An important industrial city that has evolved into a centre of excellence for the arts and culture, whilst retaining a vision of forward thinking science and technology development. As you enter the city by car, you will pass signs that say 'Schweinfurt - Industry and Art', for many years it was known as the home of the ball bearing, but gradually it has been redesigning itself into a city for everyone to live in and enjoy, which the sign reflects. With parks and river front walks, residents and visitors can now enjoy the peace and tranquillity within the middle of the city. The proximity to the Main River is also a draw for water sports enthusiasts.

Location: Landlocked but surrounded by water

The rivers and lakes of the area give this landlocked Bavarian city the feel of a resort by the sea at times. As for connections to the rest of Germany, there are no worries in that respect. Found just off the A70 and with rail and bus links to Frankfurt and its international airport, the town may feel remote, but it is far from it.

Business: A fast growing, hi-tech city

Originally known for its heavy industry and machine parts construction, which still continue, Schweinfurt is developing a technology centre that is expanding rapidly. The third richest city in Germany, it is ranked as one of the cities for businesses to invest in, partly due to the amount of development opportunities produced.

Culture: An international city spreading art to all

The world-renowned modern art Museum Georg Schäfer is found in the middle of the city, which along with the many smaller art galleries and public artworks on the streets and in the parks is making Schweinfurt a magnet for artists and art lovers. A walk through the streets brings your attention to the wonderful architecture of the 16th and 17th Century buildings that stand side by side with more modern structures.

Activities: Wildlife Park or Wellness Center…you decide

Just north of the city, in a delightful forest setting, is the Elk Wildpark. With over 500 animals in a natural surrounding habitat, it is a great day out for the family. In the centre of town is a recently built Mega-Pool complex to offer a swimming experience unlike any other. It is open all year round and allows you to swim in and outdoors in its heated water trail, or just be content with swimming lengths in the large main pool area. As in most complexes of this type, you also have the option for saunas, massages, and tanning beds to give you that spa experience.
