Vibrant business location

Business and trades

The vibrant interplay of living, working, business, and culture makes Bahnstadt an attractive environment for trade and commerce. The district is an outstanding business location with its excellent transport links, well-conceived infrastructure and well-qualified labor force – a hallmark of the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan region. Almost all existing commercial premises in the Bahnstadt district are already let. Planned projects and those under construction are meeting with a high level of interest among retailers and service providers and pre-letting rates are good. Over a dozen companies, including a research facility, bicycle store and bakery, have already settled in the district – and their numbers are rising. Various projects are currently under development.
