  The Ottoburg
by sim1

On the corner of the Altstadt, close to the river Inn, you can find the Ottoburg. Here is a little history of the Ottoburg from the website : http://www.tiscover.at/

The Ottoburg is a Gothic residential tower built by the city wall in the 15th century. Today nothing remains of the moat but remnants of the wall near the ?Ottoburg?. Commissioned by Maximilian I, the castle was named after the last Duke of Andechs, Otto VIII. The grey facade is brightened up by red and white shutters.

Although both the purpose and the owners of the building have changed frequently throughout the years, the ?Ottoburg? has long housed an excellent restaurant.

The parlors with their cross vaults and stellar vaults are worth visiting. It is the oldest preserved building of Herzog-Friedrich-Strasse. In front of it stands a memorial to the Tirolean freedom fighters of 1809, created by Christian Plattner.

And as it is a restaurant, we decided that we had to try it! So let's go inside and have some lunch!
