Science meets industry

Research and business

With its central location in the university city of Heidelberg and at the heart of the Rhine-Neckar economic powerhouse, Bahnstadt provides an ideal environment for both business and science. Research institutes and science-based companies have optimum conditions to flourish in the new district. With its pioneering architecture, the Bahnstadt campus is a case in point. With around 6,800 jobs and almost as many residents, the district is also an attractive location for retailers and service providers – as is shown by the high demand for commercial premises.
