Welcome to Neufelden!
At the first documentary mention in 1217, Neufelden (then Velden) was already a market and had to have a longer development behind it. A hem road – called "via regia" (Königsstraße) in a document – which led from the Danube next Ottensheim through the Mühlviertel in the direction of Bohemia, crossed the Großer Mühl below Neufelden. Here, the peninsula-shaped plateau of today's market area served as a resting place and night camp like no other place along the "via regia".
The strikingly beautiful baroque house facades welcome visitors to the historic market neufelden, also known for its excellent and traditional gastronomy and as a regional school centre.
Neufelden has a rich history and a special flair. The old market is surrounded by a charming hilly landscape. Whether you want to use one of the numerous sports facilities or simply attach special importance to gastronomic specialties – you are definitely right here. In the midst of a largely untouched nature, the angler enjoys trout fishing in the crystal-clear Großer Mühl, where you can also walk along the more than 1000-year-old Pürnstein Castle. Neufelden is traffic-calmed - bypass road with highest road bridge in Upper Austria. Since 1990, Neufelden has been the location of an HTBLA for automation technology and operational informatics.
History shaped the market and Neufelden has gained its special flair from this - it has become tranquil and you feel comfortable here.
