Neubeuern Things to Do


    To visit the historic Town, the only way in, is through two old city gates. One gives entry from the south/east, and the other from the north/west. Once there, park the car and walk. After looking around the town square, then go for a walk around the small historic area, it is not very large, but is full of Lüftlmalerei [frescoes].I love looking at...


    As we were approaching Neubeuern, we could see a high hill with a Schloss overlooking the Town. We drove around until we found the road heading up to the Schloss. It is not what I expected, but a boarding and day school. About 220 student's call this their home during the school terms.After a look and a photo, we followed the road down the over...


    The parish Church of Immaculate Conception is another gorgeous building in Neubeuern. Located in the Historic town centre, it was painted a pretty yellow, and it too, had frescoes on the outside. It was begging me to come inside, and to see what more it had to offer! Well, there was more! It was beautiful inside too!Inside it was painted lemon &...


    What does Fairyland look like, surely like this, well that is what I thought when I walked into this beautiful square. It would have to be one of the prettiest villages I have ever seen!The market square is one of South Bavaria's most beautiful village squares. The houses and shops were all painted with the world famous wall paintings, called...

  • Tourist Office

    The tourist office is called Verkehrsverein. It is located in a beautiful building with a carved balcony and oriels and of course “Lueftlmalerei”. When we were there on 31st December the tourist office was closed but there were some leaflets in holders on the corridor wall. Outside there an information panel with accomodation information. And there...

  • Market gates

    There are two gates to enter the market square. The prettier in my view is the one leading towards the road to Austria. There is a separate gateway for the pedestrians and on the inside there is a board where the distances are actually measured in minutes rather than meters.

  • Interior of church

    The high altar was made by Joseph Goetsch. The late Gothic miraculous is from around 1457 and has been thought to be effective for many centuries. In 1498 there occurred a bell wonder and in 1512 a light wonder.The painting on the ceiling is about the shipping on the Inn river and was made in 1923/4 by the artist Anton Niedermaier. The baroque...

  • Parish/pilgrims church Mariä Immaculate...

    The bell tower dates back to the middle ages namely the 13th century. The upper bit of the tower is from the 15th century. The church itself was extended in 1630. In 1775/6 the choir was changed to Rokoko.

  • Burgfried

    This is the only very old building left of the castle. It dates back to the middle ages, around the 13th century.

  • Marktplatz (market square)

    This is certainly the main attraction in Neubeuern. The square is a triangle. The houses on the square are not that old because a fire destroyed them at the end of the 19th century. But the reconstruction and decoration was made beautifully. In the old days the masters of the Inn ships and the innkeepers lived here.

  • Wolfsschlucht

    The wolf gorge is actually the first local stone quarry. The fine quarzit was especially used for grind- and millstones. Over the time the gorge became about 300 meters long, 12 to 20 meters wide and around 30 meters deep. Later part of the south wall collapsed.

  • Castle

    Since the 12th century the castle changed hands many times and lots of new buildings were added including a chapel. The wife of the last owner opened a boarding school after his death and still today it’s a boarding school of excellent reputation with an international clientele. Unfortunately, the grounds are closed to visitors so one cannot enjoy...

    On our sightseeing day around the Samerberg and the Inn valley we decided to have lunch in Neubeuern.

    The restaurant is actually very old and traditional but changed hands only recently. Please have a look at the facade of the building as there is a scenes of the Inn shipping which shows the profession of the Stangenreiter. Those riders had long poles which they poked into the river to find the right route for the ships to take so that they don’t get stuck.

    The Stangenreiter is right at the market square. The restaurant is popular with locals and visitors alike. The interior is rather plain but comfortable and the atmosphere is good and the service was friendly and attentive.

    Favorite Dish: I ordered a Cordon Bleu which came with French Fries (Euro 7.90). Since I was cold I wanted a hot tea. These only come in the fancy version at Euro 3.20. I opted for the “Suesse Versuchung” which tasted lovely.

    The best way to reach Neubeuern is by car. Since Neubeuern is located on the other side of Inn river looking from the motorway, you may take a country road.

    You could use the motorway Rosenheim - Kufstein and cross a bridge across the Inn river. Or if you are travelling on the Salzburg - Munich motorway, you can use an exit before Rosenheim and take the country road towards Kufstein.

Neubeuern Local Customs

  • Lueftlmalerei

    The painted houses are just gorgeous. Whereas on the side of the castle the houses themselves vary in colour, the ones to the other side are mainly white.

  • Name plates

    In the church you can view old name plates at the back of the benches. They feature the names of local citizens, so each of them had their allocated spot to sit.

Neubeuern Off The Beaten Path


    After a lovely time in Neubeuern, we departed and headed along the valley floor, admiring the Mountains and scenery as we went. This is Cow country, and what did I see, but a Barn with some beaut murals of Cows. The farmer must like his cows so much that he had them on his barn as well as the real ones inside!I just had to stop and take that photo!


    FROM Neubeuern, we followed a marked scenic drive on our map, and headed to Schliersee and then Tegernsee. Lake Schliersee, is only a half hour drive from Neubeuern. Both of these lakes were nice, and it was quite busy with traffic. I can see this would be a popular area for summer holidays. Once again, there were more houses and buildings with...

  • Filialkirche Heilige Dreifaltigkeit...

    Altenbeuern was first mentioned in 788 as Ad Burones and is located at the old Roman road.From afar you can see the church of the holy trinity which was built in 1494. The church was changed to baroque style in 1650-55. If the church is open you may see a late Gothic carving of the holy trinity which shows three kings sitting next to each other.
