The economic region

“Landkreis Ansbach”

Flourishing economy in a romantic landscape

The district “Landkreis Ansbach” is a region of dynamic growth in the West of Central Franconia and home to 58 municipalities, 3 universities of applied sciences and more than 4,500 businesses.

The large population with below-average unemployment figures demonstrate that in Bavaria’s largest administrative district, a flourishing economy is not at odds with a beautiful landscape.

Furthermore, the close links to the economic region of Nuremberg-Fürth-Erlangen with its vast potential of qualified skilled personnel are a great advantage.
