Travel Tips for Landshut

Landsknechte & great singers

by globetrott

Landsknechte (lansquenets / mercenaries ) were simple people, whose only weapon was that large stick. Their only chance in a battle was to keep the enemy in a big distance and kill him with the small lance on top of their sticks. During the wedding-parade they also carry a ring of flowers there in order to show that they came in a peacful mission. This group of Landsknechte are really great singers and during most of the parade they will sing their song, but unfortunately you may hear just a small part of the song, as other music-groups are passing by as well.

Reiter & Ritterspiele - tournament of the knights

by globetrott

Reiter & Ritterspiele is an event that always follows the Hochzeitszug on sunday afternoon:
It is a revival of the historic tournament of the knights and was explained in many history-books. Noble knights were fighting tournaments and made competitions in order to win a price, donated by the young princess Hedwig.
Tickets are 26,- and 29,- Euros for the seats
I am not sure if any standing places are available
The Reiter & Ritterspiele start at 05.00p.m.
at Turnierwiese, next to the place where you may watch the life in the camp.

giant gobelins in Burg Trausnitz

by globetrott

In Burg Trausnitz you may see giant gobelins as a wall-decoration in many of the big halls. Most of these gobelins show historical events of the royal Wittelsbacher family and they are in a quite good condition, they seem to have been restored recently.

Historical town of Landshut in Eastern Bavaria

by Henkster

Landshut is a real secret.
Located only 1 hour north of Munich, it offers one of the most beautiful, historic and romantic Old Towns that I have ever seen.

Some places like Rothenburg or Salzburg, also small towns, are overcrowded with tourists, but Landshut is one of those cities which everyone loves (I had heard many good things) but which, for whatever reason, does not get marketed so well.
It really surprises me.
All I can say is that Landshut (pronounced "Lands-Hoot") is such an overlooked destination and I don't really understand this, but this definately has many benefits, too :)

There are 60,000 people living in Landshut, many of them university students.

Here are some photos! Have a look.

German information

1204 fand Landshut unter Herzog Ludwig I. von Bayern mit einer von Altheim nach hierher verlegten Isarbrücke ihren Anfang. Die folgende Geschichte ließ die Stadt zur Kunststadt Bayerns werden. Besonders die Herrschaft der "Reichen Herzöge" (1393-1503) bekam Handel und Gewerbe gut. Handwerker und die berühmten Rüstungsmacher ("Plattner") bescherten Reichtum und schöne Bauwerke. Noch heute erinnert die traditionelle Fürstenhochzeit an vergangene Zeiten. Sie findet alle vier Jahre statt und ist ein riesiges Spektakel mit Ritterturnieren und akribisch nachgestelltem mittelalterlichem Leben. Das Fest hat seinen Ursprung im Jahre 1475, als Georg II. die polnische Königstöchter Jadwiga heiratete. Als Wahrzeichen Landshuts gilt der 133 m hohe Kirchturm von St. Martin. Im höchsten Backsteinturm der Welt befindet sich die größte Schatzkammer Bayerns. Sehenswert außerdem: Burg Trausnitz, das Oldtimermuseum, die Keramikwerkstätten, der Hofgarten (15. Jh.), das Zisterziensierinnenkloster und die Stadtresidenz mit Staatsgalerie.
