Stadt Idstein

Idstein as a business location –Investing in a metropolitan idyll

In the flourishing environment of the metropolitan region FrankfurtRheinMain, Idstein has established itself as a great place to live and do business. Its well-developed educational landscape, com­­­­plete with university, as well as its local utilities and service institutions only en­­hance its reputation. The economic centre Frankfurt, its international airport Frankfurt/Rhein-Main and the state capitals Wiesbaden and Mainz are reached quickly and directly from Id­­stein thanks to the BAB 3 motorway (Frankfurt-Cologne) and two local train stations on the DB route between Co­­­logne and Frankfurt.

Neighbouring the centres of the Rhine-Main region while enjoying the tranquil­­lity afforded by the Rhein-Taunus natural park, Idstein offers leisure opportunities of all kinds, including two 18-hole golf courses, tennis and squash courts, the Tournesol adventure pool with spacious sauna, wellness and fitness area and even a rope course. The medieval am­­bience of the city and its various cultur­­al programmes, including open-air-high­­lights like the Idstein JazzFestival and Idsteiner Hexenmarkt, make it an excellent place to live and work.
