Palace Festival: the Neuburger Schlossfest
Every two years, during the last weekend in June and the first weekend in July, the Renaissance town of Neuburg an der Donau goes back to its princely past. The old town becomes the special stage of a sumptuous celebration organized as it used to be under the Count palatine Ottheinrich. Visitors can stroll among the stands of the yearly fair and admire court dances as well as thrilling knight tournaments. The hobbyhorse dance (Steckenreiter-Tanz) in the castle yard, the great parade and the firework show over the Danube are definitely not to be missed.
