Access is easy. The castle is well preserved. And the view is magnificent. After your visit walk down to Altstadt Landshut and enjoy a Weiss and local tastes

The castle is very nice but could be better maintained. The guided tour is only in German. It would be better if they offer an English tour once a day. Tip: The tour gives you a chance to see the beautiful view of the city.

Very well preserved, I arrived late and thus couldn't make it to the inside, but the castle complex, walls and park are very beautiful as well. Highly recommend solo travellers to walk around with some medieval music on your earphones, simply magical experience...
