Welcome to the Stadtmuseum Burghausen!

About our museum

In Burghausen’s town museum, an exciting journey through time awaits you on three floors! You’re invited to experience first-hand how the rich dukes of Bayern-Landshut lived and feasted here in the late medieval period. How about giving a virtual joust a try, lance in hand?

If you’re fascinated by art, you’ll discover forms and brushstrokes of times past and present. Be it ingenious baroque paintings and sculptures or romantic and modern art.

Perhaps you would like to know more about Burghausen’s turbulent history? Past centuries become alive when you hear and feel the stories of the people who left their mark on this town.

With completely new permanent exhibitions, we offer a unique interactive museum experience. Discover history with all your senses!

All texts in our permanent exhibitions are available in English and German.

Your visit

You will find parking spaces right in front of the castle entrance (Curaplatz), as well as an underground parking lot at Marktler Straße. It’s roughly a 15 minute walk to the museum.

After walking through Burghausen castle, you’ll cross the final bridge and enter the inner keep. Turn to the right after passing the gate and you can’t miss us!
