It's nice to drive to the highest spot, look around and enjoy the view which is really nice from there! The drive itself with the pösltlinger bahn though is not really an attraction on its own in my opinion. But the views on the way...More

We went in the first half of March. We got lucky that it wasn’t too cold, but it was definitely a low tourist time. The church was closed. I think we were the only people to do the Grottenbahn all day. There was a fair...More

You can start at the Hauptplatz and conveniently climb up the Pöstlingberg, where you have the best view above Linz.

I read the earlier reviews but decided to go anyway. It costs just over €6 for a return ticket. Over 20 minutes each way, so I don't think that's too much for the experience in the old tram, let alone the views you get from...More

This Tram is a great way to spend some time traveling along the streets of Linz. It's one of the world's steepest Adhesion Railways (Opened in 1898). However with that said the ride is nice but there's not much to do when you reach the...More

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.
