The listed old town
"The town looks as if it has been cut out of an old German painting and set down here." Adalbert Stifter
Due to the rapid growth of the new town in the course of industrialization, the old town was preserved in a unique urbanistic cohesion and is a special ensemble under monument protection.
The colorful town houses in the typical Inn-Salzach design are remarkable because of the gable walls and rich facade decorations.
The town also offers plenty of accommodation. A modern youth hostel and some splendid star hotels and Bavarian guesthouses offer numerous opportunities to stay overnight in Burghausen.
