Türkenfeld (German literally: “Turkfield”) is a municipality in the district of Fürstenfeldbruck in Bavaria in Germany.

Geography[edit]

Türkenfeld is located about 14 km south-west of Fürstenfeldbruck and 37 km west of Munich. The municipality has incorporated the communities of Burgholz, Klotzau, Türkenfeld, Peutenmühle, Pleitmannswang, and Zankenhausen.

History[edit]

The first evidence of settlement is a burial place dating from Neolithic. In the area of Türkenfeld one can also find several Tumuli from about 1500 BC.

The first written reference is in the Breves Notatiae of 749 as "Duringveld".

During World War II, a subcamp of Dachau concentration camp was built in the town, though it was never put into operation due to construction failures.
