Quick and Direct Connections
With the surrounding areas Rhine-Main to the south and the Rhine-Ruhr region to the north, the two leading industrial and commercial areas in Germany and Europe are directly at the doorstep of Koblenz. Whether by car/lorry, railway, ship or airplane, it is only 100 kilometres (60 miles) to these major salesmarkets and supply networks.
Koblenz is well integrated in to the supraregional transport network with two major motorways running north to south (Cologne-Ludwigshafen and Cologne-Frankfurt) as well as an east-west motorway intersection (Trier-Koblenz). In addition to the autobahn network, there is a well-developed network of major national trunk and secondary roads, among others, along the Rhine and Moselle rivers.
Let’s forge ahead
As a national railway hub, Koblenz receives 600 passenger and freight trains, day in and day out. Passengers from EuroCity and IC/ICE long-distance express trains as well as regional commuter trains enter Koblenz main railway station daily and at peak times in 1-minute cycles. The industrial estate/area of the Rhine Harbour (GVZ=Centre for Freight Traffic) has direct rail connections. On top of that, there is the well-developed rail network of the ÖPNV traffic association providing direct connections and a high-degree of individual mobility.
Have a pleasant flight
In any direction, Koblenz is only a little more than an hour’s trip away from the major airports at Frankfurt and Cologne/Bonn. “Frankfurt fogged in?” – absolutely no problem, simply re-book your flight at Cologne or even Hahn Airport up in the Hunsrück. Following the development of the Frankfurt-Hahn facilities as the largest German regional airport, Koblenz has taken a larger step closer to its European neighbours. Hahn Hunsrück Airport serves as a major cargo hub and is increasingly becoming a major pivoting point for low-cost flights to major European commercial regions and tourist centres.
As a cargo shipping route using the Rhine and Moselle rivers, Koblenz harbour provides the most ideal conditions. Worldwide known corporations, such as Kimberly-Clark, Corus Aluminium Rolled Products, Stabilus Gas Springs and TRW Automotive can all be found settled in the industrial estate directly adjacent the Rhine harbour.
The excellently networked infrastructure of major waterways, railways and motorways, as well as the close proximity to airports, make Koblenz the best choice for global players to set up shop here.
