Burghausen stands out among traditional medium-sized centres as well as considerably larger towns in Bavaria with its impressive facts and figures. As a thriving business centre in southeast Bavaria, Burghausen exudes a strong appeal towards neighbouring Austria and the surrounding districts of Upper and Lower Bavaria.

€500 million in net wages annually

With around €900 million in annual staff costs, the Burghausen economy generates net wages amounting to a good €500 million. This benefits not only the town’s inhabitants themselves but also the entire surrounding region of 50 km and more and is reflected in above average purchasing power and hence a flourishing trade and business community.
