Welcome offers for new residents!

New residents get a New Resident’s Voucher Book and a special introductory offer on the CIK-club New Resident’s Card!

Every year, more than 50,000 people decide to make the Karlsruhe TechnologyRegion their new home. To make our new residents feel even more welcome, the Regio Service Südwest gives every newcomer to the region lots of great welcome offers.

All new residents are given the New Resident’s Voucher Book (Neubürger-Scheckheft) as a special welcome gift when they register at the Einwohnermeldeamt (residents’ registration office). The more than 50,000 Regional New Resident’s Voucher Books given out across the region are provided by Regio-Service Südwest, partner and service provider to the Karlsruher Verkehrsverbund public transport network (KVV). Thanks to this partnership, in the regional version of the Voucher Book you’ll find a free KVV weekly season ticket to make it easier for you to explore the area and find out what it has to offer completely stress-free for a whole week.

You’ll also find lots of attractive discount offers for services, restaurants, cultural and leisure facilities across the region to give you a taste of the exciting diversity that abounds in our region. The handy-sized square welcome gift contains vouchers for a wide range of experiences and activities in the region, ranging from a day ticket to the Baden State Museum and a surprise pack from the Die Neue Welle radio station to free bowling. So there’s something for everyone.


But that’s not all: Regio Service Südwest has yet another attractive offer for new residents!

With the exclusive CIK-club Neubürgerkarte (New Resident’s Card) you can get special offers and discounts of up to 50% on goods and services from more than 850 businesses, shops, restaurants, cultural and leisure facilities. You can also use it to enjoy more than 100 local events completely free or at discounted rates.

But discounts and prize draws aren’t the only things that make this little card so special. Regio Service Südwest has come up with an innovative feature that makes it even more unique: it’s a great way to get to know lots of lovely new people fast! Because this card is part of the CIK-club, the biggest community for new working residents in Region Südwest, with more than 24,000 members. As a New Resident’s Card holder you will enjoy even more friendly service and lots of discounts.
