General Information
A municipality as Kollnburg has responsibilities which it must fulfil, and targets that it aspires to accomplish.

In addition to the targets that Bavaria and the state of Germany require us to fulfil by la, our greatest endeavour is the service to our citizens. By this we mean the transmission of information, extensive consultation, and friendly assistance for the people of Kollnburg. Therefore the administration of the community, as well as the creation of a liveable community, is the center of our actions.

The community Kollnburg would like to activate in the fields of culture, tourism, economy and community, meaning that it wants to promote the cooperation of the different fields through various actions, events and projects.
Our beautiful community should continue to develop itself from the inside out, taking into account the historically grown structures, cultural traditions and the progressive future.

The ultimate goal therefore is to establish the best possible coordination between the fields of tourism, trade, commerce, services, agriculture, culture, sports and district council as well as the bundling of budgetary and human resources to carry out affiliated activities with the highest possible efficiency, to optimally position our community.

We have already undertaken the first steps into this direction. With the formation of working groups for the areas of family, youth, seniors, disabled and city spokesmen we have started a citizen-oriented project.

Moreover, the continuous work of the people of Kollnburger within the community marketing does not only show in the stimulation of the liveliness of the city, but also pays off in the urban construction field: As a community with more than 600 residents, Kollnburg ranked no. 1 in September 2008 at the 23rd national competition “Our village has a future – Our village is beautiful”
We would also like to stimulate the sustainable development of the community through planned projects with the support of our citizens.

Crucial to the positive development of our community is the symbiotic relationship between us, the community and you, the citizenry.

Let us cooperate to jointly develop and organize – for a beautiful, liveable home
– our castle-village Kollnburg!

illage renewal
The 18-year-lasting village renewal of the Kollnburger village center was successfully completed in October 2008.

It began with the construction of 37 parking spaces between the kindergarten and Genobank as well as with the establishment of two village encircling hiking trails, the parish garden and the castle stable path.

In addition, numerous roads were redeveloped.
The first street renovation was the expansion of the Viechtach Street, which directly led along the cemetery wall. The people previously had to cross the road in order to water the flowers at the cemetery. Even the cemetery entrance was improved. A sidewalk and a parking lot for the cemetery visitors were created.

These projects were followed by the reconstruction of the Markstallerstraße, Burgstraße, Schulstraße, Bergweg, the village square, the church surroundings and the Kirchenweg. In the course of these street renovations the ailing water pipeline in the village was also renewed. In addition to all these measures numerous plants were placed throughout the village, upgrading Kollnburg visually.

With the help of the village renewal the schoolyard playground was also created more appealingly.

A major project was the expansion of the “South Entrance” to Kollnburg in 2007, which could be launched after lengthy discussions with residents and authorities and was completed in May 2008. To calm down the traffic the traffic control system of “right before left” was introduced.


This year the fairground at the new playground will get a new entrance path and will be regravelled.
Moreover, the restoration of the exterior façade of the primary school Kollnburg and the town hall square will be started.
