Typical square in Europe, but it's still a must see in Linz. Do walk around the small streets, you will find nice antique and restaurant. It's good if you ride bike too.

After passing through small Xmas market stands and eathing some non forgetable "Bratwurst mitt Sauerkrout", listening... More

The most expensive Xmas market i have ever visited...more expensive than Hamburg - Leipzig - Hyde Park. ...and no atmosphere, no music ambience ...actually rather sterile and unwelcoming ....The LOCATION is fabulous...Historic beautiful and captivating, the Market however doesn't add to the attractiveness of the >Hauptplatz< it's just >There< in the middle and that's it!

The city center with its old architectural buildings gives the feel of an old grand city with many stories to tell.. It is well connected by the tram service and has many shops and restaurants around it.

We stopped in Linz during a river cruise. The square was only about 3 blocks from the port/dock. Lots of shops, cafes, ATM and Tourist Info Center. Lots to see and do. Close to everything.

Great for having a drink and eat some healthy foods from several countries, enjoying the outside venues for ice cream, beverages and light foods.The main square is in the middle of the pedestrian area, to the North abutting to the Danube and has great views to the Poestlingberg and other sites like 'Ars Elecgtronica'

We went to Linz because we lived there from 1949-1952, during reconstruction after WWII. We had pictures from that time that we wanted to compare to now. At that time, the bridge across the Danube led to the Russian zone, a place verboten to Americans. The plaza, a major gathering place for Hitler supporters when he was in town, remains... More
