Bishop's Court

Linz, Oberösterreich, Österreich
The historical Bischofshof is a residential house and the seat of the diocesan bishop.
The bishop's residence is the most important secular Baroque building in the city. Commissioned by Kremsmünster monastery (1721-26), 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). It is still the episcopal see.
