The old town of Neuburg is wonderfully preserved and has survived all the wars and catastrophes of past times. A visit to Neuburg is a stroll into the age of the Renaissance.

The cycle path leads over the Danube bridge with the Nepomuk statue into the city. The magnificent castle presents itself picturesquely on a hill above the Danube.


Through the upper gate you enter the old town
