A View of Linz
A Focus on the City

The focus of the Stadtmuseum’s collection is quite clear: the diversity of Linz in all its manifestations and facets. In this part of the collection on display, works of art along with folkloric objects and other rare documents bear witness in equal measure to the citizens* of Linz, their traditions and to specific occurrences. This includes the ever-changing cityscape, urban life, as well as historical events and attributions such as that of steel city or Führer city”, the only one within Austria during the National Socialist dictatorship. What connects this past with the present and what continuities are still discernible today?

We also ask ourselves the questions, what it is that typsches Linz and what it is like living in the Danube city on the edge of the Alps? The exhibits

originate from different epochs and recount tales of forgotten, mundane and extraordinary moments from different perspectives. Together they reveal the special features of the city and create a vivid picture of Linz.
