This historic plaza located near the Danube River is the location of one of their holiday markets. Located within easy walking distance from river cruise ship docks. Surrounded by interesting shops and cafes. Also a good meeting point for city walking tours.

There are lots of stores and places to eat in this plaza. You can sit and catch some rays. Also a variety of stores along here. It’s a good place to catch a tram if you want to explore the area.

I happened to visit this plaza the one day of the year when it was used as the finish line of a marathon race. It was very crowded. Parts (the race course) of it were blocked off. There were many tents around in the plaza...More

To some, this may appear to just be a large open space in the middle of the old city, but for those who really appreciate it, the buildings surrounding the square are wonderful, and of course the Trinity statue with it's gold top really is...More

I visited Linz in the middle of December. The Christmas market was held. I experienced hot wine first time. It's very good for cold night. There are other Christmas shops around the Hauptplatz. I could enjoy shopping too.

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.
