Kusel District

The Kusel District - an Attractive Economic Region and Living Environment


For a long time the Kusel District's economic structure was characterized by agriculture. In the meantime, some deep-rooted changes have taken place as agriculture certainly still determines the natural area image as ever, but has lost its significance as an industry. Instead, with overall diminishing structural problems, a change towards the production, trade, and services sector is apparent.

As an economic area the Kusel District is increasingly gaining significance.
