This beautiful and historic church has two "main" altars, one by Schwanthaler and one by Pacher. The organ loft and raised pulpit are also noteworthy.

Landshuter Hochzeit

Reviewed By Liam W

Huge festival, a must-go for medieval lovers. The town of Landshut is converted into this massive medieval place for 4 weeks. The atmosphere in town is great and going out on the weekends in the city centre as well. They put up stalls and except for during the parade which is every Sunday you can sit up there. Everyone brings picnics and beer and you just have a great time. Also, they build up a medieval village with nice attractions and food, and they host this huge parade every Sunday (definitely get up there in the early morning to get a front-line view).

Stadtresidenz Landshut

Reviewed By avmn - Reeuwijk, The Netherlands

The Residenz itself can only be visited by a tour. Our guide was very good. In the Residenz there was more to see than in the Castle.
In a other patt of the Residenz there is a keramik museum and an historic museum.Both ae small. I liked the historic museum very much.

City Center Landshut

Reviewed By Charles C - Mountain View, California

The city of Landshut along with the Trausnitz castle, were founded in 1204. A portion of the Wittelsbach family, which ruled all of Bavaria, lived here since 1231. In 1255 Bavaria was split in two and Landshut became the capital of Lower Bravaria. The three main attractions of Landshut are St. Martin’s church, the tallest all-brick church in the world), the old own (Altstadt) with its arcaded Stadt Residenz (town palace) and the castle Trausnitz. Get a great view of the town from up in the castle. Landshut is 45 minutes by train (€17) from Munich and worth a day trip. Most people don’t stop here on their way to Passau, and that’s a shame. I spent the night in Landshut and found out that two days is one too much. I stayed at the Hotel Zur Insel Gasthof (Hotel on the island) and, indeed, you are in the middle of the Isar River! Not crowded, not many tourists.

Rathaus

Reviewed By Helene S - Olching, Germany

If you happen to spend some hours or more in Landshut, you should visit the "Prunksaal" - the large ceremonial room of the Town Hall. The room is richly decorated with a wooden ceiling and wonderful paintings relating the wedding of the daughter of the Poland King, Jadwiga Jagiellon, and George of Bavaria in 1475.

Bis Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts bestand das Ländtor aus einem Torturm und einem vorgelagerten Zwinger: Heute ist nur mehr das Tor des Zwingers erhalten.
Ein Stadttor von damals 8, es ist noch das Alte Bergstr. Burghauser Tor Landshut

Heiliggeistkirche

Reviewed By mabellejee - Regensburg, Germany

Inside the crunch is pretty and has been set up as a Museum of Landshut with special artifacts from the town. Costumes to dress up as a knight was cool for both kids and some adults. Also a firefighter costume was there for kids to try on.
Some interesting art pieces to see.
Worth stopping in and it doesn't take long,

Skulpturenmuseum im Hofberg

Reviewed By frola13 - Kiev, Ukraine

Спускаясь из замка Траузнитц через парк, в самом низу попадаете в музей скульптур под открытым небом. Экспозиция все время меняется. Когда мы тут были, была экспозиция железной скульптуры. Думаю, минут на 10-15 стоит заглянуть :)
