T09 - Linz – Kepler Day Trip

Linz is a symbiosis as a city of industry, culture and nature, and an international, contemporary Creative City – surrounded by stunning natural landscapes. We will walk on the steps of Kepler. The protestant council of Upper Austria offered Johannes Kepler a special job in Linz. After the death of Emperor Rudolf II and the death of his wife, Kepler moved from Prague to Linz in 1612. In Linz he wrote revolutionary works. They are milestones of astronomy and mathematics. 400 years ago, Kepler discovered his third law. The residential building in Linz, where he lived at this time, was discovered last year and will be visited. We will walk through the inner city of Linz, enjoy a nice lunch in one of the typical restaurants. Some spare time for walking on your own and then we drive back to Vienna.
