Third Appearance at the Urfahr Fair
LINZ CHANGES Exhibition Tent Drew Big Crowds
(Linz, May 7, 2012) Back by popular demand, the LINZ CHANGES exhibition tent made its third appearance at the Urfahr Fair from April 28 to May 6 and got a tremendous reception once again this year. Lots of folks took advantage of the opportunity to enjoy this creative and entertaining presentation of the City of Linz and all it has to offer. An audience favorite was the “Finger Marathon” in which guests could use tablet computers to let their fingers do the running over a stretch of Linz’s biggest race. Other very popular attractions were the 16-meter-long panorama wall featuring high-definition photos of the cityscape, the 150-m2 aerial view of Linz laid out on the tent’s floor, and the “Views” installation with its historical postcards and interactive table offering an excursion into the city’s past.
