Puchheim is a town near Munich in the district of Fürstenfeldbruck, in Bavaria, Germany. It has about 20,000 inhabitants.

Puchheim is divided into two parts: the old and rural part called Puchheim-Ort and the new part of Puchheim (Puchheim-Bahnhof) that was founded when the S-Bahn (a quick train commuting to Munich) was built. Before that there was one of the first civil airfields in Bavaria, which was later used as a prisoner of war camp during World War I.[2] The area around the camp was dried up by workers from the POW camp, so that houses could be built.

The old part of Puchheim is even older than Munich.[citation needed]

Puchheim is well connected to the regional and national traffic network by S-Bahn München S4.svg (S4) and Autobahn (A 8, A 99)
