Mediterranean lifestyle

The people of Landshut love their city. The centre blossoms with the first rays of sunshine. Strolling through the old town, shopping, sitting in the stands during the Landshut Wedding, drinking coffee, sitting by the Isar, going out to eat in the evening or warming up with a punch in the huts set up in front of the restaurants in winter. All outside, of course!
