Linz Accommodation

The Altstadt (Old Town) is in the heart of the city, a great place to stay if you aren't on a budget to ensure you are close to the main attractions on offer within the town and great connections to further afield. Near the central train station (Hauptbahnhof), the area is home to many business districts and is quieter than being directly in the old town, 2 kilometers away. This is ideal for those who want to explore further afield during their stay but can still reach Linz tourist attractions easily. The Northern part of the Danube is a mix of residential and business complexes - home to the Ars Electronica Centre and its colorful light show against the river. The city offers everything from cheap hostels and student accommodation to mid-range accommodation of 2 and 3* cheap hotels in Linz up to Luxury 5* Linz hotels.

Linz Airport and Transportation

Linz Airport, known as Blue Danube Airport, is a small airport with only one runway. For a small airport, it still sees 400,000 passengers each year. You will find the 601 buses outside the arrival halls, which depart every 20 minutes to the city center. Shuttle transfers can be arranged at the counter next to the exit of the arrival. A convenient way to reach your hotel is by taxi. The taxi rank is located in front of the arrival hall. We recommend checking the taxi board for the price or ensuring the meter is on when entering the car. To make the most out of your stay and explore as much as possible, you can rent a car from one of the car rental offices at the airport.

Linz Weather

The weather in Linz is pleasant and comfortable in the summer months. However, rain is always around the corner, and winters are particularly cold. Thanks to its location in the flat area of central-northern Austria on the Danube River, winters can be quite snowy when the temperature falls below zero degrees. The best months to visit Linz and explore it with warmer weather is mid-June to Early September.
