In 1991, after demand for student accommodation had been growing steadily, the then Superintendent of the Protestant Church A.B. Upper Austria, Mag. Hansjörg Eichmeyer, had the idea of building a hall of residence. A year later, he established the Verein Evangelisches Studentenheim Linz association together with Prof. Dr. Rudolf Kropf. The ESH opened its doors in 1995.
What is the significance of the blue and white boat in front of the hall? The boat stands for comfort and security in the ESH, as well as for helping each other and treating everyone with respect.
The ‘Library of Civil Courage’ in the ESH is a reference to courageous people. It contains their profiles and literature.
Our hall is named after the protestant theologian, student pastor and resistance fighter Dietrich Bonhoeffer.
