Landshut & Umgebung

Landshut & the surrounding area

The old town of Landshut is superbly maintained. The town’s character is shaped by half-timbered buildings and the tower of St. Martin’s Church and is the setting for Trausnitz Castle high above the Isar river. There is plenty of unspoiled nature waiting to be discovered along the Isar and the town’s surrounding area.

Many of the most popular attractions are close by to our hotel in Altdorf near Landshut. The restaurants in the neighbourhood offer culinary highlights. Events and festivals such as the Landshut Wedding, the Bartlmädult festival in late summer and the Christmas market are always worth a visit. Cultural events such as the theatre, concerts and festivals also lie in store. Right outside of the town’s gates are expansive cycling and walking paths including the Landshuter Höhenwanderweg hiking trail and the Isar cycling trail to Munich.
