Want to know what the sex scene is like in Linz? How easy it is to find an escort and what adult entertainment there is in the city?
Linz sits on the picturesque river Danube and, as well as being an important economic hub and seat of higher learning, is a hot spot for tourism for the region. As a result, this Austrian city has to cater for commuters, residents, students, business visitors as well as tourists. This diverse mix of clientele can find a wide variety of entertainments on offer including bars, clubs and restaurants as well as historical and cultural treats. And, because Austria is one of only eight European countries where the sex industry is fully regulated and legalised, Linz can also offer sex.
In this guide, we find out just what makes Linz such a hot spot for adults once the sun goes down; from brothels to strip clubs, laufhauses to sex saunas and some other alternatives you might not have considered.

Prostitution in Linz
Prostitution in Austria is a fully legal and regulated industry employing more than 10,000 sex workers, most of whom are from the former Eastern bloc region (Romania, Hungary, Bulgaria).
Though there are only a few hundred registered prostitutes in Linz, there are estimated to be more than double this with illegal migrants plying their trade through street prostitution or using online advertising.
Linz is Austria’s third largest city and has a population of just 200,000 people, around 200 of whom are registered as professional sex workers; that’s one hooker per 1000 people.
Legal workers from within the EU mainly find employment as brothel hostesses, escorts and masseuses. Most are independent and their earnings from sexual services are distinct from those charged by the house.
You can find prostitutes on the street (see Street Prostitution, below) or at any of the venues we’ve indicated below that provide full service. Alternatively, you can book an outcall service at your hotel by using one of the escort directories or agencies below.

