County of Rosenheim

Rosenheim is a place to fall in love with. Crossing the Irschenberg on the drive down from Munich to the Rosenheim region, it is easy to see why so many people feel privileged to live and work here.

 

The county of Rosenheim is the midpoint of a notional triangle extending from Munich to Salzburg to Innsbruck. Endowed with exceptionally scenic countryside and enriched by Lake Chiemsee, the "Bavarian sea", the region is as attractive as it is innovative. Countless international business success stories – Kathrein, Hamberger, Schattdecor, Marc O`Polo, Meggle and Süd-Chemie, to name but a few – and a host of other locally based companies in every conceivable industry provide conclusive evidence that "beauty and business" can enjoy more than just peaceful coexistence. The highly regarded Rosenheim University of Applied Sciences instructs over 5,000 students and is deeply integrated in the business community which it supplies with the required specialists.

Natural good looks and its plethora of sporting, recreational and cultural attractions have established the county of Rosenheim as a firm favorite among leisure seekers and vacationers in Germany. Mountains, lakes, forests, cycle paths, golf courses, tennis courts, downhill ski pistes, cross-country skiing trails, wellness facilities and swimming opportunities have something for every sports enthusiast all year round. All these outdoor activities are complemented by an exceptionally diverse array of high-quality cultural offerings – and that in a region that assiduously upholds local customs and traditions. Festivals are, for example, held in Herrenchiemsee, the royal castle that was never completed. Similarly, the magnificent inner courtyard at Amerang Castle is a popular venue for regular concerts, while Hohenaschau Castle plays a lead role in the "festivo" chamber music festival.

Scientific and research institutes are of fundamental importance to the strength of any economic area. In this region, the Rosenheim University of Applied Sciences is key in delivering a well-founded technical and commercial education. It is complemented by a raft of educational establishments, including the ift Rosenheim (the Institute of Window Technology), the LHK (a Rosenheim-based teaching institute for the wood industry and plastics technology), various vocational schools, the Alpenland Business School and a logistics competence center in Prien/Chiemsee (of which the county of Rosenheim is a shareholder).

Many companies from all kinds of industries operate very successfully in the county of Rosenheim. Designated commercial zones and the arrival of numerous firms have created new jobs and given a powerful boost to the county's economic development in recent decades.
