Linz – A Runner's Paradise on the Danube

The Upper Austrian capital city has the reputation of being a modern, dynamic city. Now Linz also proves its skill as a center for running.
In addition to a multitude of running events, attractive offers of permanent running opportunities also await you.
Even starting right in the center of the city you will find magnificent, traffic-free stretches, where you can enjoy your hobby with like-minded people for kilometers along the Danube. This is also ideal for business travelers: for morning exercise or to relax after a long day of work, you can, in some cases, start directly from the hotel along lighted paths to get your exercise and enjoy yourself in the wellness area of the hotel. In addition, there are the extensive offers for leisure, shopping and cultural activities found in a modern city.

9 Signposted Running and Swimming Routes

Wasserwald, Danube Park, the Promenade along the old horse-drawn railway line ... These are sights to see: in the city and in its immediate vicinity there are a total of nine signposted, precisely measured running and swimming routes. Diversity, nature and exercise are thus guaranteed.
