Join this private walking tour of the charming old town of Linz. You will explore the most historically relevant and architecturally interesting buildings. There is an incredible amount of history and culture to discover in Linz, so let your private guide lead you on an adventure.
All tour options will have the first stop at the Baroque highlight of Linz’s city center: the old cathedral. The monumental 17th-century church marks the city’s skyline with its two towers topped with onion domes. You will step inside to admire its lavish interiors, with elaborately detailed wooden pulpit and the high altar decorated with marble statues and a fabulous painting of Saint Aloysius. Next, your guide will show you around the iconic main square, Hauptplatz. Here, among some of the stylish white and pastel buildings, you will see the old town hall, the Feichtinger House with its carillon, the Kirchmayr House, and the Schmidberger House. Right in the center of the bustling town square, you will spot the white marble Holy Trinity Column erected in the 18th-century as a monument of gratitude for protecting the city from the last great wave of plague in Central Europe. You will then explore the relaxing Castle Park with its stunning view on the Danube River, and head to the Landhaus, a magnificent 16th-century Renaissance building. The walking tour will end on the site of Austria’s largest church, the monolithic neo gothic new cathedral.
Choose the 3-hour tour if you'd also like to step inside the new cathedral, also known as Mariendom. You will marvel at the gorgeous interior design, with a fantastic altar, crypts, hand-carved wood details and many exquisite stained glass windows that can be studied for hours. You will also take a walk through Bauernberg Park to see its several monuments.
During the 4-hour tour, you will also visit the Nordico Stadtmuseum, which is only a few steps away from the old cathedral. This family-friendly museum shows varied temporary exhibitions on the history and culture of Linz. Among some of its treasures, you will discover old collections of photographs, antique pieces of furniture, art referencing the city and other interesting exhibits.
Choose the 6-hour tour to visit additionally the Upper Austrian Provincial Museum located right in the Linz Castle. Here, you will get an understanding of how Linz, once primarily an industrial center, became a pioneer in culture, art and technology.
