Longest Castle Complex in Europe

16:50 / Posted by Licia / comments (0)

Janett, I got your card for Europe tag! :D and I LOVE it! =] The card shows the longest castle complex in Europe, Castle Burghausen. @_@

With a length of over 1000 metres (!!!!) and almost all of its medieval fortifications still intact, Burghausen is one of the most impressive and largest castle complexes in Europe. From 1255 on it was the second residence of the dukes of Lower Bavarian and the court of their consorts.

In the late Middle Ages Duke Georg der Reiche (George the Rich) turned the castle with its six courtyards into the strongest fortress in the country.
