  • by TRAIN - Main Station: Linz Hauptbahnhof

    Linz is a major train stop between Vienna and Salzburg. All Eurocity (EC) and Intercity (IC) trains stop here. There are also good train connections to Graz, to Germany and Hungary. The connection to/from Prague is straightforward but rather slow.
    The easiest and fastest way to the University of Linz is taking a taxi at the Main Station (Linz Hauptbahnhof). You can also travel to the University of Linz by public transport.
