Only a couple of days ago I returned home from visiting Burghausen, the town of my childhood. I left Burghausen about 30 years ago and was surprised how positively it has changed. The Burg, the longest castle of Europe and perhaps the world, has been...More

Nice to visit the whole small city of Burghausen. Carrying so much history behind it. The burg again represents lots of history and its importance in the former time

An absolute must if ever you are visiting this Bavarian region... consisting of 3 distinct fortifications... the view is awesome. Situated on the Austrian border, you can easily reach Salzburg within 30 minutes by car...

This was a fortress castle built with moats and views across the river into Austria. This is the opposite experience of the gold gilded pleasure castles. This old castle is free to walk with beautiful views and a lovely place to have lunch. It's considered...More
