The Sankt Agatha Hillclimb is the most northern Hillclimb of Austria. It lies in the province of Oberösterreich, close to the German and Czech borders. It is located on a highland (619m) near the Danube River. It lies between the Mühlviertel north of the Donau, which is a granite and gneiss highlands considered part of the Bohemian Massif, and the Salzkammergut Alpine mountains further south. The area around Sankt Agatha can be considered part of the Pre-Alpine Hills. A hilly landscape where intensive agriculture is mixed with dense forests.
Some 50 kilometres west of Sankt Agatha on the German/Austrian border you will find Passau. The city is located on the confluence of the Inn and Illz rivers with the Danube. The historic center is build on the tongue of land right where the rivers melt into eachother. Throughout the centuries Passau has always been under the influence of Italian architects. That, together with the closeness of the waters gives the city a southern charm. The absolute highlight of the old town is the St. Stephan’s Cathedral build in the Italian Baroque Style. It has the second largest pipeorgan in the world. Dominating the city however is the Veste Oberhaus, or Prince-Bishop’s castle, located on a hilltop above the old town. Most tourists visit Passau as the first stop on their Danube cruise.
Going 50 kilometres east of Sankt Agatha you will arrive in the third largest city of Austria, Linz. The last decades Linz has sought to improve its image as a boring industrial town by promoting cultural manifestations. It now holds two modern art museums of international importance, the Ars Electronica Center and the Lentos Art Gallery. It also has older monuments, mostly around the large city square. Not to miss is also the Linz Castle and its large museum.
