The Caste is more than 1000m long and has an almost completly intact medievel attachment. Therefore it is one of the biggest and most impressive castle complex in Europe.
1255 the castle was built as a second residence for the lower bavarian dukes and their wives.
Duke Georg the Rich rebuilt the castle with six courts and thus it became the strongest fortress in the late Middle age.
The State Gallery includes late gothic panel paintings and a monumental painting cycle of the bavarian history.
The viewing platform on the roof offers the most impressive panorama.
