We only had a short time in Landshut, a cold wintery Sunday but we headed directly into the center of the old town to find somewhere warn for a coffee. What we found was St Martin's church which has the tallest brick tower in Europe....More
Even though the church was being reformed, it was still very grandious. Highlights goe to the widely open main hall and huge crucifix. Sadly I couldn't climb to the top of the tower to check out the view
By luck we were visiting Landshut while they were having a festival held every few years to commemorate a historic wedding. The church is beautiful, has large historic stained glass windows and a very impressive tower.
Tallest brick tower in the world according to locals. An amazing feat of engineering. You can also go downstairs to view blueprints of the building and coffins from hundreds of years ago. The woodcarved doors are beautiful
The church itself inside with its high ceiling is impressive.

I do all my travel by rail and walking. Just walk from Bahnhof south (I always carry a compass) about 1.5 km until you come to the Isar river. There are two bridges over the river here, the one to your right will take you directly to Laendtor, through Altstadt to St. Martin's. Just look up - you can't miss St. Martin's! The other bridge is a ways to your left, goes across the island in the Isar (Hammerinsel) (have lunch at zur Insel Gasthof) where another bridge will take you to the south entrance to Altstadt, walk through old town to St. Martin's
