**Abstract:** Among the different notions of area in a Minkowski space, those due to Busemann and to Holmes and Thompson, respectively, have found particular attention. In recent papers it was shown that the Holmes-Thompson area is integral-geometric, in the sense that certain integral-geometric formulas of Crofton-type, well known for the area in Euclidean space, can be carried over to Minkowski spaces and the Holmes-Thompson area. In the present paper, the Busemann area is investigated from this point of view.
