Cultural Trip (optional)

On Monday, 3 June 2024, we will show you the beauty of Austria and take the chance to get to know each other before the official start of the international days. Join us for an optional trip to the scenic village of St. Wolfgang where we will take Austria's steepest cog railway to the top of the mountain "Schafberg". After exploring the mountain we will take the railway back to St. Wolfgang where you will have the possibility of exploring this picturesque village on your own. Before taking the bus home we will also go on a short boat trip with the WolfgangseeSchifffahrt ferry.


Linz offers a variety of hotels at different price levels. The closest very low priced hotel is the Montagehotel Business & City which is situated just around the corner (approx. 5 min. walk) of the FH Upper Austria. For lecturers, we have also pre-reserved a certain amount of rooms at the Amedia Hotel Linz (2 min. walking distance) – please let us know if you intend to stay there and we will inform you about the special rate and give you the reservation code. Upon request we will gladly suggest other hotels. Also, one of the cheapest and most convenient ways of staying in Linz is through Airbnb.

Please book your stay individually.
