In 1418 Ludwig the Bearded laid the foundation stone for the New Veste, in whose center the New Castle rises. With the new residence, the Herzogkasten, the old castle of Ingolstadt, lost its destiny. Now the ducal society resided in the new empire, whose equipment served less the edification than the defense: 17 ornately decorated cannons testify in the courtyard of the dimensions of the former arsenal. Two of the oldest of these exhibits from the Bavarian Army Museum are a pair: the double cartoons from the years 1524/25 named "Scherer" and "Schererin". "He" weighs 9,690, "she" 9,395 pounds.
The Neue Schloss now houses the Bavarian Army Museum, an exhibition of historic weapons, armor and pewter figures. The Bavarian Police Museum in the tower Triva on the southern bank of the Danube in Klenzepark belongs with its collections also to the Army Museum. Festive and cultural events take place in the historic flag hall of the New Palace, for which a floor below in the so-called Dürrnitz offers food and drink.
