The tram connection guarantees an excellent transport link to Darmstadt. Darmstadt's main railway station and the Darmstadt motorway junction are just a few minutes from Griesheim.

Griesheim's Economic Development Agency is the first port of call for businesses in Griesheim, as well as for potential investors and interested parties. Here, you can find information quickly and easily about Griesheim as a place to live and work in the heart of the Rhine-Main region.
Our work is based on a comprehensive network of contacts with landowners, investors, banks and companies, and cooperation with and within many organisations at a local, regional and interregional level (partners from business and industry).
Economic development is not an end in itself, but rather an active part of the targeted and integrated development of the town of Griesheim. We work actively on location and support investors in setting up new companies, use existing networks, for example to find staff, and offer a consistent marketing concept for the business.
The staff at the Office for Economic Development, Property and Housing in Griesheim are available at all times for any questions and suggestions and to provide assistance in any way.
Short routes, getting you there quickly – that's what Griesheim stands for. The road network within the town is well-developed, accessible and easy to navigate. Modern local bypasses such as the South, North and West ring roads connect the industrial areas directly with Darmstadt and the A5 and A7 motorways – an ideal connection to the international road network. Frankfurt International Airport and Darmstadt’s main railway station are easy to reach. A new station for high-speed ICE trains between Darmstadt and Griesheim is in the planning stage.
In the four modern industrial areas - Flughafenstraße, Kirschberg, Rübgrund and Frankfurter Weg – fully developed plots are ready to be used at short notice. Non-bureaucratic and quick: small and mid-sized companies especially will find the best conditions here.
Griesheim's traditionally close relationship with nature and the environment, the geographical proximity to Darmstadt, a centre for science and education, the first-class employment structure and the infrastructural connections provide good arguments for many companies to settle in Griesheim.
