County of Fürstenfeldbruck

Pleasantly situated on the north edge of Upper Bavaria's "five lakes region", the county of Fürstenfeldbruck – the region of the future – is an extremely attractive place to live, do business and enjoy culture.

 

The tradition of judicial and administrative rights vested in the major former abbey Fürstenfeld was probably what clinched the decision of Max I Joseph, King of Bavaria, to create the county of Fürstenfeldbrück by royal decree in 1823. Set between the two main traffic nodes and trading centers Munich and Augsburg, home to about 208,000 people and covering roughly 43,500 hectares, this county is the second most densely populated in Bavaria. It is one of only two Bavarian counties selected as model venues for Agenda 21, featuring outstanding energy projects in particular. Recently, the regional and climate protection management units also began playing a part in plotting the county's sustainable development.

The legacy of the region's varied geology is a charmingly diverse array of countryside. At its extremities, the county extends for 25 km in a north-south direction and for 34 km from east to west. Spacious moors such as the Ampermoos are characteristic features of what is known as the "Brucker Land". The region's formative river course is the Amper. A marvelous selection of leisure and cultural activities, including the Mammendorf open-air swimming baths, lake and youth camp, the Jexhof and Furthmühle museums, Fürstenfeld Abbey, three large houses of culture, pristine natural countryside that serves as local recreation areas and literally hundreds of clubs and associations, add up to a very good quality of life indeed. The eastern end of the county reflects an urban structure with modern residential areas, while the western end is much more rural.

Especially in the manufacturing and service sectors, small and medium-sized companies in particular apply innovative strategies, meet high technical standards and are thus well able to compete in the international arena. Very low unemployment and highly qualified jobs are defining attributes of this location. The A8, A96 and A99 freeways and the B2 and B471 national highways, more than 100 km of county roads, an optimal cycle path infrastructure, three commuter rail (S-bahn) lines and a very tightly meshed local public transport network (including some 40 bus lines and an innovative public off-peak, on-call taxi service covering set routes ensure that the county of Fürstenfeldbruck remains excellently connected at all times.

The region is well endowed with modern facilities such as a modern hospital, an integrated emergency service control center, cutting-edge waste management companies and a wide and singularly diverse social network featuring all kinds of offerings for young and old. In education, the county's future prospects could not be better thanks to seven high schools, four junior high schools, one technical secondary school, one vocational secondary school, one technical college, two development centers, three music schools and a broad range of adult education services.
