The only place of interest in Linz City! Although it has a mixed history because during 1939 and 1945 it was named after Adolf Hitler!

Wonderful town square, set up with Christmas markets. All sorts of booths, from food to hand crafted items. A must see area during the winter months. Lots to see, smell and hear.

At the moment, the area is full of Christmas market stands selling all sorts! Plenty of food and drink as well, so a really nice experience. Bought quite a few unusual items for stockings...

As far as we know the ships dock close to the Hauptplatz. It is a few minutes walk from the docking area to the Hauptplatz. Leave the ship and turn right - you should see the Hauptplatz after a short walk.
