Culture of Landshut. Places to visit - old town, temples, theaters, museums and palaces

The Town Hall is notable for its spectacular facade decoration, it is still used for holding ceremonial meetings and gatherings. Guided tours of the Town Hall are organized almost every day, its central hall is also a permanent venue for musical concerts and theatrical performances.
