From the beginning, this castle was a small fort, which was built in 799 year. It is worth noting that in 1477, rebuilt the castle represented the Emperor Frederick III, placing in it his residence. Frederick III was the only Austrian emperor, who lived in Linz.

  Before our time of the reign of Frederick III were fragments of fortifications, the western gate Fridrihstor and bstiony. Above the main gate of the castle you can see the inscription «AEIOU» - «Alles Erdreich ist Oesterreih untertaten», which means - the whole world is subject to Austria. This marking indicates that Austria at the time was a very strong state.

In 1600, during the reign of Rudolf II of this beautiful castle was slightly redesigned. During its history, the castle was the seat of Linz, hospital, barracks and even a prison. Today in the castle you can see the most interesting collection of antiques, crafts, paintings, weapons, church utensils, etc. It should be noted that quite often in the castle park organize various exciting performances.
