As the train station is a bit away from the old town, you need the bus to reach the centre, otherwise it's quite a walk. Buses 3 and 6 depart in front of the station building and take you to Altstadt, bus 3 also to Neustadt (useful if you have a hotel there). Back to the station, take the 3 or 6 from Altstadt. These bus lines only run every 30 minutes each, which isn't too convenient. Do not plan too tight if you have a train to catch; best, check the timetable in advance.
"Altstadt" is the central stop in the old town, located in the non-pedestrianized part of Altstadt street. It is the hub of the network where all lines meet. There is also an Airport Bus straight to Munich airport which departs here.
A single ticket is 1.80 €, a day ticket 3.60 €. They don't say it explicitly on the website but the Bayern-Ticket is valid on the buses (I enquired).

These Rikshas are a nice and funny way to explore the city of Landshut all year long and I may especially recommend it for people, who are afraid to walk a lot on the old cobbled stones of the city of Landshut.
There are 2 passenger-seats in that Riksha.
A sightseeing-tour is 12 Euros and may be booked at:

You may easily drive to Landshut with your own car :
From Munich you drive northwards on the highway in Direction Deggendorf and Passau. About 70 km north of Munich you take the exit for Landshut. There is a perfect system of big car-parks in and around the city and the best are the private parkings - there you pay 3 Euros for the whole day ( 5 Euros on sundays !) same price applies for motorhomes, and you may also stay there over night without paying an extra fee.
Beware of the Parking-house !! inside it is really narrow streets and narrow parking-bays, and you have to pay them hour by hour!!

They may be convenient to get around if you are going maybe up to the Traunitz Castle and do not want to walk. The main street is pedestrian, so that would not help there.
- Arts and Culture
Landshut is only 1 hour north-east of Munich by train on the way to Regensburg. About 90 minutes from Nürnberg.
From the trainstation, you can take a bus into the Old Town.
