Join this family-friendly tour to experience Linz's history and culture in the most fun and exciting way. Your friendly private guide will adapt the program and commentary to engage your children in sightseeing of the historic sites. Let the kids discover legends and fairy tales of Linz Old Town. During the 2-hours walking tour, you will visit the former base station of the popular Pöstlingbergbahn, that is, the Pöstlingbergbahn Museum. It’s a great playground for children of any age, and the parents will enjoy the nostalgic atmosphere of this valley station as well. Pass by the “Museum of the Future” - Ars Electronica Center and cross the Nibelungenbrücke over the Danube River to explore the heart of Linz. On the Hauptplatz, see the most important buildings and monuments, such as the Old Town Hall, the spectacular Holy Trinity Column, and the beautiful Neptune Fountain, where children can play with clean water. Listen to riddles, fairy tales, and mystery stories from your guide to get an introduction to the city’s history and culture.

Leave the main square and stroll down the charismatic narrow allay Hoffgase, passing by the house of Kepler and the Losensteiner Freihaus. The last stop of this fantastic tour will be the Linz Castle, where you will explore the castle’s inner courtyard and play in the Castle Park. Choose the 4-hours option to visit the Castle Museum with permanent exhibitions on the artistic and cultural history of Upper Austria from the Neolithic Age up to the 20th-century. See many pieces of art and history that even children will find interesting, such as the lovely traditional costumes and golden hats, a collection of arms and armors, and a vintage car.
