In the vicinity of Linz, there is an important natural landmark – Hohe Tauern National Park. This is the largest alpine reserve, which was founded in 1981. On its territory, there is a huge glacier, and more than 400 mountain peaks, the height of some of which is more than 3,000 meters. Most tourist routes in this reserve are open in the summer. At this time of the year, you can admire crystal clear mountain lakes, beautiful waterfalls and mountain springs.
One of the most beautiful religious monuments of the city is the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception. It is one of the largest Catholic cathedrals in Austria. The construction of the Cathedral lasted more than 70 years and was finally completed only in 1924. The cathedral has preserved many original elements of decoration. Its visitors can admire the beautiful stained-glass windows, frescoes and elements of woodwork.
A striking medieval landmark is the Rosenau Castle. The first official mention of this castle refers to 1593, and the exact date of constructing the castle is unknown. Over hundreds of years of its existence, the castle was rebuilt and restored many times. At the beginning of the 18th century, it acquired unique features of the Baroque style that are inherent in it even now. The beautiful castle changed its status more than once. In certain periods, it housed a school, a nursing home, a weaving factory and even a church. Visitors are sure to be told about all the details of the history of the castle during the excursion.
