Favorite places in Linz

Culinary and cultural highlights in the city of steel


  1. 1

    Friedlieb und Töchter

    Small but oh my! You will have difficulty finding better cakes anywhere in Linz or the surroundings than in Friedlieb und Töchter. Homemade and above all with a certain portion of love, they will bring a smile to your face after the very first bite. The choice is not just limited to typical Austrian gateaux, cakes, slices and co. – it is best to go there and see for yourself the (seasonally) varied assortment.

    Das goldene Einhorn

    Mary Poppins, Holla the Forest Fairy or Arabian Fog Cutter - the creations in this downtown bar will be sure to wow even cocktail connoisseurs. Classically sophisticated, 'The golden Unicorn' is the perfect location for all occasions, from after-work drinks to dates.

  3. 3


    THE address for down-to-earth traditional fare in a friendly and modern atmosphere. Top quality is a matter of course – the Ganglwirt has been serving only the best that Austria has to offer since 1838. The short trip from the heart of Linz to the Ganglwirt is definitely worthwhile!
