All in all, maybe because of the off season, the main square left us rather empty, as it was really empty :) It was beyond our expectations.

One of Austria's largest enclosed squares is an excellent starting point for your exploration of Linz. Before leaving, check out the Holy Trinity Column completed in 1723 to commemorate the town’s deliverance from war, fire and plague. All three tram lines pass through the Hauptplatz....More

The only place of interest in Linz City! Although it has a mixed history because during 1939 and 1945 it was named after Adolf Hitler!

Wonderful town square, set up with Christmas markets. All sorts of booths, from food to hand crafted items. A must see area during the winter months. Lots to see, smell and hear.

As far as we know the ships dock close to the Hauptplatz. It is a few minutes walk from the docking area to the Hauptplatz. Leave the ship and turn right - you should see the Hauptplatz after a short walk.
