The steeply gabled Renaissance exterior of the "Golden Sun" fronts a hotel of great charm and comfort. It stands in the center of town, near all the sights. Its dining options are a paneled, beamed restaurant; a vaulted cellar; and a courtyard beer garden, where the service is friendly and helpful, as indeed it is throughout the hotel.
YOU SHOULD KNOW Wi-Fi can be slow and patchy.
Rooms are classic and comfortable, with light tones and warm curtains, although they are not overly large.
Room 309 has a cute view of the rooftops and steeple of the nearby church.
Modern grey bathrooms are kept sparklingly clean and in working order, despite the olde worlde feel of the rest of the hotel.
A traditional welcome in traditional settings continue the charming feel of the hotel.
The restaurant's menu follows the seasons and toes the "quintessential Bavarian" line, with pork roast, steamed or smoked trout with horseradish, white asparagus in spring (usually accompanied by potatoes and ham), and venison in the fall.
Guests can also enjoy drinks in the above locations.
The hotel is right at the heart of charming Landshut, the home of the Landshut Wedding medieval pageant.
Famous for its giant schnitzels and great prices, Heilig-Geist-Stüberl Gaststätte (4-minute walk) is great for those with big appetites. Or for more modern, international fare, try Tigerlilly Supperclub (3-minute walk).
For a relaxed, traditional glass of wine, try 1280 Weinbar (4-minute walk). Or head down to the river and enjoy the atmosphere, brews and views at the Biergarten zur Insel (6-minute walk).
WHY WE LIKE IT
A charming and authentically Bavarian spot in a pleasant town, right at the heart of the action for the Landshut Wedding and a great jumping off point for further exploring the area at any time of the year. The restaurant is very traditional, and all the better for it.
