Extra activities for your conference

We are happy to put together a wide range of extra activities for your conference.


The guided tours in the castle and the old town are fun and thrilling, tracing their fascinating history.

The various tours are a perfect complement to and agenda item for your conference. Be transported to another world and revel in the stories of a thousand years of the Burghausen castle and old town.

See the best side of Burghausen – with a boat ride on the Salzach. A boat ride  on the Salzach reveals the town from a beautiful new perspective. On the wooden boats called „Plätten“ previously used to transport salt, the “white  gold” was transported from the salt mine at Hallein near Salzburg to  Burghausen in the Middle Ages.
After embarking at Tittmoning or Raitenhaslach, you can glide softly through the charming landscape of the Salzach Valley. Approaching Burghausen, an  unforgettable scene comes into view – the grand castle complex looming protectively over the picturesque old town.

Particular highlights are the musical boat rides, for example with jazz or Bavarian “ Danzlmusik”, which complement the standard boat rides on selected dates or by request.


Hammerschmiede Burghausen

On request, you can book an unforgettable adventure tour of the oldest working forge in Europe. For around 90 minutes, be taken back to the Middle Ages, a time when weapons were produced under the Dukes of Bavaria. 

On this journey through time, see and experience the various working methods as well as the blacksmith's tools and how they operate.

A host of techniques are demonstrated, and in the team forge, a custom workpiece is made as a souvenir of your visit to the Burghausen forge.
