks, more than 10,000 sketches, and nearly 1,000 photographs. The excellent restaurant has an outdoor terrace with beautiful views of the river.
