Region with Opportunities

Upper Bavaria: guarantee for prosperity and high standard of living

characterized by industrial facilities, but instead is among the most attractive natural surroundings in Bavaria. And this only an hour's drive from Munich and Salzburg.

The GENDORF Chemical Park is part of Bavaria's ChemDelta. The full bandwidth of the industry is concentrated in this important chemical region: mid-sized companies and global players, producers and service providers. The companies in the Bavarian ChemDelta employ a workforce of roughly 20,000 employees who generate more than EUR 10 billion in annual revenues. Specialized training and continuing education facilities along with a large number of universities within a range of 100 kilometers turn the region into a chemical competence center of European rank.

From the GENDORF Chemical Park it is only a hop skip and jump to the Alps and to the Chiemsee. The region between the picturesque rivers Inn and Salzach also features cultural highlights such as Altötting and Burghausen – life is good here also after hours. It is only 50 km to Salzburg, and 100 km to Munich. Yet, the difference with regards to the cost of living and housing availability could not be greater!

The region surrounding the GENDORF Chemical Park is a paradise for families. In spite of its proximity to the metropolitan regions of Munich and Salzburg, rents and land are still affordable. Life is tranquil in charming villages like Mühldorf, Altötting and Burghausen. Their intact historical parts of town and shopping districts do not only provide the necessities of life, but also no shortage of flair. Kids can still grow up untroubled, in the city every bit as much as in one of the surrounding villages.
Parents in the region need not be concerned about waiting lists for childcare facilities. From Burgkirchen, Emmerting, Altötting to Burghausen, the communities surrounding the GENDORF Chemical Park have plenty of childcare facilities. Ranging from kindergarten to high school, from special needs schools to music schools, a wide range of educational facilities are only a few kilometers away.
Anyone who enjoys spending their recreational time in nature or simply lives an active lifestyle will find the region to be all they could ask for. Nature preserves along the Alz, Inn and Salzach rivers beckon for extended hikes, while climbers will find plenty of opportunities indoors as well as in the nearby Alps (only about a 30 minute car ride away). These are also ideal conditions for mountain bikers and skiers.
In addition to the rivers, a number of swimming lakes turn the region into a water paradise that seeks its equal. These are on top of the indoor and outdoor swimming pools that are also in plentiful supply. A special highlight: the Wöhrsee in Burghausen. The longest castle in the world towers high above the lake. The body of water at one point was part of the castle's defensive fortifications, making the Wöhrsee one of the few places where one can explore the middle ages while swimming.
If you enjoy concerts, city life, and culture in all their facets, then get ready! The cultural calendar in the region has plenty to offer. There are the concerts at Castle Tüssling. A never-ending stream of national and international music stars like Elton John, Joe Cocker, Simply Red, Bryan Adams or Tim Bendzko perform here. Year after year, the International Jazz Week draws the biggest stars from the scene to Burghausen – along with thousands of Jazz fans from all over Europe. Those who enjoy watching cabaret can find all the big names at the Mühldorf Haberkasten.
One can dander in the incomparable historical old towns of Altötting, Mühldorf and Burghausen and enjoy the long Bavarian summer. Proud historical mansions, the longest castle in the world, secluded river promenades, any number of cafes, and restaurants with sun terraces. This is the relaxing way to enjoy urban life – completely free of the metropolitan hustle and bustle.  And for those who miss the big city glamor in between: Salzburg is only a half hour drive away, and Munich can be reached in about an hour.
