Very cute Grotto train pulled by a dragon through a cave full of dwarfs and many other characters from the old fairy tales.

A fairy tale world
Jun 2018 • Solo
The amusement park takes you back into a fairy tale world of dwarfs and gnomes. The highlight of the attraction is a small train with a dragon-head at the engine. The train takes you through a rather dark tunnel along which are scenes from various fairytales and mood lighting at some places.

Outside, you have a replica old-town market. The spokes radiating from the central market house scenes from popular fairy tales like the red riding hood, Rapunzel, snow-white, sleeping beauty and the likes.

Kids will absolutely love this attraction and the grown ups will enjoy it as well.

Adults enjoy this little kiddie ride as much as the children. Board a little train for multiple trips through the land of gnomes. The lighting changes on each trip to highlight different scenes as the gnomes go about their daily business. After the ride, there is a path through a miniature village with fairy tale tableaux. It is all very charming, and an unexpected treat at the top of the mountain.

Simply wonderful!

I love Disney but sometimes there can be...eh, too much Disney, right?
Well, this 1906 underground grotto train pulled by a dragon is refreshingly non-Disney. The small train takes you past settings with dwarves and woodland scenes before you get off and descend into a fairy-tale world below. In the centre, the medieval main square of Linz, the Hauptplatz, has been recreated and in the little side streets you can see impressions of the most important Grimm fairy-tales. The exit takes you past an open area with deer and stags grazing outside small stables. It's all absolutely delightful!

Not Just For Children
Aug 2018 • Couples
While visiting Postlingbergbahn, we saw many people with children heading off in one direction. We decided to follow them as we were not sure where they were headed.
Grottenbahn! As we didn't have children with us, we were unsure whether we should pay the entrance fee and go inside. Encouraged by the people working in the gift shop/ticket office, we went on the ride. It was delightful! We climbed aboard the flaming dragon and off we went. Scenes of dwarves and then recreations of fairy tales. Fun for people of all ages. It is not Disney World but more of an old world, cute adventure.

Was an enjoyable ride. Reminded me of Disneyland's It's a A Wonderful Wold ride. This Grottenbahn was smaller in length.

Place for small children
Aug 2018 • Family
This little train through the caves of Linz is good for small children. It also is a nice historical attraction that children will not get bored of. The fairy tales are nice presented and the small recreated center of Linz is beautiful for pictures. Although for children older than 14-15 is it not a must an maybe a little bit boring.

It was nice

This place is nice, but I think for small kids. My 11 y.o. son was too old for such fairy tales place. The room full of fairy tales and made like a small town is nice, we liked it...but really...we are too old for such place.

Our 2 years old daughter had the most fantastic hour of her life at Grottenbahn, she was fascinated by the dwarfs and the tale world! Older kids and their parents enjoyed as well :-)

Well worth paying for even as an adult.

My wife and I went in. At first we thought it was a bit daft going without children but it was good fun. We went on the dragon train and looked at all the dwarfs wetc as we went around twice. Then into the next bit which was very good with picures of all our favourite fairy tales. Good value.
