St Martin's Church, Landshut
Built of rose-coloured brick in the 14-15C, the church stands out above all due to its exceptional elevation. The tower slims to an octagon and reaches a height of 130m. The exterior of the church is adorned with tombstones. The well-lit interior shows a fine unity of design. The octagonal pillars, deceptively fragile in appearance, bear the 29m-high vaults in a single thrust. See the Virgin and Child by Hans Leinberger on the altar on the south side.
