Linz Map
The 2015 Ars Electronica Festival is being staged at multiple locations in Linz—they’re only a few streetcar stops apart, or you can walk it in several minutes. The Ars Electronica Center on the Danube is the northernmost point; the former post & packet distribution center, the PostCity, is furthest south.
Post & Packet Distribution Center


Situated amidst the main train station’s yard, the PostCity, a 80,000-m2 facility that used to be the postal service’s letter & parcel distribution center will serve as both the main festival venue and a lab for the city of the future. Visit the Ars Electronica Blog for further impressions of the PostCity.
