A Hotel for Groups
Visiting Linz as a group
Are you thinking of Linz for your next group excursion for your friends, company, club, senior citizens association, etc.? Congratulations! Linz has a multifaceted range of offers for groups and will impress you and your fellow travelers!
Linz, the UNESCO City of Media Arts in the heart of Upper Austria, invites you to explore its interesting, modern, exciting, and relaxing atmosphere. Visitors are encouraged to be curious and risk a change of perspective in this many-sided city on the Danube. Vivid museum experiences, impressive theaters, versatile gastronomy, and a wide range of shopping opportunities make Linz a fascinating and modern city with tradition. Our centrally located group hotel Kolping is your perfect starting point!
Are you looking for a varied and unforgettable program for your next group trip? In Linz you will find the perfect conditions: you will be surprised by the diversity of the City on the Danube and your group will spend an exciting as well as relaxing time together.
Our hotel’s central location makes it possible for your group to conveniently explore the city on foot or in your tour bus (free parking space directly in front of the entrance).
Get immersed in this modern city on the Danube with Art and Culture – in the UNESCO City of Media Arts. Choose among a visit to the Museum of the Future “Ars Electronica Center”, an exhibition in the Lentos Art Museum or in the Schlossmuseum. Of course, attending a cultural event in the Brucknerhaus or the Musiktheater should also not be missed.
At the same time, you experience the transition from the modern to the traditional - in historic town houses, while walking through the Old City, in the Nordico City Museum, or while enjoying a piece of Linzer Torte – made from the oldest cake recipe in the world.
Linz has long been much more than the “Steel City” – nevertheless, only here do you have the opportunity to learn about steel in such a tangible way. Visit the voestalpine Stahlwelt and experience this basic material as you never have before. With shuttle busses you drive directly through the vast company premises – a unique experience.
Furthermore, Linz has a lot to offer for nature lovers: A Danube harbor cruise aboard the “Linzerin” (shipping company Wurm & Köck) lets you take in different perspectives of the city from the river. Deceleration is hereby guaranteed!
Equally calming and panoramic is a ride on the Pöstlingberg tram (the oldest adhesion railway in Europe) from the city center up to Linz’s local mountain, the Pöstlingberg. From the top you have a wonderful view of the city and its surroundings. Don’t miss out on the pilgrimage church, the fairy-tale dragon train “Grottenbahn”, and a cup of coffee on the panoramic terrace.
Naturally there are more Kolping tips for planning your group excursion to Linz! Our Linz experts welcome your questions and are happy to support you as you plan your itinerary.
Our personal Kolping tip:
Due to its geographically central location, Linz is ideal for day trips with the city as a starting point! Destinations like the Donauschlinge, the Mühlviertel, St. Florian Monastery (with the Anton Bruckner organ), the Wachau region – in combination with a Danube river cruise, or an excursion to the Salzkammergut make your journey incredibly diversified!
After these eventful day trips, you return to our central city hotel, where you reminisce about your day as you enjoy dinner prepared by our hotel chef.

We are looking forward to meeting you and your group and would like to offer you an unforgettable stay with us!
