Ars Electronica Center as an innovative venue for your event

The Ars Electronica Center is unique. Located directly on the Danube and offering a view of Linz’s old city, the Ars Electronica Center is the structural implementation, along with its characteristic glass façades, of what the Ars Electronica represents: A place where you can discover and research, experiment and explore, a place that chooses to portray the world of tomorrow and combines and presents influences stemming from various ways of thinking and methods of observation. As Upper Austria’s museum with the most visitors, it is also an attractive venue for events of any kind.

Events Offering a Look at the Future

3,000 square metres for exhibitions, 1,000 for research, 400 for seminars and conferences, 650 for catering and events as well as 1,500 square metres for open-air events.

All the event rooms offer state-of-the-art sound and projection possibilities. Our event service is at your disposal for the professional production of your event. Amaze your guests with visionary events.


Combine your event with an exciting associated programme that has been specially adapted to your target group at the Ars Electronica Center. Our Ars Electronica Solution team is at your disposal to assist you in creating unique events and shows. The clever use of innovative technologies and novel worlds of experiences, for example Real-Time-3D, Augmented Reality, Virtual Environments, Musical Visualisations, Ambient Design, Interface Design for product presentations at trade fairs and the Quadcopter Dance Ensemble, ensures the ultimate show experience. We are also happy to assist you in designing the right programme for your event.

Not only the contents, but also the architecture of the oft-distinguished building presents practically no limitations when it comes to designing an event. From the Snowboard Arena for the best Red Bull riders, whose pulse rate can be seen in real-time on the façade, to the gala evening for 500 people hosted by voestalpine with the Flying Bach Project, your ideas have unlimited freedom.
