Linz's cityscape is shaped not only by culture and industry, but also by nature and the beautiful banks of the Danube, which invite you to relax and slow down. Further information: Linz for nature lovers


City hiking trails

Linz's city hiking trails allow you to gain new perspectives of Linz on foot. Ten signposted walking routes lead nature lovers through the green city by the Danube. Well-known destinations such as Pöstlingberg and Pleschinger See are included, as are unusual hiking trails, such as the tower trail. Part of the Way of St. James also leads through Linz.


Discover and get to know nature in Upper Austria from a new perspective – that's possible with Naturschauspiel. Nature reserves, such as the Traun-Donau-Auen nature reserve and the Pleschinger oyster bed are well worth seeing, as are the Botanical Gardens directly in Linz.
