There was marathon going on in Linz but we still got to see the city which was named Europe’s culture capital in 2009. It is most famous for 2 things:
1) Music: Mozart composed his “Linz” symphony here and Beethoven composed his 8th Symphony. (I think Mozart named his better!)
2) The Linzer Torte which is supposed to be the oldest cake in the world (from 1653).
