We characterize the longterm behavior of a semiflow on a compact space $K$ by asymptotic properties of the corresponding Koopman semigroup. In particular, we compare different concepts of attractors, such as asymptotically stable attractors, Milnor attractors and centers of attraction. Furthermore, we give a characterization for the minimal attractor for each mentioned property. The main aspect is that we only need techniques and results for linear operator semigroups, since the Koopman semigroup permits a global linearization for a possibly non-linear semiflow.
