Neuss as a location offers a true alternative to either living in the country or the state capital next door. It is rather compact with shops located along its high street and narrower alleys offering cafés, restaurants and a variety of stores. Faces reflect the broad ethnic mix of its population of just over 150,000 residents, which makes Neuss the largest town in the western part of the Lower Region (Niederrhein).

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

Sleeping Over

A fair selection of hotels is available in and around Neuss. From business and four stars to small and cosy guesthouses, a room can be found to suit most needs. The neighbouring city of Düsseldorf offers a selection of five star hotels in various districts.

Taxi in Neuss

Taxis in Neuss are modern and clean, mostly Mercedes and always beige. And compared to many other countries, they also offer good value for money. If there are none driving past to hail, the numbers to ring are either +49 2131 222 222 or +49 2131 880 088. A ride will then arrive fairly quickly.

Economic Development Neuss

The Office of Economic Development is the perfect agency to assist foreign companies and small businesses to fulfil their investment plans. Whether new to Germany from overseas or relocating, full support is on offer to set up business in this dynamic location. Support is offered through an experienced team of advisers.
