The city gate Linzertor at a height of 28 m is one of the most massive gate towers in Middle Europe and is considered Freistadt’s landmark. You can discover the slits of the former drawbridge, the Austrian double-headed eagle, an embrasure in form of a keyhole and the picture of Saint Catherine of Alexandria with wheel and sword, the patron saint of Freistadt. The inscription “K. u. K.” reminds us that Freistadt was an imperial-royal sovereign city. Opposite you can see the splendid brewery.
