Velden once had a railway connection to Dorfen via Taufkirchen. In 1994 the tracks were removed and converted to a now very popular cycle track. Velden lies on the Bundesstraße B 388. Frequent buses connect Velden to Vilsbiburg, Landshut and Dorfen. The nearest Airport is Munich International Airport about 40 km to the southwest.
In the center of Velden is St. Peters church. It was built in two steps around 1450, newly renovated around 1990. Its 64m high tower is a main sight of Velden.
Velden also features an open-air museum with many sculptures of Georg Brenninger (born in Velden - later worked in Munich) for example the "Apoll" or the "Bergpredigt", also two fountains by the same sculptor can be seen in the center of the town.
In 1985 Bavarian Television filmed parts of the TV-Series "Irgendwie und Sowieso" in and around Velden. (Actors Ottfried Fischer, Elmar Wepper, Bruno Jonas and others)
