Linz, Austria

Strolling through Linz is like exploring the ages. The very heart of the Austrian city - which is notable in itself for being the third largest settlement in the country - is a plethora of architectural styles from throughout time, with the sizable Old Town being particularly noteworthy. Situated directly at the foot of the castle, the tangled lanes provide great opportunities for adventurers who love to explore the cities they visit.

Churches will undoubtedly feature on your to-see list, with the New Cathedral being a particular highlight. This enormous building stretches 134 metres into the air with its extraordinary tower, and the auditorium has space for 20,000 people.

But while the history is certainly wonderful to explore, there is also an unstoppable sense of fun that helps to bring the town to life and makes it all the more worthwhile to visit - particularly during the summer when the streets are alive with numerous festivals.

Most of the cultural hotspots are clustered in and around the extensive Old Town, making it easy to do everything in Linz that you could possibly need to. The churches, the Botanic Gardens, the vast majority of the museums - they're all within walking distance.
