Schloss Hartheim, at Alkoven in Upper Austria, some 14 kilometres (9 mi) from Linz, Austria, became notorious as one of the Nazi Euthanasia killing centers, where the killing program Action T4 took place (see Hartheim Euthanasia Centre).
The castle was built by Jakob von Aspen in 1600. It is one of the most important Renaissance castles in Austria.
In 1898, Prince Camillo Heinrich Starhemberg (1835 – 1900) donated the castle as a gift to the Upper Austria Charity Organization. With the help of additional donations, they used the castle from the beginning of the 20th century as a psychiatric institution (German: Psychiatrische Anstalt, but originally called the Idioten-Anstalt).
