A vibrant region near Linz Ansfelden – a musical locale

The musical heart of Linz can be found in the southern part of the city – where the great composer Anton Bruckner was born in Ansfelden. As a Florian choirboy and cathedral organist in Linz, the entire region helped shape his musical life. Even today, visitors can explore Anton Bruckner’s roots here in the town on the River Traun. The house where he was born is located in the compact town centre, which is where the Anton Bruckner Symphony Trail begins. Meanwhile, nearby shopping centres are teeming with life. This contrast of history and modernity is one of the things that makes Ansfelden so unique.
