The community of Ansfelden still covers an area of 31.33 square kilometers. The municipality is located at an altitude of 289 meters in the political district of Linz-Land in the federal state of Upper Austria and comprises 5 cadastral communities: Ansfelden, Fleckendorf, Kremsdorf, Nettingsdorf and Rapperswinkel. the village of Haid is not a separate cadastral municipality, although it is where the largest concentration of people takes place in the smallest of spaces in the entire municipality.
For this, Haid appears again in the villages or districts of the municipality on the southern outskirts of Linz on the Danube. The 14 districts are called: Ansfelden, Audorf, Berg, Fleckendorf, Freindorf, Fürhappen, Grabwinkel, Haid, Kremsdorf, Moos, Nettingsdorf, Rapperswinkel, Vordermayrberg and Weißenberg.
The municipality of Ansfelden is part of the Upper Austrian central area, connects to the cities of Traun and Linz in the north, to Pucking in the west, to Neuhofen and St. Marien in the south and to Sankt Florian in the east.
As of April 2, 2008 the community had 16,186 inhabitants.
Haid can even refer to its own postcode: While the municipality east of the Krems river has the postcode 4052, Haid (for example, the area west of the Krems river) has its own postcode, 4053.
The community is intersected in an east-west direction by today's Autobahn 1 ("Westautobahn"). This motorway was already planned under Hitler and the first work to create the route took place during the Second World War.
There are motorway entrances and exits in the village of Ansfelden as well as in the village of Haid, whereby it should be emphasized that the one in Haid has been a temporary solution for many decades and the local mayor is unable to ban the infernal traffic from this Motorway feeder and to build an entrance and exit outside the densely populated town center of Haid.
The railway line of the so-called** “Selzthalbahn”, **which cuts through the municipality in a north-south direction and was already a little bit of importance during the Second World War, should also be emphasized.
The now insignificant train station in Haid-Rapperswinkel was primarily intended for the loading of prisoners/workers during wartime, who were then loaded into the large works of the then "Gau capital" Linz. During the time of the DP camp in Haid (post-war) the train station also played a role that should not be underestimated.
In 2008, the then mayor Walter Ernhard also lived in Ansfelden-Haid, who then took his own life because of the great burden of dealing with the war past of the camp in the Haid district. At that time Ernhard lived at Josef-Redleitner-Strasse 10. He felt he belonged to the Social Democrats of Austria, who are already voted out of office in large parts of the country and, thank God, hardly play a role politically in Austria - only in Ansfelden and a few other insignificant or important ones Municipalities of modern Austrian democracy still provide these "reds" with the mayor today.
The commune in question received certain modern institutions of the Austrian welfare state late, very very late. So it was only in the last few years that the poor were properly fed.
Although the famous composer Anton Bruckner was born in the Ansfelden district, the community has hardly produced any famous artists in the last few decades, and the same applies to the sports industry. After all, various cultural institutions enrich cultural life as a carnival guild themselves.
In terms of energy technology, the connections from the thinking of an all-encompassing Linz that existed during the Second World War still take hold. Even today, parts of the Ansfelden area still have telephone codes for Linz, and even in 2008 a large part of the water for households in Haid and generally in the community of Ansfelden was obtained from the Linz company „SBL“. The same applies to natural gas.
There is also a district old people's home on the site of the former camp in Haid; the Ansfelden district of Haid is home to two taxi companies and some bus routes.
There is one elementary school and more than one secondary school in Haid. Haid even has its own police station (figures on the actual crime rate are, however, strictly under lock and key).
