Pöstlingberg tram

Linz, Oberösterreich, Österreich

Enjoy a ride with the Pöstlingberg tram.

For over a hundred years the Pöstlingberg tram has been impressing guests from all over the world with its extraordinary and idyllic course. With the start of the operation of the new Pöstlingberg tram a direct connection has been established between the Main Square and Pöstlingberg.

Climb aboard and enjoy a trip to the landmark mountain of Linz. The low-floor technology of the new wagons means that you can use the Pöstlingberg tram comfortably. Excursions with revitalized old wagons are offered, depending on availability, for nostalgia fans. An impressive view of Linz and the Grotto Railway with its fairy-tale word and the realm of the dwarves awaits you at the end of the trip.

With a track length of 4.14. km, the Pöstlingberg railway covers a difference in elevation of 255 meters in 20 minutes. The track gauge has been adapted from 1,000 mm to 900 mm. This means that the railway has been easily integrated into the public transportation network Linz AG Linien and now travels to the Main Square.
