In 1828, Archduke Maximilian I had the so-called trial tower built on the Freinberg - explosive tests and trial shootings were carried out here. After the completion of the final tower line at a greater distance around Linz, the test tower was no longer needed. Maximilian had two floors added and the Maximilian Chapel built next to it. In 1837 he donated the tower and chapel to the Jesuits. Today the tower is part of the Kollegium Aloisianum, a Catholic private school.Opposite the street you can enjoy a wonderful view over the city center.
