Europe's gateway with an excellent transport infrastructure
NRW stands for mobility in all dimensions. This is ensured by six airports offering a total of almost 450 direct international flights to the cities of the world. NRW has the densest rail network in Germany with about 6,000 kilometers of tracks. More than 2,200 kilometers of freeways and 17,600 kilometers of federal and provincial roads ensure that almost all of the state's locations have optimal links to the European interstate road network. The state also has a lot to offer on the water: Around 720 kilometers of waterways with 120 ports, including the world's largest inland port in Duisburg with almost 110 million tonnes of freight handled annually. In almost no other region of Europe will companies find better conditions for transport and logistics.
