Living & working
Rüsselsheim is a medium-sized ALTEN location with around 150 employees. You can reach the heart of Rüsselsheim within ten minutes on foot and choose from a variety of options for your lunch break. The office building itself also has a canteen and an Indian restaurant.
The connection to public transport is very good since the train station is directly opposite from the office building. All train, tram and bus lines go through there.
The A3 motorway towards Cologne or Würzburg and the A60 motorway towards Bingen are only a few kilometres away. The Frankfurter Kreuz (A3 and A5) is less than 20 kilometres away, which corresponds to a travel time of around 15 minutes. You can park your car either directly on site in a pay parking garage or ten minutes away on foot in free car parks.
The mid-size city is particularly attractive due to its optimal location in the middle of four major cities. It is less than 30 kilometres from Frankfurt, Darmstadt, Mainz, and Wiesbaden. Rüsselsheim is very attractive as a place of residence for commuters due to the short distances and its population increases steadily.
Interesting facts & free time
The 65,000-inhabitant city is mainly known for the car manufacturer Opel. In the 19th century, the Opel factory initially manufactured sewing machines, later bicycles, and finally cars. Today, logistics, aviation, digital economy, and life sciences are among the most important industries. The future technologies for Industry 4.0 and smart cities are also very important.
Well-preserved witnesses of Rüsselsheim’s rich history are the medieval fortress and a castle ruin in the Verna Park. The Hessian highlands Taunus and Odenwald, as well as the Bergstrasse, and Rheingau offer high recreational value in the Rhine-Main region. The Main flows directly past Rüsselsheim and finally into the Rhine at Mainz.
