“Adorable pedestrian zone”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

Filled with unique stores and great restaurants, don't miss this hidden gem in Burghausen (home to the world's longest castle). My favorite place for some bar food and great cocktails is Knoxoleum (open daily at 6pm). Rumor is the owner spent one million euros on the decor and I believe it! Don't miss a trip to the unique bathrooms.
