Came here as part of our cruise tour. This is an old-world charm square with a lot going on. For example the day we were there (not sure if they do this all days) there was a nice market in the middle of the square....More

I always enjoy walking up the Donau from the Arcotel Nike to Hauptplatz and then the Alstadt. Linz is a pleasant stop. Take advantage of one of the many cafes and relax.

While Linz does not have a very large historic city center, the Hauptplatz was enjoyable to visit. Very reminiscent of many other European cities with the large central square. Pretty city square dotted with restaurants and multiple gelato shops

The old-world charm is still there in this place which is probably THE happening place in town. Very enjoyable.

As the trams trundle by it is a lovely spot to soak up the atmosphere of this renaissance city a quiet bustle about it.

This historic plaza located near the Danube River is the location of one of their holiday markets. Located within easy walking distance from river cruise ship docks. Surrounded by interesting shops and cafes. Also a good meeting point for city walking tours.

There are lots of stores and places to eat in this plaza. You can sit and catch some rays. Also a variety of stores along here. It’s a good place to catch a tram if you want to explore the area.

Hi Elena, Not sure about Postlingberg, but Linz you could do in two days: the first to see the sights, and the second to go back to that chocolate shop you wanted to go to but didn’t think it was worth it but now you wish... More

As far as we know the ships dock close to the Hauptplatz. It is a few minutes walk from the docking area to the Hauptplatz. Leave the ship and turn right - you should see the Hauptplatz after a short walk.
