The landmark of Linz is the Postlingberg. Though you can go by foot, the better way is travelling with the Bergbahn from the Hauptplatz. Up there you have a splendid view over Linz, tha Danube and surroundings.

Bring your walking sticks if you got them. If not, take your time to hike up the hill to oversee Linz. It is a lovely spot! Or you can grab the train that goes there or use it to go down after your long walk.

A lovely ride and magnificent views in any weather when you take a ride on the Postlingbergbahn. At the top you can walk the woodlands as well and its so peaceful and quiet and yet only minutes from the city centre.
