In the rooms of the former residence of the writer Adalbert Stifter (1805-1868), there is now a centre for literature and language. The Adalbert Stifter Institute is not only a research station for literature and linguistics, but also sees itself in its entirety as a service centre for school pupils and students, scientists and teachers, as well as members of the public interested in literature. The StifterHaus also houses the OÖ Literaturhaus. This offers Upper Austrian writers a platform to present their ambitious new publications. Here you can, for example, see the original manuscript of Stifter's Witiko, written from 1865 to 1867.
