the Mainquare of Linz is quite nice - you have in summer a lot of "Gastgarten" all around and a good view to some attractions. Here starts the Pöstlingbergbahn. In the winter you have from end of November till christmas the biggest christmasmarket of linz.

Well, a nice place like there are many in other cities. Place was hectic, bustling and lots of traffic. From this place are many small alleys leading into the old town - worth a visit.

If you are in the city proper, you should try to see the Hauptplatz in the daytime (preferably on Market Day) and after dark. There is lots of pretty architecture and a nice ambience.

If you go to Linz, you can't escape this famous landmark. It was situated in the heart of Linz very nice for site seeing and having coffee or ice cream after.

A place to visit in the evening or during Market days. Great patios, a hub of activity, a short walk to the river and bridge. One of the oldest squares in Austria.

As far as we know the ships dock close to the Hauptplatz. It is a few minutes walk from the docking area to the Hauptplatz. Leave the ship and turn right - you should see the Hauptplatz after a short walk.
