“Only if you happen to be in Linz”
Review of Hauptplatz

Hauptplatz
Ranked #2 of 81 things to do in Linz
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Linz is not a city I would go out of way to visit. If you happen to be traveling down Danube or driving through, I would go see it. The main square isn't the greatest although it does have little outdoor Easter markets if you happen to go in April. Linz tort is also apprently a highlight, but it was just a good tort, not life changing.
If you are Linz, get your feet over to the Meriendom gothic church (spire is visible from the city center.

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.

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.

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.

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!
