Dreifaltigkeitsplatz and Herzogskasten Feb 03, 2017
Dreifaltigkeitsplatz (Trinity Square) is one of the oldest parts of Landshut and originally belonged to the grounds of the castle. The most striking building is the large yellow Herzogskasten, a medieval storage building. Citizens had to pay their taxes in kind here. The natural goods were then stored in here as supply for the castle's inhabitants. The facade is once more a 19th century refurbishment. Nowadays the building contains a post office.

The small park next to Herzogskasten has a monument of Duke Ludwig the Rich, ruler of the Duchy of Bayern-Landshut in the second half of the 15th century.

The "square" is actually a triangle. The short side is Herzogskasten and the connecting street to Altstadt. The two other sides have old houses with pretty gables in pastel colours just like most of the old town. Part of it is a parking lot, the street in the middle is quite busy, so watch out for traffic. At the "point" of the triangle, a side street to the left leads up to Trausnitz castle and to the bottom of Ochsenklavier stairway.
