Negova (German: Negau) is a village in the hills to the west of Gornja Radgona in northeastern Slovenia.[2]

Negova Castle is a castle immediately to the north of the main settlement. It is a complex of buildings that are 16th- and early 17th-century extensions of the original castle built in 1425. Very few of the original furnishings and traces of wall paintings in the castle chapel are preserved.[3]

The parish church in the settlement is dedicated to the Nativity of Mary and belongs to the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Maribor. It was originally a 16th-century Gothic building, but was rebuilt in 1710 and has 19th-century additions.[4]

The Negau helmet was found nearby.
