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.

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
