Towns in East Bavaria Museum for Historical Maybach-cars in Neumarkt Neumarkt in der Oberpfalz Art, history and cuisine are top priorities in the old residence town of Neumarkt, with its Pfalzgrafenschloss (Castle of the Counts of the Palatinate) and Wolfstein Castle ruins which soar above the town. This can be demonstrated by the fact that four breweries exist in Neumarkt, some of which can also be visited on a tour. A brewery museum displays some of the centuries-old equipment. The museum for historical Maybach-cars is unique: 20 out of approximately 160 of the world´s most valuable luxury cars are exhibited here. It is, therefore, the largest collection of its kind worldwide. Between 1921 and 1941, the vehicles were only made upon individual order. Also worth mentioning is the Weißwurst Academy, where you can learn how to make your own Weißwurst (traditional Bavarian sausage)!

At the second largest public festival in Bavaria Christmas Market in Straubing Straubing The history of Straubing goes right back to the time of the Celts and the Romans. The many striking patrician houses and the magnificent churches from the Romantic and Baroque Periods are very impressive. The famous painter Albrecht Dürer designed one of the glass windows in the Basilica of St James (Jakobskirche). The Roman treasure in the Gäubodenmuseum is unique; here you can admire nearly 2,000-year-old Roman face masks and protective head plates for horses, among other things. Every year, well over one million visitors many in Bavarian costume flock to Straubing to attend and celebrate extensively at the Gäubodenfest, Bavaria's second largest festival after the Oktoberfest in Munich.
