About this picture

The district of Dingolfing-Landau is located in the western center of the Bavarian administrative district of Lower Bavaria .



The district of Dingolfing-Landau is crossed by the Isar from west to east . In the north of the Isar is the Aitrachtal and to the south the Vilstal . All three rivers are right tributaries of the Danube , which flow outside the district area. The landscape in the district is flat and partly hilly and reaches heights of up to 500 m in the south. The geographical center of the district was determined between the places Mamming and Bubach.

Neighboring counties

Neighboring districts are the Straubing-Bogen district in the north, the Deggendorf district in the east, the Rottal-Inn district in the south and the Landshut district in the west .


Regional courts

The area of ​​today's district of Dingolfing-Landau belonged to Bavaria very early on. In 1803, the Landau an der Isar district court was established in the district , which from 1808 belonged to the Lower Danube District . The regional courts of Dingolfing and Osterhofen were established in 1838 from parts of its territory . All regional courts then belonged to the Lower Bavaria district .

District Offices

In 1862, in the course of the separation of justice and administration at the lower level, the district offices of Dingolfing and Landau were created in addition to the previous regional court districts of the same name, with the regional court of Dingolfing ceding some communities that from then on formed the judicial district of Arnstorf, which was assigned to the district office of Eggenfelden. It should be noted that "District Office" in the Bavarian administrative language corresponded to today's district office, while "District", like today's administrative district, was the middle administrative level. The Osterhofen area was part of the Vilshofen district office.


On January 1, 1939, as everywhere in the German Reich, the designation district was introduced. The district offices became the districts of Dingolfing and Landau adIsar.

As part of the regional reform in Bavaria , the new Lower Isar district was formed on July 1, 1972 . Became its constituent parts

coat of arms

Coat of arms of the district of Dingolfing-Landau.svg
Blazon : “Split under the shield head with the Bavarian diamonds; in front in red a silver lion, which rises on a silver side four-mountain, in the back in the notch section three times divided by red and silver. "
Reasons for the coat of arms: The coat of arms combines elements from the coats of arms of the earlier districts of Dingolfing and Landau an der Isar. The lion on the side four-mountain stands for the Landau area. It is a talking picture from the coat of arms of the Counts of Leonberg, who had a great influence in the area between Isar and Inn. The multiple division in the notch section corresponds to the apocryphal shield image of the Counts of Frontenhausen, who ruled the Dingolfing area until their extinction around 1226. The Bavarian diamonds are reminiscent of the Wittelsbach house.

Rail transport

The former district town of Landau received its first station on the Plattling - Neumarkt-St.Veit - Mühldorf route in 1875 through the AG der Bayerischen Ostbahnen . In neighboring Pilsting, the Bavarian State Railways branched off the line up the Isar to Landshut - Munich from 1880. It is part of the Landshut – Plattling railway line . The line between the Plattling and Pilsting station had already been opened on October 15, 1875, including the Landau (Isar) station ; on May 15, 1880, the section from Pilsting via Dingolfing to Landshut Central Station went into operation.

From Landau, the state local railway to Arnstorf started in 1903 with a branch line opened in 1915 to Kröhstorf . Both railways lost passenger traffic in 1962/64; likewise in 1969/70 the Pilsting - Neumarkt-St.Veit section on the Mühldorf-Pilsting railway line . The network of passenger trains has thus shrunk from 95 km to 36 km; these only stop at the three train stations in Dingolfing, Landau and Wallersdorf in the district.

Road traffic

Through the district from southwest to northeast the federal highway 92 , which leads from Munich to Deggendorf ( federal highway 3 ). The federal road 20 ( Straubing - Burghausen ) runs almost in a north-south direction through the district with a connection to the A 92 and Landau.
