In the heart of the city

Our hotel has a very central and still quiet location, directly behind the “Linzer Landstraße” pedestrian zone in the city center. All important facilities, as well as attractions can easily be reached on foot or by public transport (tramway, bus).

The main train station of Linz, the new Musiktheater, and the Barmherzigen Schwestern & Brüder Hospital are only a few minutes’ walk from our hotel.

Our hotel’s parking garage is at your disposal (€ 12 / night) with direct access to the hotel.

On request we can offer you a tour-coach parking space in front of the hotel.



The most well-known and longest shopping street is the Linzer Landstraße. Stretching 1.3 km, it offers a wide range of fashion, cuisine, culture, and entertainment.

Our personal Kolping tip:
Also explore the side streets of Landstraße!



Completed in 1935, the Cathedral of Our Lady of Immaculate Conception is the largest church in Austria. Guided tours of the cathedral and the church tower and contemplating the wonderful stained glass windows promise unique impressions and views! 

Our personal Kolping tip:
Admire the cathedral’s wonderful architecture while enjoying a cup of coffee at the Cathedral Square. 



The main train station in the center of Linz is one of the most beautiful and modern in Austria. It is directly connected to all means of public transportation. Shops, restaurants, and cafés can be found in the Bahnhof Center.

Our personal Kolping tip:
A supermarket is also open on holidays and weekends! 



Opened at the Volksgarten in 2013, this venue is the most modern opera house in Europe. Enjoy a play, music, the latest technology and architecture, and let yourself be pampered in its “Das Anton” restaurant!

Our personal Kolping tip:
Visit the “KlangFoyer” and take a look behind the scenes!



On its route from Passau to Vienna along the great river, the Danube Bike Path leads through the center of Linz. Explore Linz and its surroundings by bicycle! A number of bike paths together with gastronomy and 41 circular routes especially for e-bikers invite you to come their way.

Our personal Kolping tip:
No bicycle with you? Pick one up at a bike rental!



The Main Square (“Hauptplatz”) in the city center is one of Austria’s largest squares that is enclosed by town houses. It is linked to the historic Old City of Linz via narrow alleys. Galeries, fashion, artistic craftwork, and restaurants – here you can find everything!

Our personal Kolping tip:
Bars with live music! 



Following Christian values, the Order Hospital of the Barmherzigen Schwestern and the Convent Hospital of the Barmherzigen Brüder together are one of the leading hospitals in Upper Austria. Medicine with quality and soul is available to all people here.

Our personal Kolping tip:
Ask at the hotel for special rates for relatives of hospital patients.



This attractive hall in a central location of Linz was opened in 2003 and is used for both sports and entertainment. It offers a varied program: athletics, stunt shows, company events, musicals, and TV productions.

Our personal Kolping tip:
Venue for sporting & concert events 

Arrive feeling relaxed and at ease

By car:

Coming into the city on the A7 motorway, take the "Linz Zentrum" exit. Continue straight on Waldeggstraße (do not turn to the right toward the main train station “Bahnhof”). At the third traffic light, turn to the right into Stockhofstraße. Follow this street until the first traffic light, then turn right into Auerspergstraße. After approximately 150 meters, turn left into Gesellenhausstraße. The entry to our parking garage is located directly on the right side of Gesellenhausstraße. Have a good trip!


By train:

From the main train station, take any of the three tramway lines (direction “Universität” or “Landgutstraße”) until the “Bürgerstraße” stop. Directly opposite the tram stop is the Langgasse. Follow it and turn left into Gesellenhausstraße (three minutes’ walk from the Bürgerstraße stop, ten minutes’ walk from the main train station).


By plane:

From the Blue Danube Airport in Hörsching, take the shuttle bus to the Volksgartenstraße. Walk straight ahead until you get to the Donau Versicherung building, then stay to the right until you reach Gesellenhausstraße.

Or take a taxi from the airport directly to Hotel Kolping in approximately 20 minutes.
