hello Neumarkt!!

Neumarkt is where I attended German language last 2006-2007. I have to drive to this place daily from Monday to Friday to attend the so-called German Integration Course. I also have some friends in this place whom I visit once in a while. This is also the nearest city where I go shopping or simply roam around and enjoy the scenery around. More about Neumarkt in der Oberpfalz below; have a great week ahead to all!! take care everyone and hope you had a good start of the month!!

This photo was taken in front of the new Rathaus or City Hall in Neumarkt in der Oberpfalz and this Monument was created by Lothar Fischer, a known sculptor in this place.

Neumarkt is a district in Bavaria, Germany. It is bounded by (from the north and clockwise) the districts of Nürnberger Land, Amberg-Sulzbach, Schwandorf, Regensburg, Kelheim, Eichstätt and Roth.

HISTORY
In early medieval times the region was ruled by the counts of Wolfstein, while the city of Neumarkt was directly subordinate to the emperor and hence independent from the Wolfstein family. In the 14th century the counts of Wolfstein, as well as the city of Neumarkt, became subordinate to the Palatinate, and in 1628 to Bavaria.

The district in its present shape was established in 1972, when the city of Neumarkt lost its status as an urban district and was incorporated into the district.
