Herzogsägmühle is a community between the towns of Schongau and Peiting in the upper Bavarian region called `Pfaffenwinkel`. There is no difference in outer appearance between this village and other in the vicinity. It originated from five farms, serving as a labour colony for homeless men from 1894 on. Today, Herzogsägmühle consists of 900 residents and 350 hectares of land.
Life happens here just like in every other town, but no one is being left out of the community. There is no unemployment here; even severely handicapped persons take part in working life. Competent specialists are available for consultation, therapy, eldercare and other services. The aim of our Christian community is to offer an individual, self-responsible and -determined life for all. Herzogsägmühle understands itself as a place to live, offering help to the disadvantaged and disfranchised; it is a part of the `Diakonie´, the social services of the Protestant church. With our help for homeless, families and others we also care for the people in 5 districts around.
