Living & working
With 100 employees, Cologne is one of our medium-sized locations. The office is located in a commercial area in the district Chorweiler, where there are also several meal options for your lunch break.
The recreational area, Fühlinger See, which includes seven connected lakes and a regatta course, is just a ten-minute walk away. It is the ideal place for swimming, diving, fishing, windsurfing, canoeing, and rowing. The lakeside road is often used for inline skating.
The bus line 121 stop is located immediately in front of the office building. Its main route includes the S-Bahn train station Cologne Chorweiler. From there the S11 and S6 go to the main train station.
By car you can reach the main motorways A1 and B9/Neusser Landstrasse within a few minutes. There is free parking for applicants on site.
Interesting facts & free time
Cologne is known for its cathedral, the Rhine, and the carnival. Germany’s largest carnival procession takes place here every year. But Cologne not only has music, dance and fun to offer in the urban jungle, but also provides numerous green areas and parks for recreation and closeness to nature.
Not only commuters benefit from the short distance to the Ruhr area and the Benelux countries, the economy and trade do as well. Cologne plays a central role for the German economy as a centre for the media, automotive, mechanical engineering, chemical and insurance sectors.
