The "pearl on the Inn", the small town with its colourful gothic houses in the bight of the River Inn, with its pergolas, narrow romantic alleyways and mysterious inner courtyards.
The life of the town has been further enriched, as a centre of trade and culture in the region. While the old parts of town are characterized by many local businesses, trades and shops, its gates have now opened to admit world-wide renowned businesses which have settled and developed here. Together with the many services offered, prosperity is almost guaranteed in Wasserburg and its surrounding. A recommended Classic Car Tour from Munich to Berchtesgaden leads past Wasserburg.
Wasserburg is one of the most historic towns of Old Bavaria – somewhat older than Munich, a good 50 km to the west, continually fought over by the bavarian nobility and, up to the 16th century, on an equal footing with larger cities. The privileges afforded by this enabled the salt trade to flourish right into the 19th century. Lying on the junction of the main overland route with the main water route, Wasserburg became the most important trade centre with the Balkans, Austria and Italy, a means of attaining power and wealth for the shipping owners and merchants.
