Hessen is an attractive location for international investors, their employees and their families. They are not only welcome as guests, but can genuinely feel at home here – because internationality is a way of life in Hessen. This is particularly evident at events like the Newcomers Festival, held for newcomers and resident international employers and communities alike, helping people settle in.
The numerous international companies with employees and families based here bear witness to Hessen’s internationality, and so does the state’s popularity as a travel destination. With over 5 million overnight stays per year, Hessen lies above the federal average with figures still rising.
The world meets in Hessen. An international community encourages economic exchange and brings cultural enrichment to daily life. Hessen offers a large number of international primary and secondary schools to choose from.
The question of a suitable school for employees’ families is just one point often accorded high priority by foreign companies in search of new locations. Apart from excellent transport links, the region has a dense network of foreign chambers of commerce, embassies, consulates, trade associations, cultural institutes, clubs, restaurants and shops. This range of institutions and services allows the many communities living in Hessen to feel quite at home.
