A Gothic residential tower built by the city wall in the 15th century. Today nothing remains of the moat but remnants of the wall near the Ottoburg. Commissioned by Maximilian I, the Castle was named after the last Duke of Andechs, Otto VIII. The gray facade is brightened up by red and white shutters.
Although both the purpose and the owners of the building have changed frequently throughout the years, the Ottoburg has long housed an excellent restaurant.
The parlors with their cross vaults and stellar vaults are worth visiting. It is the oldest preserved building of Herzog-Friedrich-Strasse. In front of it stands a memorial to the Tirolean freedom fighters of 1809, created by Christian Plattner.
