Fürstenfeldbruck is the district capital and enjoys a prime location on the banks of the River Amper between Augsburg and Munich. Rows of colourful town houses line the main street and the market square. The narrow lanes and the pretty gravel banks of the Amper invite visitors to linger a while and soak up the atmosphere. Some of the main landmarks are the old town hall, the parish church of St. Magdalena dating back to 1764 and the pilgrim church of St. Leonhard. The Café Brameshuber building was the birthplace in 1813 of Ferdinand von Miller, who cast the Bavaria statue in Munich. As well as exuding all the flair of a typical Upper Bavarian town in the Alpine foothills, Fürstenfeldbruck boasts an excellent infrastructure and is the ideal centre for making day trips to the Five Lakes Region and the nearby Bavarian capital of Munich.
