On your next trip to Linz make sure to consider employing our Linz car hire services as your means of personal transportation through Austria’s third largest city. Linz is an industrial city and is the heart of the second strongest economic region in the country. Due to this characteristic and despite the fact that the city boasts a rather large ‘old town’ district, it is a far cry from the fairy tale like charm of Salzburg for instance. Linz is an industrial and a university town.
The city is served by the Linz Airport called Blue Danube Airport which is located at about a twenty minute drive from the city, a distance which is covered by bus routes and taxis but your best choice would be to employ our Linz car rental services and have a car of your choice ready for you at the airport.
Even though as mentioned earlier Linz is not the same type of city as others in Austria are, the place does tend to offer more of a real life Austrian atmosphere and the simple act of strolling through the center of the city will give you a sense of the place’s history.
The old town offers what you might expect from an old European city, winding lanes and wonderful residences with arched gates and a spacious, Baroque main square.
Linz can also be considered to be a city of churches alongside one of industry and universities. It is the home of Austria’s largest church, the New Cathedral which features an 134 meter tower and can house twenty thousand people and then there’s the city’s landmark, the Pilgrimage Basilica.
The city also features St. Martin’s Church which is thought to be the oldest original church in Austria being first documented in 799.
Just like any really important old European city, Linz needs a castle or a fortress to its name and of course you can visit Linz castle.
These are of course only a few of the many sights and attractions that Linz has to offer so don’t forget to employ our Linz car hire services so that you can see these and many more.
