Located in the region of Hessen in West-Central Germany, Darmstadt is a city of approximately 140,000 inhabitants. It is home to many major scientific and technical organisations, including EUMETSAT, European Space Agency Operations Centre (ESOC), T-Mobile, Merck, and more. Their development has led to Darmstadt being dubbed the ‘Wissenschaftstadt’, or ‘City of Science’, and makes it an economically prosperous and internationally diverse city.
As a result of its close proximity to Frankfurt, a major European transport hub, Darmstadt is easily accessible by air, rail and road. It is a 20 minute drive from Frankfurt International Airport, and its main railway station has links to major cities both within Germany and in neighbouring countries.
