The Hesse town of Offenbach lies at the heart of the Rhine-Main region, close to the metropolis of Frankfurt. The town is partially renowned as the centre for the German weather service and as the home of the German leather museum. Thoughtfully placed parks and green spaces thread through the town. Further space for relaxation, sports and leisure activities is afforded by the Taunus low mountain range and the Odenwald forest, which are quickly accessible.
The centre of the “weather town” boasts a modern pedestrian zone with specialist retailers, street cafes and department stores. An architectural attraction is the Isenburger castle, which was constructed in the Renaissance style and which today belongs in part to the campus of the renowned university of art and design. The art school has a decisive influence over the cultural scene in Offenbach and lends the town a dynamic and creative flair. The location with its favourable transport links at the heart of the economic region of Rhine-Mainz and the multifaceted cultural and educational facilities on offer make Offenbach a diverse, central and comfortable place to live.
