 +"St. Martin'​s Kirche"​ - view from the Trausnitz Castle, Landshut by the Isar, Germany. The photo was taken from an open window within St. George Chapel which is inside Trausnitz castle. Date:April 3, 1988.\\

 +The Trausnitz Castle, built by the Bavarian Duke Ludwig in 1204 serving as a stronghold and residence to the Duke's court, overlooks the Isar river settlement known as Landshut. ​ Inside the castle, the "​cabinet room" features an original painting of Wilhelm I and his wife.  In another, three middle age wall sized tapestries hang on the twenty foot high walls. ​ These brilliantly colored tapestries depict historical experiences of Otho.\\
 +
 +Further inside the castle there is a private chapel named for St. George where a larger than life size, hand-carved crucifix hangs in the center of the chapel. ​ The chapel was beautified with many hand-carved stone adornments. ​ The colorful and intricate statue of St. George was carved of wood.\\
 +
 +Because of its strategic location, breathtaking views of the church of St. Martin and surrounding town of Landshut can be seen from several rooms inside Trausnitz castle. ​ The best view in town of the Isar river can be seen standing next to the Wittelsback Tower along the castle walls.\\
