Summer house of Eggenwald

Eggenwaldsches Gartenhaus in Leoben, Austria

In this summer house formerly owned by Josef von Eggenwald (Eggenwaldsches Gartenhaus), the Peace Treaty of Leoben was signed between the Holy Roman Empire and the First French Republic on April 18th, 1797. This was an important event at the end of the ‘War of the First Coalition’. Today it houses a branch of the museum for local history. [German]
