Meeting point for business

Viersen District offers perfect connections – logistically and economically. For example, the heavily populated Rhein-Ruhr region, the major cities Düsseldorf and Cologne and the inland ports Duisburg, Krefeld and Düsseldorf/Neuss are a mere stone’s throw away. The sea ports Rotterdam and Antwerp, as well as the regional and international airports, are not far either.

There are many places for holding meetings and conducting business in Viersen District: the Niederrhein Technology Center in Kempen, the superior hotels in the region and the historical Krickenbeck Castle in Nettetal.

Once the work has been done, the relaxing landscape of the Niederrhein region is the perfect place to wind down, whether you prefer sporty activities on one of the two 18-hole golf courses in Willich und Nettetal, or taking it easy with a gentle bike ride in the lush natural surrounding

Coveted industrial space and premium projects.

Viersen District is an extremely attractive location for all sorts of different companies. The various industrial parks offer both small and medium-sized businesses as well as international companies made-to-measure plots of land from 1,000 to 150,000 m² at attractive prices starting at € 35/m². VENETE, the industrial park near the Dutch border in Nettetal, the MACKENSTEIN industrial area in Viersen and MÜNCHHEIDE in Willich are other examples of first-class industrial sites.

VENETE boasts impressive figures: the area has 770,000 m² overall with a net building plot surface area of about 600,000 m². One of the reasons why the MÜNCHHEIDE industrial zone is popular is its proximity to Düsseldorf International airport, which can be reached from Willich in less than 10 minutes. The MACKENSTEIN industrial area in Viersen also has an excellent infrastructure. Measuring about 100 hectares, it is currently being expanded again and provides plenty of room for ideas and innovation. There are also many interesting prospects in Viersen District for project developers, investors and service providers, for example in the Becker steelworks: the former steel works in Willich were converted into an industrial park with a central water axis and many green areas. Several existing buildings, especially in the area of logistics, can now be used for other purposes.
