History

Read more about the Bergschlößl’s history.

The Bergschlößl lies amidst a botanical park like on a tranquil island, away from the hustle and bustle of the inner city of Linz.

This magnificent baroque building was constructed in 1718 and stands out with its architecture and vivid history. Having been revitalized, it now shines in new splendour.
It was possible to combine the original character of the „Bergschlößl bey Linz“  with modern construction methods in order to create an event location of incomparable ambience.

The Park

The Bergschlößl Park was established in the 18th century for the purpose of a botanical training course at the Nordic Monastery, today’s Aloisianum, guided by Ignaz Schiffermüller.

It is among the first Upper Austrian „botanical-economical“ parks and was built according to ecological viewpoints that are still ambitiously pursued by the Linz City Gardens Association.
