“Great City Center”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

The Hauptplatz is a pretty little area with lots of flowers, a ton of little cafes, and a lot of transportation options (including the tram up to Postlingberg). It's definitely worth coming to take pictures even if you don't plan on doing anything else.

“Little disappointment”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

Comparing with other squares which I have already visited it is alittle disappointment. It is not a good idea to let trams and cars go through it looks more like a busy street. The information center is good they give you a map of the city. And it lays so close to the main city points.

“Nice old square”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

A large traditional old city square, typical in Europe, only that this one is very large, with lots of beautiful Gothic and Baroque Churches, nice alleys around. Can reach by trams No 1,2 or 3 from the main train station. Can also take tram No 50 to Postlingberg.

“city center!”
Reviewed 29 January 2014

I love Linz, and hauptplatz is the square right near the river side. in the colder months there isn't much to do there, besides bars/restaurants, but as it warms up there is fabulous gelato, beautiful flowers, and street vendors. linz is the best!

“Nice Christmas Market”
Reviewed 11 January 2014

This town square was a beautiful Christmas Market during the holiday season. The millions of lights with hot spiced wine and the aroma of the local foods cooking was just what we imagined. There were nice crafts, and locals enjoying the holiday season. Close to the river with the Viking River Boat Cruises dock. It is magical at Christmas!
