Castle courtyards

Burghausen Castle is with a total length of a little over 1,000 metres one of the longest castle complexes in the world. It is divided up into five courtyards, which were originally all protected by moats, portcullises and drawbridges, and with their fortified walls, gates and towers and the service and residential buildings for court officials and craftsmen, set the scene for the massive buildings of the main castle. The courtyards are numbered and described according to the castle description of 1573, starting with the main castle and moving northwards, in other words from the inside to the outside.
