About Oberbank Linz Donau Marathon

'In Linz beginnt’s' (it begins in Linz) goes the Austrian saying, and it’s spot on. This is a city on the move. Daring public art installations, a burgeoning cultural scene, a cyber centre and a cutting-edge gallery that look freshly minted for a sci-fi movie all signal tomorrow’s Austria, and reveal that Linz has its finger on the pulse of the country's technology industry.

It took a long time coming, but since Linz seized the reins as European Capital of Culture in 2009, the world has been waking up to the charms of Austria’s third city. Sitting astride the Danube, Linz rewards visitors who look beyond its less-than-loveable industrial outskirts.
