Townscape[edit]

Neuötting has a town square in the unique Inn-Salzach style, including two towers at each end. During the Middle Ages it was an important trading town for salt and grain, and had its own mint. It was also a military base for the Bavarian forces to keep Mühldorf am Inn, a rival town under the control of the Bishop of Salzburg, in check. Places of note for visitors are the large Gothic church Saint Nikolaus, the town museum, and the recently improved town square, on which shopping and open-air dining can be done.

Trivia[edit]
