Firstly we will visit to the Burghausen Castle, which has a length of over 1,000 metres, is one of the longest castle complexes in the world. Burghausen Castle significance derives from its historical importance as a sovereign castle belonging to the Bavarian Wittelsbachs and its architectural standing as one of the most magnificent examples of late medieval fortifications. The massive stronghold was the most effective fortress in the country and embodied the power and representative ambitions of the Bavarian dukes. From 1255 to 1503 the castle was the second residence of the Lower Bavarian dukes, whose seat was in Landshut. As a safe family residence it served many different functions during this period: it was a court for the duchesses and the home of their children, and it was the residential seat of the ducal heir and his wife and of widows from the ruling family. The complex is divided into five large courtyards, which were originally all protected by moats, portcullises and drawbridges. With their fortified walls, gates and towers and the service and residential buildings for court officials and craftsmen, they set the scene for the massive main castle grouped around an inner courtyard which crowns its southern tip. Our next stop will be at Schärding which  is a storybook-pretty town on the Inn, with peaceful riverfront walks and a baroque centre studded with merchants’ houses.The city located directly on the river bordering Bavaria is especially known for the Baroque “Silberzeile” on the Oberer Stadtplatz. The Schärding merchants and tradesmen were so rich that they were able to invest their “silver” in the most marvelous facades near and far. There is no doubt that the people of Schärding created a gem in this way that has endured time and you will see it.The next our stop will be at Passau in the southeast of Germany is located at the Austrian border which is worldwide known as "The Three Rivers City". The earliest evidence of human settlement dates back to the Neolithic. Passau was part of the Roman Empire for more than 400 years. It became an Episcopal seat in the year 739 AD. Passau was an independent prince bishopric for over 600 years. Finally in 1803 Passau was annexed into Bavaria. The setting of the Old Town, created by Italian baroque masters in the 17th century, shows soaring towers, picturesque places, enchanting promenades and romantic lanes. In the heart of Passau on the Old Town’s highest point rises St. Stephen’s Cathedral, in which the world’s largest cathedral organ sounds. Sitting high above the rivers, the majestic fortress Veste Oberhaus on the Danube’s side and the Pilgrimage Church "Mariahilf" on the Inn’s side frame the city outstandingly beauty. Passau with its unique charm and its atmosphere is one of the most beautiful and spectacular German cities on the Danube. After we will return to Munich.
