Centrally located in Europe
Its central European location is one of the main factors that make Karlsruhe TechnologyRegion so competitive. The region boasts outstanding connections to the rest of the world and lies situated on the continent's most important north-south corridor for the transportation of goods.
Meanwhile, the harbors in the region and their container terminals along the Rhine represent some of the largest inland ports in Germany. Connections to major ICE and TGV rail lines are also an important part of the Karlsruhe TechnologyRegion's solid infrastructure. Several times each day, high-speed TGV trains take passengers all the way to Paris (via Strasbourg) in just two and a half hours. Karlsruhe/Baden-Baden Airport and a well-developed network of regional public transport are just a few more advantages the Karlsruhe TechnologyRegion offers. From Karlsruhe's main train station, for example, it only takes an hour on an ICE train to reach Frankfurt Airport – the region's main gateway to the rest of the world.
