Grottenbahn - Fairytale World at Pöstlingberg

Linz, Oberösterreich, Österreich

Dwarf fun in the Grottenbahn, the fairy tale world for young and old

Established in 1906, the Grottenbahn continues to delight its large and small visitors.

The realm of the dwarves is located in a former fortification tower. The dragon Lenzibald takes the visitor right into the middle of the grotto to the lovingly designed groups of dwarfs and scenes from famous fairy tales.

Then stroll through Linz's main square at the turn of the century in miniature under a romantic starry sky and admire the many fairy tale groups in the side streets.


Let yourself be carried away into the magical atmosphere of this fairytale world on the Pöstlingberg in Linz.
