Economy in Burghausen
“Burghausen Chemical Diamond”
Salt used to be the source of Burghausen’s wealth, but the chemical industry has become central to the town’s economy over the last 100 years. This is symbolised by the “Burghausen Chemical Diamond”, a signature feature for a town which despite its size is one of the most prosperous municipalities in Bavaria.
With 11,000 people employed in the chemical industry, Burghausen is the most significant location in the “Bavarian chemical triangle”, in which around € 8 billion are generated with chemical and petrochemical products every year.
