A short nice trip weather permitted
Jul 2020 • Solo
A short trip uphill with a wonderful view of Linz depending on weather.

Confusing pricing (not clear if the ticket is to Hauptplatz or to Urfahr).To be bought and validated before the journey.
Long intervals even on weekends.

Great to do
Nov 2019
This is absolutely worth the money and one of the highlights of Linz. Not only is the trip up special. But you also get great views from up there and with a church and 2 restaurants you can eat and drink something there.

Amazing trip up to the hill
Dec 2019
We caught the train from the Hauptplatz and went directly to the top of the hill in Pöstlingberg. A beautiful place to view Linz from above and to take pictures of the Danube and the surroundings. There is a magnificent church but the best place esp for the kids is the Grotterbahn.

Excellent experience
Dec 2019
If you want to explore Linz, you have to start with the Postlingbergbahn. On Saturday it was a lot of visitors and the train was 120% full. The ride with this train is an excellent experience. And the view on the top ot the hill is great.

What to do on a Monday in linz
Dec 2019 • Couples
Very nice tram ride up the hill. Excellent view of Linz and surrounding areas. Most places of interest seem to be closed on a Monday in Linz so this is a nice way to spend an hour or two. Easy to pick up from the main square as it has its own platform. We found snow at the top of the hill which made for a pretty view of the church.

Going to the top
Nov 2019 • Solo
I’m case you want to go to Pöstlingberg this is the way you should go up. The hill is too steep for walking. Price is 6.40 eur both ways. 3.90 eur one way. I took it up and down enjoyed a walk with Linz views. Take the funicular from first stop Hauptplatz. Otherwise, it might be too full to enter in other stops.

Great Views of Linz
Oct 2019
This tram up the hill to Postlingbergbahn is a brilliant ride and the views at the top are amazing. Buy your ticket at the Tourist Information Bureau but remember to scan it at the tram stop before you board. The church is very welcoming and beautiful. The Grottenbahn is worth a visit whatever your age.

Fantastic, cheap and convenient

We boarded at the main square and this is a cheap way to get up the hill. It was very crowded with lots of locals using it but fast and efficient.

When un Linz a trip on the tram to Pöstlingberg. The tram ride is often crowded with residents and tourists. The walks around the top is relatively flat and has good views of the area. Three restaurants and lot of photo opportunities

Great little trip up the hill in Linz
Aug 2019
Buy the tickets in the tourist information on the main square, then get the train up. Visit the Grottenbahn whilst you are there - not just for kids!
