Neumarkt in der Oberpfalz is located directly in the Bavarian Jura and offers a wide variety of excursion destinations right in the city, but also in Nuremberg, Regensburg, the Altmühltal Nature Park, Franconian Switzerland, the Franconian Lake District and the Bavarian Forest. Within a radius of 1 to 70 kilometers you can expect many landscape and cultural trips with very different focuses and experiences.
The location of the Catholic pilgrimage church above the town of Neumarkt is only minutes away from our house. There you are approx. 586 meters high above Neumarkt and have an incredible view over the city. Would you like a spiritual walk? Next to the road, through the district of Höhenberg, a Way of the Cross with 367 steps leads up and down from the church. Once you have arrived at the bottom, the historic old town awaits you with many sights, such as the late Gothic town hall, a largely preserved medieval city fortification, the former Count Palatine Castle and the Ludwig-Danube-Main Canal.
Do you want to stroll extensively? In Neumarkt’s old town there are countless small shops offering something for every taste. If you are out and about in bad weather, the “Neuer Markt” shopping center right in the city center invites you to stroll or watch a movie. You can find more information on this directly on the “Neuer Markt” website.
Take the time to visit the “Historischer Reitstadel” cultural center, where e.g. Concerts by well-known soloists and ensembles take place. You can find more information about this on the website of the Neumarkter Konzertfreunde or the city of Neumarkt.
For art connoisseurs and those interested in modern art, Neumarkt offers the „Lothar-Fischer-Museum“, which is now more than just an insider tip.
Do you enjoy historic automobiles of the extra class? In the unique Maybach Museum there is a spectacular collection of cars of this brand.
We attach great importance to good beer on the Alm, which is why we recommend the Neumarkter Lammsbräu beer. We would be happy to organize a brewery tour for you in the local biological brewery. Organic because only non-GMO and organically grown raw materials are used for the entire Lammsbräu range. A visit is definitely worthwhile.
Neumarkt is located in the middle of the two metropolises Nuremberg and Regensburg. Thanks to our good connection to the A3 motorway, you can reach both major cities from here in just a few minutes by car. Alternatively, you can also switch to public transport, which will take you to your destination at a comparable speed.
