Urfahr-West includes nine municipalities.
- The region Urfahr-West is a strong crossover region between suburban agglomeration (Linz) and rural area (Mühlviertel) distinguished by tight contrasts - the plain country alongside the Danube and the steep hills of the hilly Mühlviertel - with strong potentials for recreation and nature-experience in green areas.
- The population has a high density of graduates and a high share of “neo-rurals”.
- The culture consists of less conventional heritage culture, but more living culture like innovative cultural events and architecture. The region has one of the most creative milieus in Austria at this level of “rurban” areas.
