Depending on the day there is more activity on the Hauptplatz. Plenty of food and other options to see here. More of a starting point than a destination in my opinion. Plenty of history and everything else you'll want to do or see is accessible from here by foot or tram.

This is the main square in the city. Very nice and quite area with few restaurants and bars around. On Friday morning there are some local products sold in the square by the local people.

Hauptplatz is right in downtown Linz. Easy access walking or by tram. You can just have a seat in one of the coffee shops around or go for a walk around town.

The Hauptplatz in Linz is a big, open square in the center of town near many tourist attractions and accommodation buildings. This is the perfect place to just hang out, relax from a shopping spree, have some coffee and famous Austrian pies or cakes, do some people watching or just enjoy the sun shine. The square invites to spend some... More

A stones throw from the Danube, this square is a quiet and peaceful spot to have a coffee and watch the world go by, lovely architecture too.

The Hauptplatz in itself may or may not be your cup of tea. Certainly there is shopping and dining opportunities there. But is also the gateway to all kinds of interesting sights, many churches and older parts of town, well within walking distance. And it has seem interesting views, particularly down Landstrasse which takes you to the main shopping area... More
