In the past few decades Landsberg has developed by means of well elaborated re-structuring measures from a city merely consisting of public agencies and garrisons to a versatile business site. The range of businesses in Landsberg is many-sided and balanced. There is a fine mixture of native trades and high-tech as well as of tradition and progress.

This zone is located to the north of the municipal area in the immediate vicinity of the A 96 freeway. Real estate prices and the trade tax factor are being held attractively low. In the future as well it will be the economic policy of the city to assure stability with respect to contributions and the trade tax and to support financial relief for businesses.