Sex in Linz
Just like in other Austrian cities, the venues for obtaining full service are quite varied and you can find strip clubs offering full contact, brothels that have strip shows and sex clubs that are swinging venues. We’ve tried to categorise the adult entertainment but just be aware that most places may offer more than you first expect.
Flügelhofgasse 12, 4020 Linz
Pascha is a well-known brothel in Linz and is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
The venue is one of three brothels run by the same company in Austria, the others being in Vienna and Salzburg. All of the bordellos share a reputation for a warm welcome and in providing good service.
The place is small but inviting and there is a cosy and comfortable bar where you can spend some time with the girls before making your selection and retiring to a private room.
Prices vary depending on what you want and must be discussed with girls directly. You can expect to pay between €100 and €150 for a 30 minute service.
Wiener Strasse 217, 4020 Linz
The Moulin Rouge typifies our opening statement about adult venues in Austria and is both a brothel and nightclub but also a daybar offering strip dancing.
The club is small but welcoming and it can be a little too intimate for some punters who prefer anonymity and privacy but locals seem to like the set up. The bar has podiums and poles for dancers and there are several private rooms for getting serviced in. They are basic but functional and always clean.
The club is open as follows:
- Monday to Saturday: 12.00pm to 6.00am
- Sunday: 9.00pm to 6.00am
Rudolfstrasse 95, 4040 Linz
Nightclub Rendez-Vous also offers more than just a bordello experience with a large contact bar to entertain guests. However, this is more than just a contact bar and the rooms here are well put together with elegantly styled spa baths and large comfortable beds. There are also some basic rooms and you get what you pay for.
Rates must be negotiated with your chosen lady with a room fee usually being charged by the house on top.
These running houses are often coupled with nightclubs (or Kontakt bars). Arranged like a series of single occupancy rooms, laufhouses are similar to the one-woman brothels you might find in Hong Kong. Independent prostitutes rent rooms and indicate that they are available for business by either leaving the door open or illuminating a green light above their door. Many will allow you to wander the corridors whilst some have a central bar or lobby where you can choose in advance (much like a brothel). Some houses charge an entrance fee.
There is quite an assortment of running houses in Linz and you can expect to pay anything from €50 for a quick service or from €100-€150 per hour.
- Mimi, Rudolfstraße 89, 4040 Linz
- Herzl Bar, Paschinger Str. 74, 4060 Leonding
- Strachgasse, Strachgasse 5, 4020 Linz
- Laufhof Linz, Ignaz Mayerstrasse 8, 4020 Linz
- Sex Linz, Obere Donaulände 45A, 47 & 49, 4020 Linz
Most of Austria’s swinging clubs are in Vienna but there are several clubs around the country, some of which allow guests to play.
If you have access to a car then you can find WS Club Pattaya about an hour’s drive to the south west of Linz in Gampern. The club is open Tuesday to Sunday from 7.00pm onwards and is open to couples and singles.
Likewise, 60km to the east you can find Caribik, Europe’s largest and most ‘visionary’ swinger club. The website has details of all the events, opening times and admission prices.
Erotic Massage Parlour
Kremstal Bundesstraße 5, 4061 Pasching
The ladies of the Massage Temple provide a range of erotic massages as well as full French service. They can also provide other services on request.
Reviews for their body slides and S&M massage are all very positive and there are ten ladies who are each skilled in different areas.
The Massage Temple has eight rooms each well appointed for providing professional massage plus one S&M room.
The venue is open daily from 10.00am to 11.00pm and is just a 15 minute taxi ride from the city.
Best of the Rest
You can also get a good body rub and happy ending at one of these two venues:
Eisenbahngasse 14, 4020 Linz
Villa Ostende is a stylish venue offering full brothel service but with the added extra of continuous nightclub entertainment. As well as live sex shows and strip performances there are around 15 girls who are available for service.
The club is in the heart of Linz and has an excellent reputation in the city with locals as well as visiting tourists.
The club is open from midday until 6.00am.
Linzerstraße 56a (gegenüber Jet-Tankstelle), Freistadt 4240
A lounge bar club, Dolce Vita is a little dated in style and is more like a brothel with contact bar. Though there is strip entertainment to keep visitors occupied there is little doubt that most punters are there for one thing only. As a result, the ambience can be a little flat on occasions but the girls are willing.
Rooms are basic but serviceable but it is the girls you come (and stay) for. Representing quite a few nationalities, there is a good selection of ladies here and you can stay for a few drinks and a bit of entertainment to decide without any obligation.
Rates are good here but must be negotiated with the individual ladies.
Wiener Bundesstraße 176, 4050 Traun
Night Flight is situated about a 20 minute drive south west of Linz in the city of Traun.
Offering a bordello service combined with a day bar, night club and offering striptease dance entertainment the Night Flight is a modern club which attracts a young crowd. The VIP lounge is popular with business visitors and there are special events being run on a regular basis to attract the corporate crowd.
You can get table and lap dances as an aperitif to the full service offered by the house girls.
The nightclub is open as follows with the day bar being open from midday:
- Monday to Saturday: 9.00pm to 6.00am
- Sunday: 8.00pm to 6.00am
Best of the Rest
You can also experience Austrian hospitality at these two nightclubs both of which provide a mixture of evening and day entertainment alongside a brothel offering:
Contact Bars (Kontakt Bars)
Contact bars are places where you can meet prostitutes and are broadly the equivalent of street prostitution without having to be on the street. Some venues have rooms which may be rented by the half hour.
- Cafe Niveau, Adlergasse 8, 4020 Linz
- Cafe Diskret, Dinghoferstrasse 50, 4020 Linz
- Why Not, Dinghoferstrasse 55, 4020 Linz
- Orient Bar, Schillerstrasse 49, 4020 Linz
Edtstraße 7, 4060 Leonding
A popular FKK sauna club situated about 15-20 minutes south of the city, Goldentime is a big club covering a space of 1800 sq. m.
As well as a plethora of professional hostesses waiting to provide full service (and perform other requests) the club has a range of ways to entertain its guests including swimming pool, sauna, jacuzzi, erotic cinema, smoking room, garden and lounge/TV room. Plenty of play rooms are available to enjoy privacy with your hostess.
The sauna is open daily from 11.00am to 4.00am. Entrance is charged at €70 for women and €85 for men. Your pass gives you as much time in the club as you want and includes buffet, non-alcoholic drinks and use of all the facilities (massage and solarium charged extra). The services of the hostesses is discussed and agreed with each individual.
There is no official red-light district in Linz but most of the adult entertainment can all be found in the Old Quarter, south of the Danube. There are very few street prostitutes in Linz as licensed prostitites can all find employment in the city’s regulated establishments; however, you can occasionally find migrant sex workers who try their luck in either this area or around the shipyard.
There are no hard and fast guide prices for sex procured on the streets as it is quite rare but given you would expect to pay in the region of €100 for a service in a brothel (or less in a laufhaus), we would expect street prices to be anything from €30 for a handjob up to €80 for a service.
Sex Shops & Sex Cinemas
Melissenweg 3, 4020 Linz
Art-X is a large sex shop with a great range of all the bedroom essentials that you might need for a naughty weekend away or for those novelty items that a stag or hen do can’t do without.

- Monday to Friday: 10.00am to 8.00pm
- Saturday: 10.00am to 6.00pm
