Trausnitz Castle can be seen here lit up at dusk along with the bell tower of St. Martin's Church; both of these tourist attractions are famous landmarks in the city of Landshut in the Bavaria region of Germany. The colours of the lights and the reflection of the buildings in the water give this castle and surrounding area a magical feel.

Trausnitz Castle is a perfect example of a medieval castle and really is a living historic monument. It was the home of the Wittelsbach family and served as their seat of power while they ruled over Bavaria. Duke Ludwig 1 built the castle in 1204 so it has survived much since those days. It is constantly restored however as it is so old, but the German government takes good care of the building so that it will stand for many more years to come.

The bell tower that can be seen reaching straight up in to the sky is the bell tower of Martinskirche, or St. Martin's Church in English. This is one of the most important buildings in Landshut and is not only the highest building in Bavaria, but is also the highest brick building in the world. The bell tower reaches up to 130.6 metres.
