Beautiful view

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

The Bahn is an incredibly convenient way to reach the Pöstlingberg with great sights of Linz. The ride along the Bahn is perhaps just as thrilling to see scenery and houses of the locals.

Catch this tram in Hauptplatz & aim to get a seat for the best views. Do this both ways on the opposite side. Tickets are available for purchase at the Information centre as well as at the Haltstelle. Look for the machine facing the Information Centre. Be sure to activate your ticket before getting on the tram. It's a long... More

The tram to Postlingberg runs from the central square. It's a pity that the normal day tickets for the Linz tramway cannot be used on this line. It is a very pretty run that takes about 20-25 minutes to get to the top. Once their you can visit the church enjoy the views over the city or visit the Grottenbahn... More

Quaint tram/train, supposedly one of steepest streetcar lines in world to get there. Good views from the top, but highlights how much of an industrial city Linz is when you see the smog & chimneys. Kids world & train (Grottenbahn) also up there but not visited. If you like catholic churches you will also be happy. Very kitschy souvenir stall,... More

Romantic and popular restaurant on top of the Postlingberg, accessible by the Postlingbergbahn. The adjacent Grottenbahn is worth a visit, for children and adults, with its fairy-tale exhibitions.
