Since the Middle Ages, Schärding's position on the banks of the Inn allowed a flourishing trade in salt, wood, tufa and marble. The Wittelsbach family, masters of the town almost constantly from 1248 to 1779, built a castle here on a rocky spur. It was destroyed when a fire ravaged the town in the 18C, but visitors can still admire the castle wall and gate, as well as the Silberzeile, a row of colourful houses (16C-19C) formerly occupied by the town's wealthy merchants.
