First: take the tram to get there. Not as good as before it was modernised but still worth it for the journey. Even it you're not religious, the church is beautiful and worth seeing. On clear days, the views over Linz are magical.

I have known about this tram system for 20 years and finally made the trip 2 weeks ago! The line has been modernised and regauged to 900mm so the trams can run on the rest of the Linz tram system! The trip begins at Hauptplatz, the main city square in Linz. The journey starts by crossing the Danube, it then... More

We chose to drive up instead of ride up because of time constraints but still glad we did! The view from the top is GREAT!!!

We very much enjoyed our trip to Postlingberg on the Postlingbergbahn! You can catch the tram in the Hauptplatz. Tickets can be bought on the platform via a machine (with options in several languages) that takes cash or credit card. Postlingberg itself is definitely worth the visit for the breathtaking views, a beautiful church, and plenty of room to walk... More

We took the tram from the center of town up to the top of the hill. The tram is fun in itself. The view is wonderful and the church is well worth visiting.

From the Hauptplatz (main square) in Linz a historic-type tramway finds all the way up to the must-see Pöstlingberg in around 25 minutes. Although it might sometimes be a bit crowded and it is also not too cheap the views of and over Linz are worth each cent in my eyes. A fascinating way of experiencing the Pöstlingberg is also...

Should definitely go there if you ever visit Linz. Take any tram from main train station of Linz to hauptplatz, then take the tram No 50 at its terminal at Hauptplatz which takes you to the other terminal Postlingberg in a hilltop on the other side of Donau. The No 50 terminal is just next to the tram stop of... More

We decided to visit Pöstlingberg with a large group on a sunny afternoon. The tram trip in itself was not much to write home about but the view on top made it worthwhile. There were surprisingly many people waiting for at Linz Hauptplatz which resulted in the tram being pretty crammed. I had to stand the whole way up which... More

We loved this little tram ride that takes you to a viewpoint overlooking Linz. We went on a bright but slightly misty December morning to take in the extensive views over the town and Danube valley, then had a quick look round the church. There isn't a great deal else to do but it was worth it for the views... More
