Neustadt an der Weinstraße lies in the centre of the oldest tourist route in Germany, at the gates of the Pfälzerwald forest, below Hambach Castle. It is known for its famous wine estates such as Idig, Ölberg and Mandelgarten.


Gothic Collegiate Church

Gothic Collegiate Church – the town's landmark (14th century), with a striking dividing wall between the Catholic and Protestant sections and the biggest cast iron bell in the world. The frescoes discovered when renovation work was carried out in 2013 are splendid  – medieval graffiti at its finest.
