The place isn't huge, it's like a little wonderful town where you can know a few of history and enjoy of course the amazing view of the city. Ideal for any kind of visitors. The church is incredible and with so many details.

Enjoyable trip up by tram. There is not a lot to see. 30 minutes is enough for a quick stroll. It takes around 20 minutes from the centre.

A nice air-conditioned ride to see the Postlingbergbahn Pilgrimage Church and and have a meal at Postlingberg Schlossl on the patio, dining room or historic cocktail lounge.
