Vacation in Linz

Location and orientation

The state capital by the river

Linz is the capital of the Austrian province of Upper Austria. It is the third largest city in Austria and is divided into two large parts: Linz City and Urfahr. The border is represented by the Danube, which is integrated very vividly into the urban events. A good 200,000 people live in Linz.

On foot or with the "Bim" through the city

Linz is easy to reach by train, bus, air and motorway. Within the city it is advisable to rent a central holiday apartment in Linz and explore the city by public transport. The tram is called "Bim" and takes you to all important places of the city.

Travelers and Activities

Linz for families

Linz is a city worth seeing for the whole family! The Linzer Tiergarten am Pöstlingberg inspires young and old, a boat trip on the Danube as well as a walk on the 'Landstraße' - here we mean a busy little street in the city centre! - also offers something for everyone. The parents can enjoy a glass of Upper Austrian wine on the terrace of the Fewo in Linz in the evening, while the children are already dreaming of the experiences of the day.

Linz for shoppers

Locals and tourists love to stroll along the so-called country road and admire the offers of the numerous shops. A trip to the nearby "Plus City" is ideal for a rainy day: the third largest shopping centre in Upper Austria offers more than 220 shops and restaurants.

Top 3 travel tips

1. The Pöstlingberg

One of the landmarks of Linz is the Pöstlingberg. You can reach the top either on foot, by car or by the Pöstlingbergbahn. You can walk upstairs and visit the Linz zoo. A viewing platform makes it possible to see the entire surroundings from above. A special highlight is to admire the numerous lights of the city in the evening.

2. The old town of Linz

The old town of Linz lies directly on the Danube, below the Schlossberg. It is popular for going out because it offers many different restaurants. Climbing the Schlossberg is also worth it: the view over the city is excellent and the green open spaces offer recreation close to nature in the middle of the city.

3. The Linzer Landstraße

The country road begins at the Goethe junction near the railway station and ends at the main square. Only the "Bim" runs along this street and the wide footpaths invite you to take a stroll. Numerous small and large shops, cafés and restaurants are the perfect base for a relaxing shopping day. In the evening you can store your shopping in your apartment and enjoy a relaxing evening in Linz.

4 The Linz Museums

But Linz also has a lot to offer culturally interested tourists! The Schlossmuseum on the Schlossberg offers changing exhibitions. The "Lentos" on the Danube houses an art exhibition and on the opposite side of the river lies the "Ars Electronica Center", which is of interest to young and old alike: there, you can try out, research and discover many things on your own in the technical field. An Asuflug from your vacation rental in Linz - how about it?

5. The Linzer Torte

There are also some good addresses for sweet toothers in Linz. The best known is the Linzertorte, a traditional cake similar to shortcrust pastry with lots of currant jam, which by the way is called "Ribiselmarmelade" by the Upper Austrians, and the classic grid pattern on top. It is best to store a stock of them in your chalet in Linz so that you will always remember them!
