As the centre of a region of research acclaimed throughout the world, Braunschweig introduced pioneering technologies to the market in bygone times and established itself as an important centre of business early in its history.
Braunschweig is the second largest city in Lower Saxony in the heart of northern Germany and is located right at the crossroads of a number of major routes between Denmark – Italy/southern Europe and Poland/eastern Europe – the Benelux countries. The city's connections to motorways, the railway network and Hannover Airport guarantee good transport links for national and international destinations. Its excellent infrastructure is however only one of the many reasons for well-known companies such as Volkswagen Financial Service AG or Siemens AG to make Braunschweig their base.
Another strength of this ideal business location, besides the well-situated, easily accessible commercial districts, is the high quality of life offered by the city which is the focal point of a region with a population of almost one million.
The good climate for existing and newly started businesses is also a result of the excellent way in which business, science and education work together.
