Burg Donaustauf

The castle was constructed for Bishop Tuto of Regensburg between 914 and 930 A.D on the site of Celtic fortifications dating back to approximately 500 B.C.

Burg Donaustauf was long prized (and repeatedly attacked) because of its strategic location. From the top of the hill, soldiers armed with medieval weapons were able to control shipping and military movements on the Danube River.
