Getting There & Around
The Linz Airport, also called the Blue Danube, lies about 6 miles (10 km) southwest of the town's centre. Flights served by the airport are both domestic and international with connections to and from Frankfurt, Vienna and Dusseldorf. Additional seasonal flights are added during winter and summer. There are several transportation options to reach Linz from the airport.
There is a Western Railway central station in Linz, as well as various types of river transportation on the Danube. Public transport is offered through trams, buses and trolleybuses. Located at the northwestern edge of town, the Pöstlingbergbahn tramway is a unique way to see the area.
