It is not a coincidence that Linz is known as Upper Austria's capital of culture and art. On this private walking tour, you can choose between a guided visit of the Castle Museum with the most educational exhibitions, of the baroque highlight of Linz (the old cathedral) or of the largest church in Austria (the new cathedral). During the different walking tours, you will also discover some other historically significant and architecturally interesting buildings of the city. All three tour options start in the heart of the old town, the Hauptplatz square.
The 2-hours tour starts with a relaxed walk through the narrow Hofgasse street featuring lovely pastel. There, you will have a brief introduction into the history of Linz Castle, which is a former imperial castle dating back to the late 8th-century, and the Schlossmuseum (Castle Museum), which opened in the 1960s. Inside the Castle Museum, you will tour the permanent exhibitions on the artistic and cultural history of Upper Austria from the Neolithic Age up to the 20th-century. A museum-licensed private guide will make sure that you’re having the best time at the museum by providing the most interesting commentary.
Choose the 3-hours tour to visit the old cathedral. You will walk through Linz’s main square to see a 17th-century Baroque church featuring two towers topped with onion domes. Inside, you will see lavish interiors, with pink marble columns, elaborately detailed wooden pulpit and antique organ. You will also marvel at the high altar decorated with marble statues and a fabulous painting of Saint Aloysius.
During the 4-hours option you will see more of Linz's old town, with the iconic main square, Hauptplatz, with the landmarks such as the old town hall, the white marble Holy Trinity Column and the Neptune Fountain. You will also pass by the impressive government building Landhaus, next to the Minoritenkirche church. Finally, you will reach the new cathedral, which is the largest church in Austria with 20,000 seats. With its monolithic neo-gothic architecture and exquisite stained glass windows, this is one of Linz’s most important landmarks.
