Open for Business

Imagine a place where the technologies of tomorrow meet the best of today’s lifestyle. Where start-ups meet international companies. And where passion meets business.

Welcome to Hessen in Germany

You will find this in the middle of Europe. In Germany. In the federal state of Hessen. We are home to over 13,000 international companies, with a diverse outlook fueled by people from roughly 190 different countries.

Join us on a journey through Hessen’s strengths and opportunities in our new brochure, ”Hessen & Frankfurt: Open for Business.“ In it, you’ll find out why Hessen is a top business location for international entrepreneurs and people aiming for new horizons. People just like you.

Our journey through Hessen starts with Frankfurt am Main and the Rhine-Main region. This area is a leading financial center and international transport hub, a global exhibition location and trading center, and a home for innovation, culture, and science. As such, it attracts businesses of all sizes and from all sectors.

Next, follow us to Central Hessen, where large numbers of companies in the optics, pharmaceuticals, and medical industries have settled. And where the region’s unique education infrastructure is equally outstanding.

Our next stop is North Hessen, where you’ll find innovative global market leaders from the mobility, decentralized energy, and health sectors. Did you know that North Hessen – which includes Kassel, the ”documenta city” – is one of Europe's top ten innovative regions?

Discover the ”Hessen way of life“ on our journey. This is shaped by the diversity in our state. More than 20 percent of all companies in the city of Frankfurt are foreign-owned. They enrich this business location with their expertise and cultural influences, giving living and working here an international flair.

Of course, the brochure also shows you how we can help your company succeed in Hessen. Be it with additional market data, advice on EU funding and collaboration programs, or consulting services for your relocation process.

This is just a short glimpse of Hessen as a business location – there’s much, much more to discover. Take a look at 075-20 Hessen Trade & Invest ... (
