You will see a great view of Linz and Danube river up here. Very good walk or bike ride too. It's a must-go in Linz.

It is nice trip up to the hill. If the weather is nice you can probably also have nice views, but we were not so lucky.

Nice ride through a nice scenery. Excellent view over the city Linz at the top. Nice (short) walk possible at the top. About half way there is also a zoo to visit. If you would like to have a nice trip up the hill, take this little train.

After the Höchenhaus you should take the old tram up to the mountain. You will get a nice view, and have a walk around. Grottenbahn is also located at the end stop of the Pöstlingbergbahn, and it's great for kids. You will also find a church on the top.

This is a great way to spend a couple of hours and to get a view of the city. You have to buy your tickets in the Hauptplatz and then go to the centre of the square to catch the little tram. The route is across the bridge over the Danube and then after a few city streets, a long... More

Nice way to cap off the day after cycling. Buy an adventurers ticket-return trip plus all day tram fare, hop on the tram; change at the main square and slowly climb. Lovely views from the top and you can grab a beer or wine and relax! Trams run on the half hour.

The Pöstlingberg is the highest hill surrounding Urfahr (the name of this area). Give it a try and enjoy the good view of the city. Tipp: it is also possible to walk and there is the so called Grottenbahn which is definitely a high-light for kids!!

Visiting Linz, make sure you get a three day pass and the fare on the tram is included. it is the steepest standard wheeled tram anywhere averaging over a 1:5 slope. The views are breathtaking and the reataurant is good again with wonderful views from the balcony The underground fairy tale waxworks is obviously an acquired taste and the Austrian... More
