Linz Nightlife, Austria

Linz Nightlife – Food and Scenery

The city of Linz offers a great variety of entertainment venues, from cozy restaurants to high rated casinos and from prestigious theatres to lively nightclubs. Although not as busy as the capital Vienna, or as the student city Graz, Linz is sure to offer you all kinds of relaxing spots and opportunities.

The city is also home to a large number of prestigious arts and music festivals which animate the streets both by day and night, so you are sure to find something that suites your tastes. If you’re looking for something to eat you must begin with the 350 year old recipe for the Linzer Torte, a delicious cake which has the same taste since it was first invented and is a well known local specialty. There are also many garden restaurants and coffee houses which can offer you a very pleasant daytime relaxation and try some of the Upper Austrian culinary specialties. At the Linz09 Information Center, you can find a coupon for € 9 that is accepted in most restaurants and offers a great value for money.

Linz Nightlife – Music and Theatre

While in Linz, you definitely can’t miss a theatre performance at the historic Landestheater that dates back from the early 17th century. It is the city’s number one venue for music, concerts and theatre and it also has the Kammerspiele where experimental and contemporary performances take place. The Brucknerhaus is where you can listen to classical music concerts devoted especially to Anton Bruckner, but also to Mozart or Beethoven and to more modern types of music. It is also home to the prestigious annual Bruckner Festival where performers from all over the world come together and share ideas and projects.

Linz Nightlife – Dancing and Clubbing

Linz by night becomes a real adult playground and it gets busier than you might think. The Monkey Circus, one of the most animated spots in town, offers you unbelievably diverse scenery and the most exotic cocktails, which take inspiration from all over the world. The gay community usually hangs out at Stonewall, which is best at weekends after 10 PM.

If you are looking for a more classical atmosphere and for some high quality wine you should stop at the Alte Welt Weinkeller, where you can enjoy a timeless rustic atmosphere and listen to live bands or poets at least once a week. The biggest dance club in town is Mausefalle, with numerous bars and independent sound systems. The € 5 entrance fee gives you a free drink and guarantees you access in all the club’s areas, where you can usually party until 3 am or even 6 am at weekends.
