In 1815, Linz became part of Prussia. One year later in 1816 Linz received the status of a district town ("Kreisstadt"). This status was revoked in 1822 and Linz became part of the Neuwied county.
From 1898 until 1907 when he left for [[Vienna]], [[Adolf Hitler]] lived in the Linz area, first in the village of Leonding on the outskirts of town, and then in an apartment on the Humboldtstrasse in Linz itself. To the time of his death, Hitler considered Linz his "home town".<ref>[[Ian Kershaw|Kershaw, Ian]]. ''Hitler: 1889-1936: Hubris''. New York: Norton, 1998. p.15</ref>
After the Second World War, Linz became a part of Rhineland-Palatinate in 1946.
