LandratDear International Guests! 

Welcome to the homepage of Neustadt a.d.Waldnaab County. 

Embedded into the Oberpfälzer Mountains, Neustadt a.d.Waldnaab County is located in the geographical center of Europe and can easily be reached due to an excellent infrastructure. It is one of 71 counties in the Free State of Bavaria and located in the Oberpfalz district. Located for many years along an impenetrable border, the region, with Germany’s largest border crossing station at Waidhaus, now offers a significant hub for the movement of goods between Western and Eastern Europe with all its business opportunities. The city and urban district of Weiden i.d.OPf. is located in the county and Grafenwöhr is the home of one of the largest training areas in Europe with a size of approx. 230 square kilometers.

Companies located in the county such as Witron, Pilkington, BHS, or Hueck Folien are global players in their fields. The fact that the majority of the county is located in the GA-subsidized area, offers investors a special locational advantage. The county’s economic centers are located in Eschenbach i.d.OPf., Grafenwöhr, Neustadt a.d. Waldnaab, Pressath, Weiherhammer, Windischeschenbach, and Vohenstrauß. 

Our beautiful nature park region also offers a large variety of nature and culture. The soft hills of the low mountain range whose landscape is dominated by green forests and the wonderful rural calm invite visitors to stay. Enjoy your vacation in the heart of the Oberpfälzer Forest. Bike through the landscape of the nature park on Bavaria’s longest bike trail located along a train route. Experience sheer hiking pleasure on the comfortable, high-quality trails of the Goldsteig Hiking Trail. Admire the deepest drill hole of the world and the highest drilling tower on earth. 

As you will see, Neustadt a.d. Waldnaab County is a wonderful home for the local citizens, an experience for all vacationers, and a modern business location on the threshold of new markets.  

I ask for your understanding that we could not translate all pages of our homepage. However, you will find more information in your native language in the “Tourism“ section.
