About the city
Burghausen is the most populous and fantastic city in the Upper Bavaria district of Altotting. The city is part of the Inn-Salzach tourist region. Burghausen is an important industrial centre of the Bavarian Chemical Triangle and is known for its International Jazz Week.
Stretching on a hill between the Salzach River and Lake Wörsee, Burghausen Castle is an architectural masterpiece of the late Middle Ages. Its fortress wall is the longest in Europe. In the spring, thousands of guests gather in the castle for one of the largest jazz festivals in the world. Jazz music sounds in the squares and streets of Burghausen, which is why the city is often called the Bavarian New Orleans. All major Bavarian delicacies are served in Burghausen. Trendy is lake fish in a salt crust and maties - lightly salted fillet of young herring.
Thanks to the rapid growth of the new city in the course of industrialization, the old town has been preserved in urban unity. The colourful townhouses in the typical Inn-Salzach style are notable for their gabled walls and richly decorated façades. The city has a well-known medical centre for the treatment of cancer patients. Oncological Clinic Medias has more than 40 years of experience in chemotherapy and surgical treatment, attracting many patients from all over Germany.
A beautiful view of the castle opens from Lake Worsee. People come here from all over Bavaria. In the summer, travellers swim, and in the winter, they play curling and ice-skating. By Christmas, the shores of the lake are always decorated with wooden lamps. Therefore, in winter, the best time for a walk along the lake is in the evening, when the lamps are lit, and the atmosphere is genuinely fabulous. However, the longest castle in Europe and everything next to it will amaze the imagination at any time of the year.
