Full description

Take an informative and personal tour of the charming Old Town of Linz. Explore the most historically relevant and architecturally interesting buildings with your guide as you learn about this fascinating place. Start your tour at the Baroque highlight of Linz’s city center - the Old Cathedral. See this monumental 17th-century church with its two onion dome towers. Step inside to admire its lavish interiors, with an elaborately detailed wooden pulpit and high altar decorated with marble statues and a fabulous painting of Saint Aloysius. Next, visit the iconic Main Square, or Hauptplatz. Stroll among the stylish white and pastel buildings and you'll see the Old Town Hall, the Feichtinger House with its carillon, the Kirchmayr House, and the Schmidberger House. Spot the white marble Holy Trinity Column right in the center of the bustling town square. Explore the relaxing Castle Park with its stunning views of the Danube River, and then head to the Landhaus, a magnificent 16th-century Renaissance building. End your walking tour on the site of Austria’s largest church, the monolithic neo-Gothic New Cathedral. Choose the 3-hour tour option if you'd like to step inside the New Cathedral, also known as Mariendom, where you can marvel at the gorgeous interior design. Admire the fantastic altar, crypts, hand carved wood details, and many exquisite stained glass windows that can be studied for hours. Take a walk through Bauernberg Park to see its monuments. Opt for the 4-hour tour option, and you'll also visit the Nordico Stadtmuseum, which is only a few steps away from the Old Cathedral. Discover varied temporary exhibitions on the history and culture of Linz, including old collections of photographs, antique pieces of furniture, art referencing the city, and other interesting exhibits. Embark on the full 6-hour tour to visit the Upper Austrian Provincial Museum located right inside Linz Castle. Gain a deeper understanding of how Linz, once primarily an industrial center, became a pioneer in culture, art, and technology. See the museum’s top attraction, the permanent exhibitions on the artistic and cultural history of Upper Austria from the Neolithic Age up to the 20th-century.
