We very much enjoyed our trip to Postlingberg on the Postlingbergbahn! You can catch the tram in the Hauptplatz. Tickets can be bought on the platform via a machine (with options in several languages) that takes cash or credit card. Postlingberg itself is definitely worth the visit for the breathtaking views, a beautiful church, and plenty of room to walk around.

We took the tram from the center of town up to the top of the hill. The tram is fun in itself. The view is wonderful and the church is well worth visiting.

From the Hauptplatz (main square) in Linz a historic-type tramway finds all the way up to the must-see Pöstlingberg in around 25 minutes. Although it might sometimes be a bit crowded and it is also not too cheap the views of and over Linz are worth each cent in my eyes. A fascinating way of experiencing the Pöstlingberg is also to go up with the tramway and to walk down the hill after having visited the Pöstlingbergkirche (Church) and the panoramic terrace. Recommended to every Linz-Visitor!

Should definitely go there if you ever visit Linz. Take any tram from main train station of Linz to hauptplatz, then take the tram No 50 at its terminal at Hauptplatz which takes you to the other terminal Postlingberg in a hilltop on the other side of Donau. The No 50 terminal is just next to the tram stop of Hauptplatz. There are restaurants, a church, and a outlook platform with telescope, with extraordinary wide view of Donau river and Linz.
