Linz spreads out beneath you atop Pöstlingberg (537m), which affords bird’s-eye views over the city and the snaking Danube. It’s a precipitous 30-minute ride aboard the narrow-gauge Pöstlingbergbahn from the Hauptplatz. This gondola features in the Guinness Book of Records as the world’s steepest mountain railway – quite some feat for such a low-lying city!

At the summit is the turn-of-the-century Grottenbahn , where families – and anyone who loves a bit of cult kitsch – can board the dragon train to trundle past gnomes, glittering stalactites and scenes from Grimms’ fairy tales.
