“Fantastic Castle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

This castle isn't easy to find in any travel guides but it is truely a hidden treasure! It's grounds extend 1.1km so it takes a good day to explore. The views are beautiful.

“not so great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

we were there in September 2011. we love visiting castles and was looking forward to this one. But was a bit disappointing when we got there. the size of it is amazing and the views are great but the actual castle not so great. i didn't like the town so much parts of it were nice to look at but i thought the people there were very rude and unhelpful.

“Impressive history & a nice aftenoon stroll”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

Proclaimed the longest fort in the world, the Burg is a collection of courtyards built along the crest of Ludwigsberg between the Salzach and the Worhlsee. Great views, the buildings become progressively more imposing (and ancient) as you approach the "first" courtyard with late medieval palace. Great views and all of this free. Admission required for museums on premises, including both local and branch of Bavarian museum dedicated to late Gothic art. When we were there (summer 2012) an impressive Landeaustellung on relations between Bavaria and Austria during medieval period (when Austria was part of Bavaria) and Burghausen was not even a border settlement!

Easy access by Cityline bus (1) from train station, fare included in Bavaria DB ticket (and reduced admission to museums).
