This beautiful 16th century Renaissance building is today the seat of the Upper Austrian Provincial Government. It used to be many things in the past though, including a school at which Johannes Kepler taught for 14 years. Much of the buildings original artwork has unfortunately been destroyed in fires.
The main sights for you to see:
- In the summer, classical concerts are held in the Italian-style courtyard. It has a central fountain, on which the seven Ptolemaic planet’s personifications are carved.
- The tower can only be climbed. It has four sundials.
- The north portal is a magnificent work of red marble.
In 2007-08, excavation for renovations uncovered important archaeological finds: a Baroque-era stone bridge (which has now been restored) and a medieval cemetery.
