Linz

— 2 nights
Located on the Danube with a rolling green backdrop, Linz is a city equally rich in nature and culture.
Change things up with a short trip to Weg im Schloßpark in Scharding (about 1h 20 min away). There's much more to do: don't miss a visit to Pöstlingbergbahn, contemplate the long history of KZ-Gedenkstatte Mauthausen, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Mariendom, and see the interesting displays at Schlossmuseum Linz.

Upper Austria travel guide

4.5
Landmarks · Specialty Museums · Sacred & Religious Sites
Celebrate regional traditions and culture in Upper Austria, studded with castles, bike trails, and renowned museums. The region is quieter than many tourist centers in the country, and locals prefer it that way. This hidden gem may not have as many big-name attractions as other Austrian regions, but medieval villages, charming landscapes, modern galleries, and old-world cafes make visitors happy that they've wandered off the beaten path. For an Austrian adventure, stop by state's capital and artistic center, Linz, and enjoy other sights along the Danube River.
