This door was a serendipitous find during a 2007 bicycle trip The Mrs & I took from Passau, Germany to Vienna, Austria. We were on a side street in Linz, Austria and rode past this door. I took this photo because it was just so danged interesting, both architecturally, and artistically.
The sign above the door reads “Heinrich Gleissner Haus”. I tried to research Heinrich Gleissner, but every mention about him was written in German, and my last German class was in college back in 1977… But what I was able to translate is that Dr. Heinrich Gleissner was Governor (Landeshauptmann) of Upper Austria province.
