The Rhein-Main region is a collection of over 460 communities with a population of 5.5 million spread over three states. These communities each have their own identity, cultural heritage and intact neighborhoods, which taken together makes the region diverse and vibrant.
The Rhein-Main region is international and open-minded but also remains deeply rooted in its heritage and history. Frankfurt is an urban metropolis but just one hour away lies untouched wilderness in the Odenwald. The cities of the Rhein-Main region - from Limburg to Darmstadt, Aschaffenburg to Mainz - are each unique in their cultural offerings, schools and universities, sports, shopping and architecture. The Rhein-Main region encompasses portions of the three states of Hessen, Rheinland-Palatinate and Bavaria, but taken together the region offers a good balance of work and leisure, making it simply a nice place to live.
Nestled between the major cities are hundreds of municipalities, each of which is extremely proud of its local history and intact neighborhoods. Over the centuries, what has emerged is not a homogenous sprawl of bedroom communities, but rather a colorful mosaic that gives the region its vibrancy.
Following is a list of various areas of interest to live, throughout the Rhine-Main Region.
