Pöstlingberg

Interesting
This 537m-high hill near Linz offers an extensive view beyond Urfahr, a huge built-up area that has grown on the left bank of the Danube, where the Linz basin spreads out. Visitors can make out the business districts with their shopping avenues and large suburbs with factory chimneys. Southwards, rise the foothills of the Alps as a backdrop to this fine urban landscape.
