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

Tram leaves from the main square. View from top is great in reasonable weather. The Grottenbahn experience is the kind that will make you want to come again and again.

Beeing in Linz you have to visit the Postlingberg to get a great overview of this industrial town. And of course the best way to get there is with the Postlingbergbahn. A tram going up this quite step mountain slowly reaching the top. Scenic and relaxing. Just beautiful

You can take a tram from the Hauptplatz up to Pöstlingberg (there is also an old style one) which will give fantastic views of the city, there is also a ghost train which is very good for children, and a good restaurant to eat and drink in. You can also have a wander around and see the fallow deer if... More

It's good option but don't expect a lot. It's the steepest tram in the world but doesn't have much options to do once you reach at the top.

Near to the bridge over the Danube, the Postlingbergbahn is worth the price and provides an interesting journey. The main benefit on reaching the top is the church and views. There is also a restaurant. The tram is used by locals and tourists, and can get crowded

we were expecting a very steep ride, though it is a normal tram going up and it is not that steep at all, but still it is fun and gives some great views.
