Discover the "Colourful City on the Rhine

Colourful. More colourful. Linz.


The town of Linz am Rhein is a colourful, multifaceted town full of history and traditions. The historic town on the romantic Middle Rhine is known for its picturesque, historic backdrop, the varied programme of events and the typical Rhenish joie de vivre. But the image of our special town is also characterised by the active participation of its citizens and the living of its history and long-standing traditions. These special features and characteristics are actively conveyed to the outside world by the new brand, which was developed together with Linzers and presented in January 2019.

Another important point is to maintain and further develop our own living space. The environment and sustainability are just as important to the people of Linz as fair and respectful interaction. Since 2019, the city of Linz am Rhein has held the title of "Fairtrade Town" and the municipality of Linz the title of "Fairtrade Verbandsgemeinde".

Urban friendships/partnerships also play a major role in Linz. The friendships and partnerships, some of which have existed for many decades, are cultivated and celebrated through mutual visits and exchanges, e.g. at carnivals, anniversaries etc.

What is special about Linz? As soon as you enter the historical pearl on the Romantic Middle Rhine, you experience pure deceleration. Come by and let yourself be enchanted by the "colourful city on the Rhine".
