The Location

THE LOCATION

DESIRABLE NEW HOME

Neuss as a location offers a true alternative to either living in the countryside or the state capital next door. It is fairly compact with shops located along its main high thoroughfare, narrower alleyways and streets offering cafés, restaurants and a variety of stores. Faces reflect the broad ethnic mix of its population of some 165,000 residents, which makes Neuss the largest urbanisation in the western part of the Lower Rhine Region, Niederrhein.

The large inland harbour situated on the west bank of the river Rhine forms a gateway to the world for import and export. Outlying business parks with a strong mix of national and international corporations benefit jobs and the town’s economic prosperity.
