Hiking, climbing, jogging in Linz

Sports hotspots for your summer holiday 


  1. 1


    When the people of Linz go hiking on the Lichtenberg, then they go up the "Gis". The Gisela observation point at the top of the mountain can be reached on foot in about three hours. At the top the only thing you need to do is enjoy the view! And maybe have some curd cheese strudel or a cool drink at the Gasthaus zur Gis. For the kids there's a children's playground right next door!

    Scubaboard Stand Up Paddling

    If you paddle on the Danube or on the many waters surrounding Linz, you will experience a surf feeling in the middle of the city. The best places to rent SUP boards are the Brettlpraxis in Further Straße or Scubaboard in Stockhofstraße. The surf crew also offers courses for SUP beginners!

    High ropes course Ralf & Walter

    Helmet on, safety harness fastened, let's go! On the high ropes course in Kirchschlag you'll stumble across obstacles, whiz with the zip line from tree top to tree top and climb the forest like monkeys in the jungle. Everything secured and an absolute summer highlight for the kids!
