Flossenbürg is a municipality in the district of Neustadt an der Waldnaab in Bavaria in Germany. The state-approved leisure area is located in the Bavarian Forest and borders the Czech Republic in the east. During World War II, the Flossenbürg concentration camp was located here.
The first reference of Flossenbürg's existence was in 948. Its castle was the Hohenstaufen's stronghold. Later, Flossenbürg belonged to the duchy of Neuburg-Sulzbach and came to the country court of Floß in the electorate of Bavaria in 1777. Today, it is located in the administrative region of Oberpfalz.
Flossenbürg was the terminus of the Floß–Flossenbürg railway line that branched off in Floß from the Neustadt (Waldnaab)–Eslarn railway and is served today by a bus route from Weiden via Neustadt an der Waldnaab to the Silberhütte Cross-Country Skiing Centre.
