I went on this tram on a Sunday from the main square.It goes every 30 mins from 6am (M-Sun). I did buy a return ticket for 6 Euros, but there seemed no one around to check it- I could have gone for free (if I was dishonest). The trip up took about 20 minutes each way, with each stop clearly... More

This is a nice change when visiting cities. It's cheap, relaxing and the view from the mountain onto Linz is amazing. We took a walk in the forest following the indicated path, sat down and enjoyed the cooler air, beautiful light through the trees and the peace. Impressive way up, make sure to look around and take a seat in... More

A great view of Linz from here. There's a kids park, a church, and cafe at the top. Grab a beer, pick a table and enjoy the view and weather from above.

It's a nice attraction. It's not the most exciting ride I've been on, but it's relaxing and I enjoyed it.

This was a highlight of our stay in Linz especially as we had vouchers for the tram! The journey takes about 20 mins and gives a view of Linz's residential area. At the top you have the church , Grotte (troll park) and bar/restaurant. Take a look in the church and enjoy a wander around

We took the tram up to Postlingberg where we enjoyed great views from the lovely beer garden. The 15 minute trip up takes you through pleasant Linz suburbs, which I then enjoyed walking through. Good value.

There is Troll Museum below the church and also a very pleasant restaurant within easy walking distance from which there are also fabulous views.we have been there in all seasons and consider it a very good...

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.
