Linz from above – Impressions from Höhenrausch 2016


Linz from above

I already told you about my move to the Upper Austrian capital city Linz some time ago. I absolutely love living in Linz, even though I am on the other side of the world right now. There are so many amazing possibilities and events to attend. I call Linz my home already but maybe that’s to do with my charming boyfriend also? Who knows? 😉

What is Höhenrausch?

The event, with the well-sounding name Höhenrausch, is held from the end of May until mid October and and showcasts various interesting art projects. What’s so special about it? Höhenrausch takes you up on the roofs in Linz.

This years theme is Fremde Engel – in all its facets: from classic church angels to little innocents and abstract angels. Want to know more about angels? Then do not miss the climb with the Engels-ABC.

Starting point is the OK-Platz. The walk leads through adjacent buildings all the way up to the roofs. The program doesn’t only cater for kids but for adults too. Be it a Flying Fox (which I was kind of disappointed in. It’s not a real Flying Fox, it’s more like slow abseiling thing), a modern hall of mirrors which shows Linz from different angles, a climbing crag, a Fallen Angel in the Ursulinenkirche and of course the Keine Sorgen Turm. I noticed the Keine Sorgen Turm back in December and have really wanted to see it since. You can only visit it if you take the full tour but the view is definitely worth it.

Grüß dich, I'm Viki!

At Chronic Wanderlust, I write about my two great passions: travelling and diving – and have been doing so since 2013.

I usually spend a solid majority of the year travelling to experience extraordinary underwater adventures, taking road trips through countries I don’t know (yet) or exploring my home country of Austria.

As a certified divemaster, passionate underwater & travel photographer, road trip enthusiast and individual traveller, I collect unique moments all over the world.

I don’t believe that severe cases of wanderlust – aka chronic wanderlust – can be cured, only treated. On this blog, I want to show you how this can best be realised.
