We visited here recently. You can get the straunbann from Hauptplatz for 6.60 each and you get a magnificent view of the city. There are also two lovely restaurants up here where you can get some nice food.

Nice tram ride through linz and up the hill. View at the top marvellous of the city and the hills surrounding! The Church is typical catholic but pretty. We had a drink on the terrace cafe with a spectacular view.
