Church in Linz

Linz is a district of Schönfeld in the district of Meißen in Saxony .


Linz is a typical street village, in some sources also described as an extended line village .


Linz was first mentioned in a document in 1220 as Lince in a document in which Margrave Theodericus transferred the parish Lampertswalde to the Kreuzkloster near Meißen .

The church in the village center was built around 1575, it received its baroque style elements during the renovation around 1747. Opposite the church there used to be a castle complex, which was surrounded by a deep moat, the moat, for protection, which could only be crossed on a drawbridge. The castle was built around 1200. In 1413 it was mentioned as a manor. In 1581, "Christoff von Polentz Zum Lintz" had the complex transformed into a moated castle. The two stone bridges that are still standing today probably date from this time. In November 1918, the last Saxon King Friedrich August III stayed at Linz Castle . on his trip to Guteborn Castle , where he abdicated on November 13, 1918. The castle was demolished in the spring of 1948 on the decision of the Land Commission to obtain building material for new farmer positions under the pretext. The last owner of Linz Castle was Ernst-Georg Graf zu Münster .

Not far from the church is a schoolhouse built in 1876. After the Linz students started school in Schönfeld in 1961 and in Ponickau from 1997, it served as a youth hostel, which the former headmaster Wilhelm Hawer set up and ran until 1998. Today the house is used as a meeting room.

In 1994 Linz was incorporated into Schönfeld.

Due to the similarity of names, there have been very good relationships with the twin cities of Linz on the Danube and Linz on the Rhine for years .
