With this brochure, Wirtschaftsförderung Wetterau GmbH would like to present to you the merits of the Wetterau district as a business location in the north of the Rhine-Main area. It also displays important information about other fields of interest concerning the district ranging from employment opportunities to housing and living. Established during the regional reform in 1972, over the past three decades the district located in the north of Frankfurt am Main has become an excellent commercial location. Due to its high residential and recreational value it is a place where people like to live as well.
Unlike than many other districts in Germany the Wetterau has a continuously growing population now totalling 300.000. According to forecasts of recent surveys the Wetterau district will be one of the growth regions in Germany. Not only the population rate, but also the economic rate in the Wetterau is growing. Thanks to its excellent traffic infrastructure, including the motorways A5 and A45, the most dense railway system in Hessen, the close proximity to the Frankfurt Rhein-Main airport and adjacent to the metropolis of Frankfurt am Main, trade and commerce have developed excellently over the past 30 years.
Furthermore, unemployment in the Wetterau district is quite low, compared to other districts in the country. Plus, it holds sufficient space for settlement of all kinds of sizes and quality levels while the prices for real estate and the tax rates are much lower than those in the neighbouring metropolis of Frankfurt am Main.
