the creative heart of Europe

The „Tabakfabrik“ is located in the creative heart of Europe and is therefore often referred to as the same. It is a direct partner of San José, the capital of Silicon Valley, and is based on the four pillars of creativity, sociality, work and education. Because of this, it provides the perfect place for great innovations. Located in the heart of the city of Linz, a former working-class city, it also represents a place today that combines traditional craftsmanship with modern and innovative solutions of the future. Since the Columbus concept is ideally suited to that of the Tabakfabrik, Columbus was selected from 700 applicants to settle in the Tabakfabrik and benefit from this innovative engine. There would be no better corporate location for Columbus.
