Review of Hauptplatz

Hauptplatz
Ranked #2 of 76 things to do in Linz
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 2, 2014 via mobile

Linz's main city square contains many shops and cafés that allow you to experience a taste of the city. However, as might be expected, the square is nothing special when compared to any larger city's plaza.

The square is in Linz city centre, its right in the heart of Linz. Trams pass through on all 3 of Linz tram routes and it's also the start of the scenic Postlingbergbahn tram route to Postlingberg. There are lots of lovely historic church only a few minutes walk from here! The best place to east is Riva restaurant, the same name as the iconic Lada Riva! All in all well worth a visit!

The square offered nothing special... there are places to eat and grab an ice cream but other than that there isn't much to it.

Linz is not a city I would go out of way to visit. If you happen to be traveling down Danube or driving through, I would go see it. The main square isn't the greatest although it does have little outdoor Easter markets if you happen to go in April. Linz tort is also apprently a highlight, but it was just a good tort, not life changing.
If you are Linz, get your feet over to the Meriendom gothic church (spire is visible from the city center.

The Hauptplatz is a pretty little area with lots of flowers, a ton of little cafes, and a lot of transportation options (including the tram up to Postlingberg). It's definitely worth coming to take pictures even if you don't plan on doing anything else.
