Wirtschaftsförderungs-Gesellschaft Rhein-Lahn mbH (WFG): Rhine, Lahn and Taunus … topped off with two World Heritage sites

In the County of Rhine-Lahn, living, work and pleasure unite to form a single attrac­­­­tive whole. This county situated be­­­­­­tween the Rhine-Ruhr and Rhine-Main met­­­­­­­­­­­­­­ro­po­­l­­itan areas is characterised by high moti­­­­vation and low unemployment. Its most famous “offspring” include the inven­­tor of the Otto engine, Nicolaus Au­­gust Otto, and the world-famous Lore­­ley. They both repre­­sent the strengths of the Rhine-Lahn triangle: innovative family businesses and tourist attractions. Add to this illustrious names such as Emser Pastillen, Leifheit, Staatlich Fachingen, Kaiser-Back­­formen or Marksburg, the two UNESCO world heri­tage sites Upper Mid­­dle Rhine Valley and Limes, the Rhein­­­steig trail – and, last but not least, the wine.

An attractive cultural and natural landscape, from the peaks of the Taunus to the valleys of the Rhine and Lahn, leaves plenty of space for small and medium sized busi­­nesses in the trade, service and industrial sectors, as well as for peo­­ple looking for relaxation in the form of hik­­ing, cycling, ca­­­­noeing or spa holi­­days, or excitement at the Rhein in Flammen (Rhine in Flames) and Emser Blumen­­korso festivals. With fo­­­­­­rums such as “Busi­­­­­­ness Reception”, “Busi­­ness Start-Up Day” and “House of the Future”, the county’s economic promotion agency is forming a productive cooperation network for com­­panies and those looking to establish companies or relocate to the area.
