The castle

The castle Trausnitz Castle is situated above the city and offers a beautiful view of Landshut. Visitors are guided through the castle's medieval halls and an impressive vaulted hall. In the castle chapel, the valuable sculptural decorations can be admired. The so-called Fools' Staircase depicts painted scenes from the Italian Commedia dell'arte. However, the interior of the castle can only be entered on a guided tour. The outside area is accessible free of charge.

The outside area is accessible free of charge. If you would like to enjoy a beautiful view over Landshut without a guided tour, you can visit the castle's lookout point "am Schanzl". This excursion can also be excellently combined with a visit to the Landshut city residence in the old town. A beautiful, signposted path through the courtyard garden or the ascent via the "Ochsenklavier" footpath connects the two sights.

Historical Information

Trausnitz Castle was built as early as the 13th century. At that time, however, it was still called Landeshuata Castle and was only renamed "Trausnitz" in the 16th century. For a long time, the castle was the seat of government of the Dukes of Lower Bavaria. To this day, every four years, the wedding hosted by Ludwig the Rich for his son Georg is celebrated on a grand scale and re-enacted as a major festival. Over the course of time, the castle has been used for various purposes. In 1961, a fire destroyed large parts of the building, and it had to be extensively restored. Today, the castle can be visited on guided tours.
