The tram journey is certainly worth the effort. The ride was very pleasant, with beautiful views when the tram climbed to the top of the hill. The paranormal view of Linz was awesome. I think this is a must visit place in Linz if one has a little time to spare.

The trip up Postingberg is short, thus offers a nice quick escape from the city. The view at the top is very nice. Added charms to be had if you can take the old fashioned wagons tram; just keep in mind that these are not wheelchair accessible.

You can see the whole Linz there. A great place for those who love a good view. Also, there are two nice cafe/restaurants there for those who want to sit and drink a refreshment.

My husband loves public transit in new cities and the treasures we find by taking it. This special tram goes up a hill to spectacular views. There is a beautiful church, amazing overlooks, and a great restaurant we enjoyed a drink and snack in. Don't miss this. Tickets are available in the visitors center.

The special tram leaves from the main square, opposite the tourist information office. You can get a ticket which covers the trip up and down and also includes all other public transport for 24 hours, which was good value and worth having if you are only spending an overnight in Linz en route to Vienna or Salzburg. The views from... More

This was an unexpected treat and very easy to do. A ticket is about 6€ round trip. You can buy tickets at the tourist office in the town square across from the tram stop. The ride up takes about 20 minutes and passes through several neighborhoods, with the homes getting larger and lovelier as you ascend. At the top, which... More

From the main square of Linz for just a few euros you can catch the #50 tram that takes you across the Danube and up the hill overlooking the city. As you pass through the Linz suburbs you see both historic and ultra modern dwellings, along with a university. When you reach the end of the line you are rewarded... More

You can get a 24h ticket that includes all of Linz transit for under 10 euros. Nice ride up, more scenic in the old streetcars.

The ride on this tram really evokes memories. Memories on the past times when we were not in such a hurry as nowadays. It starts from Hauptplatz, crosses Danube and climbs through the woods like in some old German expressionist movie. And when you exit, wonderful vista of the Danube and city of Linz opens, showing you the pulse of... More
