Plan a half day to visit this historic site, built on a ridge overlooking the town. The river Salzach is also seperating Bavaria from Austria. The castle is one Kilometer long and is in excellent condition. Its less a tourist attraction and more a museum. Besides walking through a live-in castle, with moats, draw bridges and dungeons, it has 2... 更多
This is truly a hidden gem known to the locals but off the beaten Tourist track. It lies smack on the Austrian-German border and you can cross a 100yard bridge. This place was heavily fortified and these still remain intact 2000 feet above the town. The views are magnificient and well rewards the effort of climbing up a gradual slope... 更多
Don't imagine something like a medieval European war castle because of the name beacuse it is a lovely and long (claimed tho be the longest) castle with some traditional houses in it. Some of the houses are still in use! And some are transported to museums or exhibitions. This castle is build on a hill which sees from one side... 更多

One floor of the castle is furnished as it would have been during the middle ages; the other two floors have exhibits of art and tapestries. Don't miss the... 更多
The castle is the longest in the world so for that reason it is worth a visit alone. The views from the top of the castle are very picturesque looking over the old town of Burghausen with the river Salzich and the Austrian border in the background.
Though it is not mentioned in Tripadvisor, the Castle celebrates once a year during summer the finest middle ages tradition costumes and way of living. Quite impressive and an amazing put on a show. I suggest you book yourself for the weekend and enjoy. 12 Euros entry fee. You won't regret it.
Fascinating castle built on the hill over looking the town. This is the longest castle in the world at 1km in length. A series of buildings make up an intriguing place to explore, while enjoying a pleasant walk. Amazing views. Free parking is available and the entry cost to castle is reasonable.
I read that this is the longest castle - it dates waaay back to the 12th century. It's a long walk through the complex from the relatively current part of the castle complex back to the 12th century part. Some people have apartments in the complex. There are a few gift shops and restaurants there as well. Beautiful views of... 更多
