As beautiful as a fairy tale, as lively as jazz

Burghausen is an ancient ducal town on the glittering river Salzach, the Alpine river forming a natural border to Austria. The well-preserved late-mediaeval historic centre invites you to stroll around and linger in the city with its colourful, richly decorated “Inn-Salzach style” buildings and tall facades.

Directly behind the narrow alleys spans the longest castle in the world, with its 1,051 metres of walls, battlements and turrets. Lined up like a pearl necklace are six wonderful castle wards, each with countless stories of their own to tell. Our tip: Plan a guided tour of the castle or visit the historical castle festival in July.

The city has made as much a name for itself for its annual “Burghausen International Jazz Festival” as for its traditional festivals and events, and its theatre, cabaret and floor shows. Take a look at the city’s event calendar and secure entry tickets for when you visit us and Burghausen!
