Plätte boat rides

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.
