Sinnesrausch – a rush for the senses
24 May – 13 October 2019

The OK Oberösterreichisches Kulturquartier is again offering an exciting project for all ages this year. Basic elements of the fine arts, such as points, lines, space and time, are being thematically addressed at this year’s Sinnesrausch. As always, the city’s paths, bridges and stairs, as well as various art spaces and the rooftops themselves, will be included in the project. Sinnesrausch is worth a visit for young and old – everyone is invited to splash and climb to their heart’s content.

33rd Pflasterspektakel

More than just children’s eyes will light up this year when 300 professional artists from all over the world populate Linz’s city centre.

Clownery, comedy, acrobatics, juggling, aerial art, dance, puppet theatre, fire shows and music bring Linz’s streets and courtyards to life.

The Kaleidoscope Nights in the spectacle tent will transport you to another world. Once again, there are also a lot of offers for the little festival guests.

2019 World Rowing Championships

The World Rowing Championships will take place at the regatta course in Ottensheim near Linz from 25 August to 1 September 2019.

More than 1,500 participants from 80 nations and up to 50,000 spectators will make this event an unforgettable experience.

Krone festival

This year’s highlight in the centre of Linz will take place from 22 to 24 August 2019. Once again more than 70 different acts await the numerous visitors. National and international stars from the fields of pop, rock and cabaret will appear at various locations in the centre of Linz – and admission is free!

The visualised Klangwolke in the Donaupark celebrates its 40th birthday this year. The music event directed by David Pountney will begin at 7:30 pm on 7 September 2019. Thematically, this year’s “cloud of sound” is dedicated to the sun. The focus will be on the relationship of man to this heavenly body. As in previous years, the Klangwolke will again be an interactive spectacle in the Donaupark.

The series of events will be rounded off by the children’s Klangwolke in the Donaupark at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, 8 September 2019 – the topic will be The Little Prince – and the classical Klangwolke at 7:30 p.m. on 28 September 2019 in the Brucknerhaus. Picture: Andreas Röbl
