The parish church Neumarkt an der Ybbs is located on Wiener Straße northwest of the market square in the market town of Neumarkt an der Ybbs in the Melk district in Lower Austria . The Roman Catholic parish church consecrated to St. Nicholas of Myra belongs to the Deanery Ybbs in the diocese of St. Pölten . The church is a listed building ( list entry ).


In the 13th century the church was a branch of Ybbs . A brotherhood of the Seven Sorrows of Mary was mentioned in a document in 1378, dissolved during the Reformation and re-established in 1666. In 1529, 1532 and 1683 the church was sacked by the Turks. In 1661 there was a church fire. In 1733 the northern sacristy was renewed. Parish vicariate again since 1755. In 1758 the tower was raised. In 1988/1989 the northern sacristy with the oratory and the north wall of the nave were removed for the extension. The late Gothic organ loft with an octagonal pillar and a star rib vault was demolished and installed in the Sasendorf branch church . From 1990 to 1992 an extension was built in the north according to the plans of the architect Wilhelm Zotti .

The essentially Romanesque late Gothic church building with a choir and a nave and two southern chapels was oriented to the north from 1990 to 1992 with a modern extension. The Romanesque church building from the second half of the 12th century and the beginning of the 13th century was discovered in 1988 when the north wall of the nave was exposed as a small Romanesque arched funnel window in the rubble stone masonry. Around the middle of the 14th century the church was enlarged with a Gothic choir. At the end of the 15th century and in the first quarter of the 16th century, the nave was rebuilt, whereby the vault and the organ gallery are no longer preserved. The core of the Gothic west tower is older.


The organ was built by the Upper Austrian Orgelbauanstalt St. Florian (1994). The four bells were cast in 1949.
