However, he was already operating in the Netherlands in 1881, briefly in Oosterhout, Hôtel Koppelpaarden and settling in Breda. Linnig operated there in Willemstraat, E 30a (corner Stationsplein) and Stationsplein, 6 & 7. He was still active in Breda on 31.12.1885. Some years later he returned to Antwerp where he opened an antiques business of uncertain standing.
