Une introduction à Burghausen
Burghausen is situated in Upper Bavaria on the Salzach river, close to the Austrian border. The city is famous for its castle, Burghausen castle, which is the longest castle in the world.
The oldest document mentioning the town dates to 1025 but archeologists found out that the area was inhabited at least since Bronze Age. In the Middle Ages, the town was famous for its salt trade. However, after 1594 and a salt monopoly it experienced an administrative and commercial decline becoming an impoverished provincial town. Burghausen could only recover in 1915 with the establishment of Wacker Chemical Enterprises.
Burghausen’s most famous attraction is the Gothic Burghausen castle. With its 1051 meters, it is the longest castle complex in the world and was founded even before 1025. The city offers many attractions for architecture and art enthusiasts as the St. Jakob parish church from 1140, 16th-century Renaissance Regiergunsgebäude (Government building), and 14th century Neo-classical Townhall.
