Hauzenberg is a municipality in the district of Passau, in Bavaria, Germany. It is situated 15 kilometres (9 miles) northeast of Passau.

In November 1936, Gauleiter Fritz Wächtler dedicated the Hauzenberg district house.[2] In June 1940, the local National Socialists organized a slide show titled Weltpirat England and U-Boot auf Kaperfahrt. Party leader Heilmaier seized the opportunity to announce regulations about how to deal with Polish farm laborers and prisoners of war.[3]
