Full of Nature, Fun and Family Friendliness - The Westerwald

Working in the Westerwald


The location of our headquarters in Wallmenroth has the best of both worlds. It is a mixture of nature, industry and also a great place to live in. Thanks to attractive rent and affordable prices for ground, as well as non-existent anonymity, the dream of an idyllic life can be realized in Wallmenroth and the nearby Betzdorf. 




Three kilometers west of Betzdorf, located in the north of Rhineland-Palatinate and part of the administrative district Altenkirchen, the picturesque local community Wallmenroth connects the regions Westerwald and Siegerland. A well laid out road network offers quick connections to the Rhine-Main area and the Rhine-Ruhr area. 

The closest international airports are Köln-Bonn and Frankfurt am Main and they can be reached easily by car or train. The local public transport brings you around well and thanks to fairly quick and reasonably priced train connections, you can reach Aachen, Köln, Bonn, Siegen and Kreuztal without much trouble. 

Betzdorf is a strategically important railroad hub in the local public transport, which also shows by its connection to the county Hessen towards Limburg and Dillenburg and to the Westerwald towards Daaden. Alternatively, several bus lines leave from the town center and connect the neighboring towns and administrative districts.
