For one special night on 27th May 2011, Long Night of the Churches will be celebrating the churches of the dioceses in many parts of the country and is inviting people to come and visit as many of these unique buildings as they can fit into the evening.

This year roughly 260 churches will be taking part and these will predominantly be in Vienna although Linz, Klagenfurt, Salzburg and Graz will also feature to offer people the chance to see a wide representation of different locations.

The event will begin with city wide bell tolling as soon as the church clocks strike 17:50 and after the sound has finished ringing through the city streets, special services will then begin. The services will often feature full choirs combined with Bible readings and then visitors are invited to take a tour around the churches where guides will go into the history of each place.

As many as 160,000 people have taken part in previous evenings and this huge number of extra visitors is set to cause difficulties when booking cheap Linz hotels with so many more people in the cities.

Lek Boonlert, marketing head at commented: “Organising a hotel stay in plenty of time will be essential for anyone planning on visiting Linz on this busy date.”
