The tower no. 9 of Maximilian´s former defenses now accommodates the Leonding City Museum portraying the history of the town and its surroundings.
Having been defeated by Napolean, Archduke Maximilian of Habsburg-Este had a line of defense drawn around the town including 32 defensive artillery towers, four of which have been preserved in the Leonding area.
In neighboring Linz and on Pöstlingberg only a few towers have remained.
Do not miss out on a visit to the fascinating museum in tower no. 9 on 55 Daffingerstrasse street!
