Linz is a major stop on the Danube Trail and has some 200km of bicycle routes. Bikes are available for hire at Donau Touristik.

Car & Motorcycle

One-way systems, congested roads and pricey parking make public transport preferable to driving in central Linz, although a car is a definite plus if you’re keen to explore more of Upper Austria. There are some free car parks along Obere Donaulände. Major car hire firms have desks at the airport and Hauptbahnhof.

Public Transport

Linz AG ( has an extensive bus and tram network, but by early evening services become infrequent. Single tickets (€1.10), day passes (€4.40) and weekly passes (€13.10) are available from pavement dispensers, Tabakladen (tobacconist) shops and the Hauptbahnhof. Drivers don’t sell tickets – buy and validate your tickets before you board.
