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

It is nice trip up to the hill. If the weather is nice you can probably also have nice views, but we were not so lucky.

Nice ride through a nice scenery. Excellent view over the city Linz at the top. Nice (short) walk possible at the top. About half way there is also a zoo to visit. If you would like to have a nice trip up the hill, take this little train.

After the Höchenhaus you should take the old tram up to the mountain. You will get a nice view, and have a walk around. Grottenbahn is also located at the end stop of the Pöstlingbergbahn, and it's great for kids. You will also find a church on the top.

This is a great way to spend a couple of hours and to get a view of the city. You have to buy your tickets in the Hauptplatz and then go to the centre of the square to catch the little tram. The route is across the bridge over the Danube and then after a few city streets, a long... More
