We took Tram 50 from the town square across the bridge up to the top where the church is. Being winter it was snowy and very cold. There are some nice views of the city and an old church. Many locals were tobogganing down the slope and there are some nice areas to park up or picnic. A return ticket... More

When I was a child (over 40 years ago) my father would take my sister and myself on this ride and after all these years ...the Pöstling Berg Bahn still exist...now it leaves also from the center of Linz which makes it very convenient (one sees the center of the City since the tram goes right thru the mostly pedestrian...

Leaves from the main square every 30 minutes and is a very scenic way to see the north part of the city up to the Postlingberg.

When is a fog, you don't see anything. But other times is probably good trip. Only the tram rides quite long and is full of people.

The best view at linz! Also if you had children with you they can take the train to go a trip around the walls in the "dwarves world" and they can see also wild deers inside!!

Take this trolley from the Hauptplatz (center square of Linz) up to the Poestlingberg -- a lovely ride. On top of the Poestlingberg is a beautiful church, a Grottenbahn for children and a couple of really good restaurants. Walk back down or take the trolley back down.

A lovely way to spend a few hours. The trams run every half an hour and you can buy tickets in the Tourist information office in the main square...don't forget to validate the tickets in the machine at the tram stop before travelling. The view from the top are worth the trip, and lunch at the little cafe was very... More
