The Hasner Monument recognises Leopold Hasner's work as "Reformer of the Elementary School."
On 14th May 1869, as Minister of Culture and Education, he introduced the Imperial Elementary School Act. Hasner's grave is in Bad Ischl, but shortly after his death a number of politicians developed a plan to build a monument, in the town, to his honour.
There are around 140 monuments and memorials in Bad Ischl. From these alone it is possible to understand the immense importance of Bad Ischl as a spa, imperial and cultural town. If you would like more information we recommend you book the "FROM MONUMENT TO MONUMENT" guided tour.
