It is home to many major scientific and technical organisations, including EUMETSAT, European Space Agency Operations Centre (ESOC), T-Mobile, Merck amongst other. This development has led to Darmstadt being dubbed the ‘Wissenschaftstadt’, or ‘City of Science’, and makes it an economically prosperous and internationally diverse city.

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.
