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.
