Leisure tips

Burghausen will lift your mood and whet your appetite for history, culture and life!

Castle and historic city centre: Europe's longest castle complex - one kilometre of history, with museums, a meeting point for artists, a theatre academy and flats. And there is always the impressive Stadtplatz square, with its medieval buildings and splendid architecture, to marvel at.
Art and works of art: International Jazz Week is a highlight of the year, but traditions have a firm place in the city on the Salzach river. Burghausen also has much to offer for those who love to visit churches and museums.
Enjoy life: The quality of life in Burghausen is reflected, last but not least, in the broad variety of historic and modern festivals. But Burghausen is also a great place for simply relaxing. In summer, you can go swimming or canoeingin winter, ice-skating or curling. A raft tour on the Salzach is a great adventure.
