  The Danube River in Linz
by seamandrew

Favorite thing: The Danube River ranks at the top of my list of favorite things about Linz. Primarily because of the beauty and serenity the river adds to this bustling city, but also because of the significance of the river to the city. Without the Danube, there would most certainly never had been a Linz. The Danube has served the city of Linz as a source of water, a method of transportation, and for shipping which was a boom to the industry. Today, it continues to do all of these, only to much less a degree than it once did. Today, tourism is probably the most important role it plays in the Linzer economy, but steel can still be seen carried down and up the river on barges, boats travel up and down the river deposting travelers, and the water is also used to produce hydroelectric power.

Fondest memory: With my brother-in-law and his family living in Linz, I have plenty of great memories and will certainly accumulate more and more with each visit. I suppose the best are the time spent with my wife and her family walking along the Danube or walking through the city.
