A nice air-conditioned ride to see the Postlingbergbahn Pilgrimage Church and and have a meal at Postlingberg Schlossl on the patio, dining room or historic cocktail lounge.

We visited here recently. You can get the straunbann from Hauptplatz for 6.60 each and you get a magnificent view of the city. There are also two lovely restaurants up here where you can get some nice food.

Nice tram ride through linz and up the hill. View at the top marvellous of the city and the hills surrounding! The Church is typical catholic but pretty. We had a drink on the terrace cafe with a spectacular view.

The tram to the site climbs on to the hill in front of Linz city center where you can have a lovely walk and picnic even on a hot summer day
