Location information for Linz


Linz is the third largest city in Austria and the capital of the federal state of Upper Austria. Although the city centre might seem a bit pale in comparison to Graz or Salzburg, it does have beautiful historical buildings to admire. First most the Linz Castle, but there are also beautiful churches like Mariendom and the Pöstlingsberg church that lies on top of a hill.

Lovers of electronic music come to the city every year at the beginning of September during the big Ars Electronica Festival. There are also many other cultural activities in Linz: during the summer months there are many daily open air concerts.


Linz has 190,000 inhabitants, but the city is located in an urban area which has 300,000 inhabitants.


The city is located in the north of Austria, on the Donau river, just south of the Czech Republic border. South of Linz lie the hills of the Alpine foothills.


Linz is an industrial centre, with big metal and chemistry industries. The port of Donau also plays a major role in the local economy. There are branches of the confectionary producer Haribo and mail order Quelle. In recent years Research and Development (especially in the technology sector) has been on the rise, and the municipal government is trying to encourage tourism in Linz. 


The Linz-Hörsching Airport (also Blue Danube Airport) lies 12 kilometers south west of the city and is easily accessible by car. The airport lies next to Bundesstrasse 133.

Public transportation

Linz has an excellent public transportation system that consists of tram and bus lines. A separate tram line runs to the top if the Pöstlingberg. With a Linz City Ticket you can use this tram line for free, but you also receive discount on entrance fees of museums and other attractions with the card.

Traffic and parking

Traffic in Linz is very busy. Not surprising, because the number of jobs in the city is almost twice as high as the working class population. Thus try to avoid driving during rush hour. Although there are many parking lots and garages, it can be difficult in summertime to find a parking space. Linz has excellent connections with the rest of Austria (Vienna and Salzburg via the A1, Graz and Klagenfurt via the A9) and with Germany (Munich). There are plans to build a freeway to the north, to the Czech Republic.


Linz has an excellent variety of overnight facilities. From camping at the Pichlinger Lake to international hotel chains (e.g Marriott). In the summer months and during conferences, it is advised to book your room well in advance.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is EasyTerra Car Hire the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
