The Pöstlingbergbahn in Linz, Austria

The Pöstlingberg Railway (Pöstlingbergbahn) links the main square of Linz with the Pöstling Hill (Pöstlingberg) which offers a great view of the city. The Pöstlingbergbahn is known as one of the world’s steepest adhesion-only railways.

As the railway starts in the centre of Linz and ends up on top of a hill one could also consider it as a mountain tramway. Love the retro-look of this tramcar introduced in 2009.
