Business and Lifestyle
There is always something going on in Landshut
Indulge in a great variety of Landshutâ€™s cultural offers with countless events and let yourself be fascinated by the cityâ€™s scenes of rich history! Every four years takes place the greatest European historic festival of the "Royal Wedding" = "Landshuter Hochzeit", where nearly 2,000 citizens of Landshut celebrate with all the marvellous splendour of the late Middle Ages when the duke "Herzog Georg der Reiche" married the Polish Kingâ€™s daughter Hedwig in 1475.
Landshutâ€™s days of court music, days of literature, concerts, art exhibitions, museums and theatres enhance oneâ€™s lifestyle. With the opening of more theatres and museums, such as the museum of sculptures "Skulpturenmuseum", which includes the art collection of the worldwide known Professor Fritz Koenig, an important museumâ€™s concept of the municipality could be realised. A further step will be the renovation and expansion of the Ducal Residence, the first Renaissance palace north of the Alps, as a distinguished museum location. Imposing monuments and historic sights belong to the daily life such as the medieval city scenery with its most picturesque places.
All the numerous churches, monasteries and convents of the town are immeasurably rich in treasures with stucco works and painted ceiling frescos. The Landshut Dominican Church, as an example, is among the most magnificent creations of Bavarian baroque. The unique Basilica St Martin has the highest bricks steeple of the world and is – besides the Castle Trausnitz – one of the landmarks of the hilly region of Lower Bavaria which is also known as "Lower Bavarian Tuscany."
