Augustiner Chorherrenstift St. Florian

Through the times and centuries, St. Florian is a place with a perfect harmony between faith, art and music. Just a few minutes from the city of Linz, you are here in between the nature. Be our guest, enjoy the lovely and peaceful guest-rooms. Use the time for a conversation with canons, go on a hike, or simply relax and let the daily routine behind you. The Canons Regular of St. Augustine's are looking forward to seeing you and wish you a pleasant and blessed stay in St. Florian!

While on a concert tour, I thoroughly enjoyed the tour of this wonderful abbey. In fact, in some respects, this is more impressive and with a more personable tour than at Melk. If you have an interest in Romantic period symphonic music, then the very strong Bruckner connection is quite special. Our guide was absolutely outstanding, too.

Mariendom Linz

Reviewed By Andi M - York, United Kingdom

We were in Linz for the Day on a guided tour in the medieval area and this church kept beckoning me as its so high above the houses. Its about 10-15 mins walk from teh town square which is nice as there are plenty of shops and cafes on route.

The Cathedral is undergoing significant renovations and so there were no seats in it and we could not get to the alter. Having said that the sheer scale of the place is what grabs you - the church is Gothic in style so there are beautiful stained glass windows and large columns throughout the church to support the roof that towers overhead
Building started in 1862 and finished in 1924. There were signs for tours. but when i went there was only a handful of tourists and the builders in the space so so it seemed so vast - hard to imaging 20,000 people in it and what that must sound like in a service
Well worth a visit if you are in Linz

St. Florian Monastery

Reviewed By clara62016 - Birmingham, United Kingdom

A tour of the libary, monastery, church and tombs, including the sarcophagus of the famous composer Anton Bruckner. Went on the guided tour and was issued with the audio guides in the english language. We were told to look out for the number of the button to push which we would see at various points along the way, but although we looked, we could never see these numbers and we were randomly pushing the buttons to see whether they contained the correct information for that particular part of the building.
The tour was conducted in the german language and we noticed that the tour guide seemed to be talking extensively to the group of people, but our audio translation only lasted a few minutes and we were left waiting for the guide to finish talking, wishing we could understand what she was saying. It was obvious that those who understood German were getting far more interesting facts than those with audio guides.
Afterwards, we listened to the famous organ in the church for half-an-hour which was very good.

Hauptplatz

Reviewed By Larry C

One of Austria's largest enclosed squares is an excellent starting point for your exploration of Linz. Before leaving, check out the Holy Trinity Column completed in 1723 to commemorate the town’s deliverance from war, fire and plague.
All three tram lines pass through the Hauptplatz. It is also the starting point for the tram which travels up to Postlingberg (during summer vintage tram cars are in service).

During our visit to Linz, we entered the Old Cathedral (Alter Dom), also called the Church of Ignatius, built in the 1600s in Baroque style. We were allowed to take photographs within this beautiful church.
