The Musiktheater Linz is a venue of the Landestheater Linz. The building, designed by Terry Pawson, was built between 2008 and 2013 and serves as the theatre and opera house of the city of Linz. The official opening of the music theatre, which was opened by Heinz Fischer on 11 April 2013, took place on 12 April 2013 with the world premiere of the opera Spuren der Verirrten by Philip Glass based on the play of the same name by Peter Handke. Political disputes over the location, the announcement of two architectural competitions and the holding of a referendum were the causes of the several years of delays in the start of construction.

The Castle of Linz is a castle in Linz am Rhein, Germany, built between 1364 and 1368 by Heinrich von Virneburg, who was the archbishop of Cologne at the time. The main function of the castle was to collect river tolls. During the Neuss War in 1475, the castle was besieged and badly damaged. From 1811 to 1851, it served as a prison. The castle lost its importance when the town of Linz am Rhein was sold to Prussia in 1820. In 1942–1945, during the Second World War, the castle was once again used as a prison. The structure today is now privately owned and used as a public venue.
