Trip Report April in Bavaria

Jump to last reply

My brother and his wife joined my wife and I for a train tour of towns in Franken (Franconia) and Nieder-Bayern (flat lands of Bavaria). The weather forecast for the first two weeks of April was good and it proved true.

Our first stop from the Munich Airport was Landshut for two days. We caught the Bus 635 to the Freising train station and then a regional train to Landshut. Everything went smooth, though it took a bit of looking to find the bus stop at the airport.

We stayed in the annex of the Himmel Cafe right on the Isar River. Old building but nicely remodeled rooms. Good breakfast and an excellent lunch. During our stay, we had a decent supper at the Gasthof zur Insel and an even better one at the Hofbräu Haus.

Landshut has an attractive Altstadt with many Baroque building fronts. We enjoyed the walk up to the castle, Burg Trausnitz, and the views out over the city. Landshut proved to be about right for two days while we recovered from jet lag. There was plenty to see in a small enough package not to wear us out. Town is a bit of ways from the train station to lug heavy suitcases.
