Stadtmuseum Burghausen

Located in the world's longest castle (1051 m) in the bower wing of the medieval main castle.

The Burghausen City Museum is located in the world's longest castle (1051 m) in the bower wing of the medieval main castle. After the Bavarian-Upper Austrian Provincial Exhibition in 2012, the permanent exhibition of the City Museum was completely redesigned. History can be experienced by visitors of all ages over 900 square metres with many interactive and audio stations.
Insights into life at a princely court in the Middle Ages can be found on the ground floor. Duchess Hedwig of Bavaria-Landshut resided at Burghausen Castle from 1475 to 1502 with her large court. The pleasant life she led with hunts, tournaments and festivals is impressively recreated. Visitors can therefore be photographed in a medieval setting in suitably-tailored clothes. You can learn interesting facts about the fashion of that time, such as the "devil's window", at a media station. Games and tournaments were a leisure pursuit at court. Visitors can "bowl bones" or ride in a 3D jousting match.
A large section is also dedicated to the exciting history of Burghausen. Visitors can walk through the centuries like a picture book, starting with prehistoric finds which tell of early life in the region. From the beginnings of the city we move on to its heyday in the Middle Ages, through the salt trade, and then on to life in the capital and city of government. From the misery at the end of the 19th century, visitors also learn about the arrival of Wacker Chemie and its new era as an industrial city. A large section deals with the everyday life of Burghausen citizens during the National Socialist era. In the cinema hall that follows, various films tell the story of the last decades of the 20th century up to modern times.
