Neuss is a young city with historical roots. Conveniently located on land and waterways since the Roman times, it combines a busy trade center with an idyllic atmosphere. Alongside modern infrastructure and sprawling industrial zones, traditional shopping streets and inns characterize the cityscape, creating Neuss' very own dynamic.

Experience Neuss in all its diversity. From its museums and cultural institutions to its numerous sights and sports facilities to gastronomic highlights and events. Whether it's a city trip, a day visit or a business venture - Neuss is always worth a visit. Worth seeing are also the Quirinusmünster, the so called „Zeughaus“, the oldest house in the city, and the Obertor (upper gate), the last of what used to be six massive gate castles of the medieval city fortifications. We have something to offer for everyone - from nice hotels to excellent restaurants and worthwhile excursion destinations.

We are looking forward to welcoming you!



Obertor (Upper Gate)

The “Obertor” (upper gate) is from the 13th century, flanked by two round towers and the only one of the former six town gates still standing. It is also the site where the siege by the Burgundian Duke Charles in the year of 1474-75 took place. For its brave resistance, the city of Neuss received the privileges of a Hanseatic city.
