The favourable location and diverse industry culture are the best prerequisites for ALTEN and its customers to drive development and innovation
Living & working
Theory and practice are very close in the science district of Ulm, Wissenschaftsstadt. All major engineering companies, including the ALTEN GmbH/ALTEN SW GmbH office, are located in the Science Park in close proximity to the college and university. Our approximately 50 employees research and develop the technologies of tomorrow there.
Although the location is just outside of Ulm, there are a number of nearby options for spontaneous shopping during your lunch break. The nearest supermarkets can be reached by car within five minutes.
The connection to the public transport system is very good. It’s a five-minute walk from the office to the Lise-Meitner-Strasse stop. Bus lines 5 and 15 stop there. In addition, tram line 2 ends at Science Park II directly opposite the office.
The B10 federal road takes you to the A8 motorway in the direction of Stuttgart or Augsburg in less than ten minutes. There are plenty of parking spaces around the building.
