Strong communities – strong culture

ARBERLAND draws its strength from a very special mixture: its landscape, culture and way of life. We, Bavarian Forest locals, know where our roots are. We love the region. We are proud of our natural and cultural landscapes, our customs and our traditions. Instead of anonymity, we choose life in strong communities. Our more than 1,000 clubs and societies are proof of the fact that we are there for each other, dependable and down-to-earth. In ARBERLAND, our social life is still intact. People know and appreciate each other and help one another. The district of Regen is a place where we call our neighbours by their first names and also meet up with colleagues outside work. Alongside this strong feeling of togetherness, ARBERLAND is also packed with culture. There are markets, folkloric events and the region’s age-old tradition of glassmaking, along with music, theatre and festivals.

ARBERLAND means More enjoyment in life, More quality of life and More culture in your life.
