The Neumarkt Region is known for its castles. For more information you can purchase a booklet. (Burgenführer, ISBN 3-920142.14.4) Unfortunately, you should understand some German because to my knowledge, no English version is available.
When I was young and lived in Nuremberg, I explored many of them at this time.
With Elizabeth we did not have enough time to see many of them. I wanted to show her more of this region which is so different to her favorite part with the Alps.
In Parsberg we visited the castle with its museum which was started by two teachers. It showed many things about this area. I had to do much explaining.
We relaxed by pulling of the road and enjoying plain nature. Elizabeth always discovered some wild flowers and little creatures to which she talked in English.
We did our own little "Kneippkur" by putting our feet in the fresh water of little creeks to stimulate our blood circulation. (Thank you pastor Kneipp>

The Hohloch close to Velburg - many thanks to "DALIBRI" and Wikipedia
Another exiting attraction is a drip stone cave, the "König-Otto-Tropfsteinhöhle" which is also located close to Velburg. The cave can be visited between April 1 and October 31. (guided tours only)
Elizabeth was fascinated but she was happy that the tour was not too long. I became convinced that she has claustrophobia. This was her second and last visit of such a place but I loved it!
In Thuringia I went without her.

Explore medieval Berching. Don't miss to go the "Main-Donau-Kanal". Check with the tourist office before you go wether you can participate in a boat trip. We missed that. Consider to stay in Berching - there is so much sightseeing to do.
