The Lake Constance region, with its international outlook, ideal mix of businesses, great working environment and high living standards, is one of Europe’s up-and-coming areas.
At the centre lies the town of Constance, an important commercial hub with a high concentration of expertise, growth areas and relevant networks. As the largest town on Lake Constance, it has evolved into a centre of innovation in IT, communication technologies and B2B and B2C services.
Thanks to its proximity to Liechtenstein, Austria and Switzerland, Constance has become a hub for cross-border cooperation, to the benefit of the local retail, tourism and leisure industries. There are great opportunities for growth here.
