A must for both - visitors and Linzer!

Take a fun ride with a historic tram up to the Linzer Pöstlingberg. You will have nice views during your ride and a great view over the city when you have reached the top.

You can catch this train from Hauptplatz and take a nice ride up the mountain. There is a great view from up there. My tip: Take a break at the top and visit the Konditorei Jindrak. Try a Linz Torte and sit out on the terrace and just enjoy the view!

Team up to here is a nice ride and the view at the top is very nice. It's a nice walk around and worth checking out.

I live up on this little hill and it is just lovely up there ;) Just go up there with the tram and walk a round-about:

My main reason to take a ride on Pöstlingbergbahn from Hauptplatz to the top of the village Pöstlingberg was to experience one of the world's steepest narrow-gauge railways and the steepest grade of any railways in Austria. Of course, for the serious amateur photographers the ride up to picturesque Pöstlingberg will also guarantee you panorama views of the Danube River,... More

Linz is a large city but, during the snow period, it seems smaller and even quite cozy. The tram service is brand new and is quite excellent. Buy a €4.40 day ticket. Travellers arriving by train should remember the tram lines running through Basement 2 of the Linz hbf and head towards the city centre, about 1 km away. If... More

After buying tickets at tourist information we boarded the special tram on Hauptplatz and travelled up the Postlingberg on a pretty dismal December day. When we got off at the top, Linz and the church were shrouded in fog but the circuit walk was still beautiful - especially because of the incredible frost. Worth the effort.

I caught the Postlingbergbahn on a day that was below freezing with a lot of cloud cover. So, while I did not get to see the view of Linz and the surrounding area, I did get to wander the winter wonderland of Postlingberg almost entirely alone. This made for some great photos... so quiet, so white. As an Australian (not... More

You will see a great view of Linz and Danube river up here. Very good walk or bike ride too. It's a must-go in Linz.

This is a classical tourist destination, but the feeling is pretty nice. We were here in the Autumn and the scenery was really nice. There is not a lot to do on the hill, but I would say that visiting and having a quick lunch can be really satisfying if you a re looking for a relaxed day off. At... More
