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
The gate dates back to 1530, and in the middle is the city coat of arms. It shows Prince Ottheinrich and Prince Phillip on hobbyhorses
St. Peter's Church (early baroque)
Cafe Altstadt - where I spent the night.
At the end of Amalienstrasse is the castle (on the left is the Hofkirche)
In the Renaissance inner courtyard they are already rehearsing eagerly for the annual knights' festival.
The next morning we take another look back at the city castle before we follow a long straight road to the hunting lodge Grünau.
