House to the Crown Prince

The House of the Crown Prince is a former palace in the historic old town of Landshut .

The stately three-storey building was built in the 15th century as a residence for the ducal councilor Martin Mair . In 1485 the ducal chancellery was established there. After the dissolution of the Duchy of Bavaria-Landshut and the reunification of Bavaria , from 1505 it served as a ducal or electoral government building for the Landshut Rent Office .

From the time the building was built, the Gothic house hall with reticulated vaults has been preserved, in which two keystones with the coat of arms of Martin Mair, a hat, and his wife Katharina Imhof, a mythical animal, can be seen.

In 1815 the house was converted into an inn. In memory of the Bavarian heir to the throne Ludwig I , who studied at the University of Landshut , the inn was named Zum Bayerischen Kronprinzen .

The facade was designed around 1780 in the classicism style. Above the portal is the coat of arms of the Bavarian Elector Karl Theodor , on the portal wings medallions showing his portrait and that of his wife Elisabeth Auguste .

From 1912 to 2003 the Kronprinz-Lichtspiele were in the building.
