The pump room of Ischl - the “Trinkhalle” was built between 1829–1831 in the classical style. The colonnade and chessboard frieze along the cornice are fine examples of this period. Between 1851–1853 two lavishly glazed wings were added. The building was revitalised in 2008 for the occasion of the “OÖ Landesausstellung” exhibition. Today the “Trin
khalle” is the cultural heart of the town and hosts concerts and exhibitions. Since 2008, the Bad Ischl Tourist Information, town management and the “Kulturplattform Bad Ischl” have been located in the “Trinkhalle”.
