Why is Monheim am Rhein the right location for you as an investor? Because we understand your concerns. Because we have the courage to break new ground. And because we tackle things and are open to innovation. That's why Monheim am Rhein offers more than just one plus point. There are lots of plus points that makeMonheim am Rhein equally attractive for business and families.
When we say we are “business-friendly”, one of the things we are referring to is our innovative tax policy. In 2018, the local trade tax rate – which had already been favorable for years – was reduced by a further 10 points to the current 250 points, the lowest rate in all of North Rhine-Westphalia. For us, this is a further step towards making the vibrant business location of Monheim am Rhein even more attractive.
Monheim am Rhein has excellent transport links thanks to the nearby airports of Düsseldorf and Cologne/Bonn, the A3, A59 and A542 motorways as well as the local public transport network. But the town’s digital connections are also good – thanks to a future-proof, area-wide fiber optic network that ensure extremely high-performance internet connections up to the Gbit/s range.
This means short processing times instead of long official channels. For example, we issue a building permit within five weeks. But, for us, being service oriented also means giving all-round support – from the initial contact to when the new location opens its doors and, of course, beyond.
The town of Monheim am Rhein offers companies many opportunities for development: at present, there are still almost 40,000 square meters of commercial building landavailable for purchase. A further 70,000 square meters will be created in the coming years. Our location also scores highly thanks to its diverse range of existing properties.
A dynamic business location with a highly qualified workforce: companies appreciate not only the innovative tax policy of the town but also, and above all, the highly qualified employees available there. And there are plenty of them in the catchment area between Cologne and Düsseldorf.
Monheim am Rhein has been debt-free since 2013 and is generating high surpluses thanks to the enormous growth in tax revenues. The freedom of action gained this way enables the City to invest, for example, in attractive, cityscape-defining construction projects and in the wide range of services offered to promote the welfare of children and young people.
Our idyllic town is situated on the Rhine, surrounded by large forest areas and wide open spaces. It’s an excellent location for living and relaxing in the countryside. And if you want to get a taste of the big city, then the pulsating city centers of Düsseldorf and Cologne are just a stone's throw away.
Local politicians and the City Administration have made Monheim am Rhein one of the most child-friendly and family-friendly cities in Germany. This undoubtedly includes the free day care centers and all-day schools and the award-winning prevention chain "Mo.Ki – Monheim for Children" with its comprehensive support programs for children and young people.
The town offers many advantages that make life here so worth living: an idyllic location, a quaint old town, a multitude of cultural and leisure activities, the joie de vivre of the Rhineland and many festivities. But people also quickly appreciate amenities such as free Wi-Fi spots and parking spaces in town.
Monheim am Rhein will continue to expand its position as an attractive place do business and live in. This is ensured by the good financial situation that the City enjoys, its future-oriented strategies and its willingness to continue to go down unconventional paths.
