The Bishop's residence Linz (Bischofshof)

The bishop's residence is one of the most important secular Baroque building in the city. Commissioned by Kremsmünster monastery (1721 -1726), it was built by Michael Pruckmayr according to plans by Jakob Prandtauer, who was also responsible for the monasteries in Melk and St. Florian.

The impressive lattice gate on the staircase is by Valentin Hoffmann (1727).

Today it is the residence of the bishop.
