Ringed with historic buildings, cafes, and shops, Hauptplatz sits at the heart of Linz and is one of the largest town squares in Austria. As the city grew in importance during the medieval period, the importance of the main plaza also increased, and eventually saw the construction of the town hall during the early 1500s. You'll find a classic Germanic clock, several examples of Baroque and neo-Baroque facades and decorations, and the sizable cathedral boasting twin bell towers. Afterward, kick back with a drink or snack at one of the nearby eateries, bars, or coffeehouses. Don't miss getting an up-close look at the statue of the Holy Trinity, topped with golden angels and saints, set in the center of the square. Using our online itinerary creator, Linz attractions like Hauptplatz can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

The main square in Linz offers everything you need, there are coffees, restaurants and some shops. But it also has some beautiful Baroque buildings and a column. I really like this place. In Winter..... more »
Nice and open area with lots of restaurants and ice cream for a summers day. A quirky place to visit for a day trip and gorgeous, colourful flower displays!
Quite a lot of scaffolding about. A trip on the little train is enjoyable. Locals don't seem very friendly.
