Events, thematic tours and scene games take place regularly at Schloss Landshut. Here you can find out which events and occasions are current during the current season. There is sure to be something interesting or fairytale-like for you. We are looking forward to your visit.

Worth knowing about this year's season

This year's special exhibition produced by the Castle Foundation focuses - again with Melusine in mind - on the "beautiful ladies and noble gentlemen" of Old Bern. The life of Thüring von Ringoltingen, the lord of Landshut and narrator of Melusina, opens a window on the turbulent times of the late Middle Ages.
The exhibition is complemented by an extensive accompanying programme of guided tours, lectures by renowned experts and readings. And we meet the secret of the "beautiful Melusine" again - in the enchanting puppet theatre of Susi Fux.

The monthly evening tours at Landshut Castle are all about hunting and wild animals. On the evening of 25 May, they will be kicked off by the wild species that have recently become established in our nature. On the guided tour on 30 June, we will hear stories that take place 'under the skin and feathers' of the castle's impressive animal preparations. Those who want to know how the head of a slaughtered game is turned into a trophy will be present at the guided tour in July. The evening tour in August will be devoted to large wild birds and their hunting behaviour, and in September we will learn why wild animals arrive at the wildlife station near the castle injured or ill, how they are cared for there and how they are released.

At the open-air film evenings on 26 and 27 August in the castle courtyard, we will take a journey through time and to distant lands, to meet the extinct mammoths and wild grizzly bears in remote northern Alaska. (Reservation recommended via 031 350 72 88 or by email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)

The castle days in July and October have more surprises in store for you - from "Melusine" and her era to the hunting crafts of today!

Please note, that all our events are in German. In case of questions or remarks, the guides speak English and/or French.
