Augustiner Chorherrenstift St. Florian

Through the times and centuries, St. Florian is a place with a perfect harmony between faith, art and music. Just a few minutes from the city of Linz, you are here in between the nature. Be our guest, enjoy the lovely and peaceful guest-rooms. Use the time for a conversation with canons, go on a hike, or simply relax and let the daily routine behind you. The Canons Regular of St. Augustine's are looking forward to seeing you and wish you a pleasant and blessed stay in St. Florian!

While on a concert tour, I thoroughly enjoyed the tour of this wonderful abbey. In fact, in some respects, this is more impressive and with a more personable tour than at Melk. If you have an interest in Romantic period symphonic music, then the very strong Bruckner connection is quite special. Our guide was absolutely outstanding, too.

Mariendom Linz

Reviewed By Andi M - York, United Kingdom

We were in Linz for the Day on a guided tour in the medieval area and this church kept beckoning me as its so high above the houses. Its about 10-15 mins walk from teh town square which is nice as there are plenty of shops and cafes on route.

The Cathedral is undergoing significant renovations and so there were no seats in it and we could not get to the alter. Having said that the sheer scale of the place is what grabs you - the church is Gothic in style so there are beautiful stained glass windows and large columns throughout the church to support the roof that towers overhead
Building started in 1862 and finished in 1924. There were signs for tours. but when i went there was only a handful of tourists and the builders in the space so so it seemed so vast - hard to imaging 20,000 people in it and what that must sound like in a service
Well worth a visit if you are in Linz

Hauptplatz

Reviewed By Larry C

One of Austria's largest enclosed squares is an excellent starting point for your exploration of Linz. Before leaving, check out the Holy Trinity Column completed in 1723 to commemorate the town’s deliverance from war, fire and plague.
All three tram lines pass through the Hauptplatz. It is also the starting point for the tram which travels up to Postlingberg (during summer vintage tram cars are in service).

Postlingbergkirche Wallfahrtsbasilika Sieben Schmerzen Maria

Reviewed By unescotravelbug - Wooster, Ohio

Pöstlingbergkirche is a pilgrimage church perched on top of Pöstlingberg overlooking River Danube Linz’s Altstadt and beyond. It can be seen from Danube River, Linzer Schloss and from Hauptplazt; hence it is considered the icon of the Linz.This 18th century church dedicated to the Seven Sorrows of the Virgin Mary is relatively small. The rich decorations of its Rococo style interior and the Terrace overlooking Linz and Danube make Pöstlingbergkirche a popular church to hold the weddings. The chancel is composed of a gilded high altar with Pietà, rosy colored marble colonnettes and curved recess wall. On the left of the nave is the ornate black and gold pulpit with gilded statues of saint and angels. Around the vaulted ceiling and walls are decorated with stucco works and fresco paintings.Two large paintings of Virgin Mary and Child decorated both side of the nave. On the back of the nave is a small organ loft. Outside of the church is a statue of St. John of Nepomuk. The Terrace below the church is an excellent place for the Panorama views of the Linz.
This is a must visit attraction in Linz. To get there take Pöstlingbergbahn from Hauptplatz to the last stop. It runs every 30 min. on the hour on the weekdays and every 15 minutes between 10.00 a.m. and 17.00 a.m. on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays. If you have a day, I recommend you buy a combined 24 hours day ticket from the Tourist Information Office (includes a brochure for the rider) or from the self-help machine by its platform at the Hauptplatz. For the cost of € 9.40 this combined day ticket will allow you one round trip ride on Pöstlingbergbahn (€6.20 if just buy this ticket ) and a 24 hours day ticket (€4.40 if just buy this day ticket) for unlimited rides on the City's entire trams and buses system.
