  • Not easy to find with the car when you would try to find signs but Google maps can guide you :-) They have a nice restaurant in the castle (build in 1204) where you also can sit outside and have a great view over the city Landshut. It’s a beautiful city with a historical center and many different beautiful shops.
  • Castle that has been the families' seat of the Wittelsbacher for centuries. Unfortunately the majority of historic building substance has been lost due to the fire in 1961. So you can visit the rebuild castle with some saved originals and lots of blank walls. Overall rather good and a nice place to see. Some beautiful views over the surrounding area are also possible. Pricing is fair (5,50 € / adult).
