The Schloss Neuhaus is in Neuhaus am Inn right on the border with Austria on Innufer .

In the 14th century it was built on a rock by the Bavarian dukes to protect the Inn Bridge from Schärding . From 1750 to 1752 the renovation was carried out in the Rococo style , according to the assumption of a chronicler by master builder Johann Michael Fischer . The client was the President of the Court Chamber, Ferdinand Reichsgraf von der Wahl.

The castle experienced numerous changes of ownership. In 1859 it was purchased by the Princess Auguste von Auersperg for 9000 guilders from the Institute of the English Misses of Burghausen .

The extension built in the following years was connected to the old building in 1902/03 by the architect Johann Baptist Schott and master builder Capellaro through a neo-baroque church that served as a parish church until 1974.

The two tail gables on the side wings of the three-story castle stand out. The building has been used completely by the secondary school since 2011.
