For a large park run all off-road in Linz, we recommend Wasserwald. This park, located ~6 km south of the city center, is known as a ‘water forest park’, owing the large reservoir at the park’s southeastern end that supplies much of Linz’s drinking water.
There are several km of paths in Wasserwald — a combination of wooded trails and more open areas. There’s a 2.1 km running path, an extensive outdoor fitness course, and numerous fields/athletic facilities. A path also heads southeast of the main park to the water treatment plant.
- Several km of paths, including a 2.1 km 'running course'
- Some rolling hills
- Numerous starting/access points, depending on whether car or tram access
- Transport: Tram line 1 to the Dauphinestraße station. There's a large parking lot at the northern end of the park.
