Burgplatz, 53545 Linz am Rhein
The Castle of Linz was built in 1365 as customs levying post and fortress of the archbishops of Cologne. Only a round corner tower and the foundations remain of the original construction. You can also see a classic half-timbered house from around 1500 with an emergency exit on the 1st floor. Right next to it is a half-timbered house in the architectural style of the early 17th century with 2 gables. In the centre of “Burgplatz” you can find the fountain “Linzer Strünzer”. It is a symbol for the very early and typical inhabitant of Linz, who used to exaggerate and palliate everything concerning himself and his worldly goods.
