Burghausen lies in the Inn-Salzach region in the direct vicinity of Austria. The eastern expansion of the EU is placing Burghausen and its region further into the centre of Europe as an economic location. Some 230,000 people live in the Inn-Salzach region, 70,000 work here and over 17,500 of these jobs are in Burghausen itself.

High-tech, innovation and concentrated economic power converge in Burghausen. The town on the Salzach is one of Germany's most successful technology and business locations. Thanks to the proximity to the cities of Munich, Salzburg, Passau and Linz, renowned companies are to be found next door to each other.

And this is in an extremely attractive environment where there is much room for nature and an exceptional town with four varied facets presents itself:

  • The old town with its medieval-baroque urban building ensemble.
  • The new town with its pleasant modern architecture for living, trading and services.
  • The chemical and refinery site with fascinating views of a high-tech industrial architecture.
  • Burghausen castle as a genuine international attraction, at 1,051 metres one of the world's longest castle fortresses.

It is rare to experience such a balance of economic power, intact environment and historic and contemporary architecture.
