31th Linzer Pflasterspektakel: 20. - 22. July 2017

Traffic Obstruction

Pflasterspektakel Linz temporarily turns parts of the city centre into a pedestrian zone. For this reason there will be some obstruction of traffic during the festival hours (Thu: 4-11 p.m., Fri/Sat: 2-11 p.m.) and some time before and after.

We highly recommend neighbors and residents to reduce using the car to a minimum. Festival visitors are recommended to arrive by public transport.

Zones, in which traffic obstruction occurs:

Hauptplatz, Landstraße up to Mozartkreuzung, Altstadt, Tummelplatz, Theatergasse, Klosterstraße, Pfarrplatz, Adalbert-Stifter-Platz, Zollamtstraße, Pfarrgasse, Domgasse, Promenade, Herrenstraße, Spittelwiese, Betlehemstraße and Harrachstraße

The access to these zones is not possible, apart from neighbors and residents in large part.

Stoping and parking in these zones is not possible to a large extent. Some parking areas for resident disabled persons will be temporarily transferred, like to Westrampe to Hauptplatz (from Hauptplatz West), to Adalbert Stifter Platz (from Pfarrplatz), to Herrenstraße (from Spittelwiese), to Zollamtstraße. Further parking areas for disabled persons are to be found at Promenade 31 and Tummelplatz.

Taxis will be transferred to Untere Donaulände 1 (underneath Lentos Kunstmuseum Linz), Corner Graben Kollegiumgasse („Rox Musicbar“), Promenade 39 (Landestheater Linz).

Bus Service

Buses for trams: Thu & Fri from 4 p.m., Sat from 3 p.m.

During the festival, the public transport company LINZ AG LINES will provide replacement buses for the tram lines 1, 2, 3 and 4 between Sonnensteinstraße/Landgutstraße and Hauptbahnhof. Shuttle busses run between Landgutstraße and Sonnensteinstraße.

Important tip!

During rush hour delays of replacement buses are likely. To avoid a loss of time we recommend to go to the festival before the replacement bus service starts.

The Pöstlingberg-line (No. 50) operates regularly from the Hauptplatz

The bus lines No. 26 and 27 are redirected in the surrounding of the Promenade on all three festival days, the line 192 on Thursday and Friday.

“Get-home-safely Tram and Bus” on Thursday

On Thursday when the festival ends the last tram runs into the direction of Auwiesen at 0.02 a.m. (stop Hauptplatz), and into the direction of Aufhof at 00.30 a.m. (stop Hauptplatz).

With the LINZ AG LINES comfortably through the night!
