Linz is one of those cities whose attractions generally go unnoticed by its residents, and which is not usually visited by tourists, however it is a hidden gem and we dedicate a weekend to learn more about this treasure full of culture, fun and natural charms.
One of the great things about Linz is that it is very close to Salzburg, it is very easy to have a weekend getaway with friends or family, beside it can be access by car or train. We started our tour traveling by train that took approx. 1.5 hours.
Inside the museum you will find several exhibitions of natural, cultural, and even technological art. It brings you back to the Middle Ages and it shows all the advances that man has made in different aspects of the life, you can’t help but feel nostalgic when you see the cars you used to see on the street when you were little or even the phones that some of us managed to use in our grandmother’s house.
Through videos, audios and mannequins represented in real size they show the life of upper Austria from its beginnings, its clothing and traditions and allow you to immerse yourself in the history of the War and give a glimpse of what it was in the past the life of the Austrians and how it differs from the current life.
The tour according to your interests lasts approximately 2 hours and, in this time, you travel to the past, enjoy the architecture and art that make this a priceless visit.
The day after we decided to start our tour in a very natural way, enjoying one of the most interesting attractions of the city “Pöstlinbergbahn”. You are heading towards this mountain with a train that takes you from the city centre, this train is not like the others that run in the city, it is an old style, and it makes you kind of nostalgic. this train goes to this high point in Linz in just 20 minutes.
During the tour you pass by a zoo which you can visit but in our case, we decided to go to the last stop.
On this point you can walk around enjoying the view it offers or you can go to the Grottenbahn.
Grottenbahn is as if you entered a fairy tale, where during the tour you find dragons, witches and all the magic of children’s stories even if you are an adult, it is a tour that you enjoy and that brings you back to the imagination of your childhood.
The fresh air, the animals that you meet along the way and the abundant nature that are part of this place make your tour an unforgettable one.
