Moosburg is a town in the Landkreis Freising region of Bavaria in Germany. It is the oldest town between Regensburg and Italy and lies on the Isar River at an altitude of 421 meters above sea level. It had a population of 17,275 inhabitants in 2005 in an area of 44 squared kilometers. It is easily reached by Autobahn 92 and regional train from Munich. It is admired with commuters to Munich, Freising and the Munich airport. There are significant industries in the town with chemical, electrotechnical, food processing and machine plants. There was a Benedictine Abbey in Moosburg in the 8th century and a bunch of dwellings and artisans sprang up around it. Duke Heinrich der Lowe started the construction of the Kastulus Minster in 1171.
In the 12th century, Moosburg was established and received its first charter in 1311. Its walls and moat were completed in the 15th century. The town reached its peak during the early 16th century. In 1599, the Benedictines moved to Landshut and reduced its importance. Sieges and plundering during the Thirty Year War started the decline of the town. In 1702, a fire reduced half the buildings to ashes. Moosburg suffered degradation during the War of the Austrian Succession and the Napoleonic Wars. Another disastrous fire in 1865 resulted in the downtown area being redeveloped in the style of the late 19th century.
Moosburg is considered a place of best geographical environment and can trace its origins to prehistoric times. Moosburg, justifiably so, enjoys a very positive reputation with worldwide travelers, and is one of the most visited place.
