Archaeologists have traced human presence in the Straubing area going back to the Neolithic age. The Romans also had a presence here over four hundred years beginning around 14 BC. As Roman authority waned, they were eventually replaced by a local tribe, the Bavarii.
In 1218, the Duke of Bavaria, Louis I Wittelsbach, created a new town center for Straubing. Called New Town (Neustadt), this is the main town center for Straubing today.
