Ars Electronica Center


Just across the river, and worth a trip to the city alone, is the unusual Ars Electronica Center, Hauptstrasse 2. A Tardis-like temple to science and technology, inside the glowing box is an impressive series of interactive high-tech exhibits. One highlight is the “CAVE”, a virtual-reality room with 3D projections on the walls and floor. Basement areas explore future developments in biology, materials, the brain and robots – set aside several hours and get stuck into the hands-on experiments.
