Mulhouse, a town where the quality of life is very much appreciated.
The town constantly strives to improve the quality of every day life for its 112,002 inhabitants. With a wealth of cultural events, numerous sports facilities and a quality environment, Mulhouse has many sites for strolling around and relaxing.
A pioneering city at the time of the industrial revolution in France, Mulhouse has flourished thanks to the Textile, Chemical and Mechanical industry. From its past, Mulhouse has preserved an impressive heritage: the historic town that is shown off to advantage, impressive private mansions and the largest technical museum pole in Europe.
Thanks to its industrial traditions, Mulhouse has always adapted to its economic challenges. The pole of excellence for Information Technologies and Communication is located at the Technopole which benefits from all the latest leading-edge products. The automotive sector is also well represented with the PSA Peugeot Citroën production centre, not forgetting the industry's numerous subcontractors.
Mulhouse has direct links to the main European activity basins. It is strategically located along the Frankfurt-Milan axis (respectively 340 and 350 km away) and is located at an equal distance from Genes, Paris and Brussels, and is around 100 kms from Zurich and Strasbourg. With its privileged geographic location, on the border of three countries, Mulhouse has sound assets. The town is also 25 minutes from Basel (Switzerland) and 30 minutes from Freiburg (Germany).
A true testing ground where Europe succeeds with flying colours: Mulhouse shares a large international airport called EuroAirport with Basel and Freiburg. It is the only intercontinental hub in North East France. Mulhouse is also at the crossroads of the railway system that will, in the future, link up the European High Speed Trains: the Rhine-Rhone High Speed Train (TGV), the Rail 2000 between Italy (Milan) and Switzerland (Basel) and the German North South ICE.
