Trausnitz Castle, Landshut

(4.6/5 based on 140 reviews on the web)
Steeped in history and offering unbeatable views of the city, Trausnitz Castle was built in the 13th century and once served as the official seat of the hereditary rulers of Bavaria. The castle is mostly noted for including the so-called "chamber of art and curiosities," a room that can best be described as the precursor of today's museums. The castle's renowned chamber contains works of arts, treasures from the Orient, and curiosities typical of the collections owned by rulers in the Renaissance era, such as small carvings of plum stones, stuffed animals, minerals, corals, and scientific instruments of the 15th century. Several of the castle's grand rooms can be booked for special events and are often used for conferences and concerts. Check online for opening times and available guided tours.

  • This castle is high on a hill and a good hike to get there! (you can drive too). The architecture is stunning as is the view of the Altstadt (old town) below.  more »
  • The Castle reach the road directly from the old town, a little high and then a few steps. It is quickly up. A well preserved Castle in the guided tours are offered. We ran high due to the lookout. Unfortunately to get to the perfect lookout only if the Buschenschenke has open, with us she was unfortunately, so we were somewhat disappointed.

  • Fantastic place to visit! Terrible place to try and siege.
  • Cool place with nice views
  • The best castle ever
  • Nice view over Landshut and surrounding area.
  • Very quiet, historic town with charm. The views are beautiful, especially when you know the right corners. Mostly only isolated individuals / couples are there, what makes for some rest and relaxation. The cookie is usually not crowded. From the top you can see the city and the annual Dult optimally. Especially after sunset shines the city in beautiful lights coming from above very nicely to the validity.
