With €15m spent at the Mauthausen Memorial site already and more planned, this is a must see for anyone remotely interested in WWII.
You get the feeling it is in a transitional period with the map & audio-guide feeling a little old (some parts listed on the map are now inaccessible) and the ultra modern museum with photos displayed up until last year but it doesn't take away from the experience.
I can't get over why it's only a €2 entrance fee, it could easily be more.
To really absorb all the information and tour the complete site, this is an all day attraction although 4 hours would be adequate.
Note it's not in Linz, it's about 20km from town.
