The Pfalzgrafenschloss Neumarkt, also known as the Neumarkt Residence, forms the centre of the castle district in the old town in Neumarkt in the Upper Palatinate and today houses the Neumarkt District Court in the Upper Palatinate. It was built in its present form by Count Palatine Frederick II in the middle of the 16th century. It is listed as an architectural monument under the file number D-3-73-147-45.

2. Burgstall Stauf Vorburg
Stauf or Staufenberg Castle is the remains of an abandoned medieval castle. It sits above Stauf, a district of Newmarket in the Upper Palatinate region, on the Peak Plateau of Staufberg. There is little historical information about castles in the late Middle Ages. The castle itself has no architectural structure, only the circular wall surrounding the whole plateau and the powerful cross-sectional moat dividing the peak plateau are still visible. The late medieval castle, however, is likely to have been built on the site of an older fortification. Today, the former castle is registered as a ground monument D-3-6734-0038 "Medieval Castle Stables" by the Bavarian Monuments Conservation Office.
