Go Travel and See Neumarkt in Upper Palatinate, Bavaria, Germany

Let's go travel and see the world again! I guess we will be visiting Germany again. This time we will visit Neumarkt in der Oberpfalz (Upper Palatinate). Its neighboring cities in Germany include Ingolstadt, Nürnberg and Regensburg. It has a population of about forty thousand. This city of Germany has a lot to offer to its visitors and tourist both young and old.

Some of the interesting sites in this place include the old city and its walls, Wolfstein Castle, St. Johannes Church and other historical churches here, the City Hall in Neumarkt where you can find a picture below and some other more. You have everything you need in this city from shopping to entertainment, outdoors, restaurants and some other more. Here are some pictures we took from this city.

GEOGRAPHY
Neumarkt lies on the western edge of the Franconian Jura, nestled in a valley. The municipal region reaches as far as the Bavarian Jura to the east. The Neumarkt valley drains to the north through the Schwarzach River, a tributary of the Regnitz, eventually flowing into the Main, and to the south through the Sulz, a tributary of the Altmühl, which eventually flows into the Danube. The Ludwig Canal cuts through the area from North to South, bridging the European water divide. The elevation varies from 406 meters on the Beckenmühle River to the north, to 595 meters in the vicinity of Fuchsberg; as a reference, the elevation of city hall is given as 423 meters. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neumarkt_in_der_Oberpfalz
