Linz Airport Guide

Linz is the third largest city in Austria, and one of the main ways to get into the country by plane. Linz Airport (Blue Danube Airport) has a variety of different places that you can go while you are there, and they have a lot of ways for you to access everything around the country as well. When you arrive at the airport, you will find public telephones, a shopping area, a restaurant, and computers which have access to the internet. They also have conference rooms and car parking available.

First, let’s look at the public transportation that they have available. They have a shuttle that can take you right to the Horsching railway station, at no cost to you. Then, you can take the train into the city, which takes less than 10 minute. You can also take a bus or a taxi from the airport into the city and around to other popular destinations.


These, of course, have a cost and you have to make sure that the public transportation that you are using is heading to the place that you want to go – it will take some scheduling and you will have to do research ahead of time so that you don’t end up going in the wrong direction.

One option that many people that travel to Linz Airport consider is hiring a vehicle that they can use while they are there. Because there are so many different attractions (especially ski resorts) that are located within a short distance, it’s almost better for you to hire a vehicle and take yourself everywhere that you want to go. There are Linz car hire services that you can line up before you arrive, or you can check out what ones are available as soon as you arrive to the airport.

If you are going to hire a vehicle, however, you want to make sure that it’s ready to take you pretty much anywhere that you want to go. During the cold, difficult winters in Austria, all vehicles should have snow tyres on them. These tyres have extra treads that make it so that you have a better grip on the road, even if there’s a lot of snow. If you don’t have snow tyres on your hired vehicle, you may also want to consider putting chains on the tires. The chains do something similar, by allowing the car to grip onto the road more easily and to prevent you from getting stuck.

Ski resorts are one of the main attractions in the Linz area, and there are hundreds that are within a 3 hour drive of the airport. This is because the Salzkammergut is only about an hour away from the city, and the Salzkammergut  has some of the best skiing in the world.  Some of the most popular ones include Feuerkogel, the Freesports Arena Krippenstein, Kirchdorf, Losenstien, Weyeregg, Altmunster, and Dachestein West. These ski resorts are open throughout the winter season, and each of them offers something different to all levels of skiers.
