Where you can invest, experience a great deal and simply be at home.

Ober­hau­sen, with more than 210,000 resi­dents, is loca­ted right in the cent­re, in the midd­le of Ger­ma­ny, in the midd­le of NRW and in the midd­le of the Ruhr Regi­on. And this town is also sur­pri­sin­gly dif­fe­rent – a lot of green, tons of cul­tu­re and gre­at shop­ping opti­ons. It’s also very spor­ty and has a gre­at deal of fri­end­ly peop­le who live and work here.

Inno­va­ti­ve com­pa­nies come toge­ther with a high­ly func­tio­nal infra­struc­tu­re and effi­ci­ent net­works, offer attrac­tive employ­ment and find well-trai­ned and moti­va­ted employees. With a total of more than 5,000 com­pa­nies, you’re in the very best socie­ty here with your own com­pa­ny. Our town ser­ves as the head­quar­ters for both lar­ge cor­po­ra­te groups as well as small to medi­um-sized com­pa­nies from a wide ran­ge of indus­tries.

16 motor­way con­nec­tions ensu­re that the town is easi­ly reached from each and every direc­tion. Ober­hau­sen also has an ICE and Euro­ci­ty rail­way sta­ti­on and the Düs­sel­dorf Inter­na­tio­nal and Dort­mund air­ports are easi­ly reached in less than 30 minu­tes. Navi­gab­le river and canal net­works and con­nec­tion to Europe’s lar­gest inland har­bour in Duis­burg gua­ran­tee fast con­nec­tions to all over the world.

Familiar with Oberhausen?

 

40 per­cent of the Ober­hau­sen urban area con­sists of green are­as, which is why peop­le call it the ‘Park­stadt Ober­hau­sen’. This means a lot of space and count­less pos­si­bi­li­ties for rela­xa­ti­on, sport and all types of recrea­ti­on.

 

On foot, on a bike or even boa­ting along the canal: Ober­hau­sen is the place whe­re cul­tu­re lives, ran­ging from the Gaso­me­ter Ober­hau­sen, the Lud­wig Gale­rie, Thea­ter Ober­hau­sen and the Ebertbad to the Sta­ge Metro­nom Thea­ter, the Tur­bi­nen­hal­le, the König-Pil­se­ner Are­na and several smal­ler sta­ges. It’s also why the town is a high­ly popu­lar desti­na­ti­on for visi­tors and tou­rists.
