Great Views

The tram ride to Postlingberg (the bahn) is a great way to see the city from above. The tram is supposed to be the steepest around. The views from the village were great.

Fairly interesting ride to and from - breaks down on arrival. Kind of like a zoo in Des Moines or maybe Bridgeport, CT from the 1970s. You must take the kiddie train ride. It goes around the same circular track with different lighting, driven by a costumed period piece type person. The train deposits you in a miniature version of... More

This is a cog railway that leads to the hills over Linz. There is a sweet forest path at the top, and spectacular views of Linz and the Danube. On the way up, you can stop at the Linz Zoo, or go to the top for the Grottenbahn, both great for kids.

Ride with the vintage looking tram to the place and walk around the park and see deers. There is a great activity playground for kids. there is also an excellent restaurant with the view to the city and few cafes-beer garden. Visit a small but beautiful church.

The tram leaves from the main square ever 30 minutes and takes you to the top of the mountain overlooking Linz in 20 minutes. The tram is one of the steepest traction based trams in the world. The ride up is scenic and the 360 degree views from the top are pretty epic. There are also a couple of restaurants... More

Wow, what a beautiful view of Linz! only a short tram ride but worth the trip for the view. The church itself is also quite lovely in its own right.

This tram goes from the Main Square on the old city side of the river (or can be caught from the the other side - there are 2 stops before it leaves the city). It goes every 30 minutes and the trip will last about 20 minutes as it climbs steeply through the suburbs to emerge at the top of... More

This was lovely. Scenery on the way good, unlike what previous commentor said, interesting ride up steep hill. Pretty at the top with good views of the city. It was snowing when we went, and many locals had taken kids with sledges to sledge in the park. I wish we'd had one too, it looked great fun. Well worth a... More

Very vintage tram that apparently takes the steepest route of any tram in Europe. Not much in the way of scenery during the journey...just houses. At the top there is a small church and some pretty good views of Linz...you will in particular see the industrialism of the city with the chemical works etc. If you are visiting Linz it's... More
