Linz, a well-built town, the capital of Upper Austria, stands on the Danube at the influx of the Traun. Its principal manufactures are woollen cloth, tobacco, linen, leather, and machinery. Its public buildings include a national museum, a library of 33,000 books, a bishop's seminary, and a commercial school. A fine bridge crosses the Danube, and there are extensive ship-building yards.
