Landkreis Havelland: Havelland district – Shaping the future

The Havelland district is an attractive, open-minded and confident part of the metropolitan region of Berlin-Branden­burg. Thanks to its tightly woven traffic network, it functions as a connection to neighbouring German metropolitan regions and European growth centres. The core business zones lie in the Rathenow/­Premnitz area as well as along the A10 motorway and B5 federal road between Berlin and Nauen. Here, in the Berlin-West freight village, road, rail and water­­ways merge into a hub.

The technically and scientifically oriented universities of the Berlin metropolis, the state capital Potsdam and the regional centre Brandenburg an der Havel cover the need for skilled staff and make sure that science and research integrate with business. Thanks to the favourable traffic location as well as the combination of natural life and nature preservation, family-­­friendly conditions are linked to attractive jobs. The touristic value of the unique natural environment, including Brandenburg’s largest nature park (Westhavelland), is further enhanced by an interconnected, historic cultural landscape.
