The little train travels through an underground dwarf world (10 minutes). Then you can walk through a model of Linz Hauptplatz in the 19th century. In the side streets are scenes from fairy tales. Explanations are in German and English. Booklets are available in English too. Finally, you leave via the gift shop, with little souvenirs and sweets.

This attraction is what we English refer to as "twee". Three laps of a dwarf mine aboard a dragon train - with different illuminations each time - followed by a recreation of a small town, with alleys featuring a scene from two different classic fairy tales, with descriptions in German and English. Disney World this is not, but it is... More

I've visited Linz many times and been to the Grottenbahn with my friend and her children. It's a magical experience for children and I would highly recommend the visit

Grottenbahn is a nice place to take your children, but not only. It was rather enjoyable for us, young adults, as well. The visit consists of a little dragon-ride which takes you through the world of fairy-tales, with plenty of dwarves and some odd figurines. But if you go down the stairs, you will reach a little Hauptplatz, where you... More

If you read the reviews you’ll know that the attraction itself is relatively small comprising of a 5 min train journey akin to a very slow (and not scary) ghost train and a half size mockup of Linzt in the basement with a few scenes form Germanic folklore (Hansel and Grettle etc). On the face of it, is not something... More

I didn't really know what to expect but I thought I'd pay to get in and find out. I'm glad I did decide to go an is it was a charming and very unusual little place! First you go for a ride on a dragon train, it's short bit of track but it goes round thrice and cleverly using different... More

Well, just a short journey around the underground bahn, cute little figurines. Older kids may not enjoy much but young ones will love it

As two adults, we were expecting this to be pretty cheesy. And perhaps it was, but we also still enjoyed it. You take a tram around a mountain 3 times to see the gnomes, and then visit the downstairs area where there are exhibits and summaries of various fairy tales. It's quite cute. The children especially seemed to really be... More

We expected more after reading the reviews. Avoid this unless you have lot of spare time. It's not worth spending the money.
