Landshut is a city in Bavaria (Germany) and lies in the center of Lower Bavaria (one of the seven administrative regions of the Free State of Bavaria). The river Isar runs through the city center. Landshut is about 45 miles northeast of Munich.
The city is well-known for its predominantly Gothic architecture within the historic city center, especially Trausnitz Castle and the Church of Saint Martin featuring the world's tallest brick-tower. It is also known for a festival celebrated every four years called the "Landshuter Hochzeit", commemorating the 1475 marriage of George of Bavaria and Jadwiga Jagiellon.
