Lovely square to spend time

A stones throw from the Danube, this square is a quiet and peaceful spot to have a coffee and watch the world go by, lovely architecture too.

The Hauptplatz in itself may or may not be your cup of tea. Certainly there is shopping and dining opportunities there. But is also the gateway to all kinds of interesting sights, many churches and older parts of town, well within walking distance. And it has seem interesting views, particularly down Landstrasse which takes you to the main shopping area... More

A very nice place to hang around, especially in summer. Many Shops around and some Weekends there are fleemarkets or others.

We were in Linz on a Sunday and most of the shops were closed. There were a few open in the Hauptplatz but not all of them. We caught the 50 Tram up to Pöstlingberg which is worth doing.

We were there on a Sunday, so it wasn't crowded. The flea market had turned into a Christmas market with a large Christmas tree and had an interesting collection of handicrafts, and the popular "punsch" beverage. A great central location from which to explore the Danube and the city. The tram line runs through it.

This main square in the city of Linz has lovely outdoor cafes and restaurants; lanes go off the square to beautiful and delicious restaurants. Great people-watching place!

We had great time there. There was live music, beer and good food around this place. It is worth visiting and very well connected by tram
