Full description
Join a family-friendly tour to experience Linz's history and culture in a fun way. See the city's historical sites on a tour adapted to your kids as you discover the legends and fairy tales of Linz Old Town. Choose between a two-hour and a four-hour walking tour. Meet your guide outside arte Hotel Linz, then follow them to the Pöstlingbergbahn Museum. Explore the permanent exhibition on the historic railway with your guide. Let your kids play on the old-school railway carriage as you enjoy the nostalgic atmosphere of this valley station. After having fun at the railway museum, pass the Ars Electronica Center Museum of the Future and cross the Nibelungenbrücke bridge over the Danube River to explore the heart of Linz. See the most important buildings and monuments on the Hauptplatz, such as the Old Town Hall, the spectacular Holy Trinity Column, and the beautiful Neptune Fountain. Enjoy the riddles, fairy tales, and mystery stories your guide tells to introduce the city’s history and culture to your children. Then, leave the main square and stroll down the Hofgasse, a charismatic narrow alley, passing Kepler's House and the Losensteiner Freihaus. Finally, stop at Linz Castle, where you will explore the castle’s inner courtyard and play in the Castle Park.
