APL: Employ­er in Three Regions

Land­au in the Pala­ti­na­te, Wolfs­burg and Bietig­heim-Bissin­gen were very conscious­ly chosen as loca­ti­ons for APL. All three cities offer clear advan­ta­ges for both employees and customers.
Market Place in the Heart of Landau
Viney­ards of the Palatinate
As the metro­po­lis of Southern Pala­ti­na­te with appro­xi­m­ate­ly 45,000 inha­bi­tants, Land­au is a lively univer­si­ty town with many young peop­le. The Pala­ti­na­te peop­le are very socia­ble and Land­au is known for great events like the Land­au Summer or various wine festi­vals. The town also has a lot to offer in other respects: the impres­si­ve art nouveau festi­val hall with nume­rous events, a town cent­re that invi­tes you to stroll around and, of cour­se, surroun­dings that are charac­te­ri­sed by natu­re and viney­ards. Land­au and its eight districts are loca­ted in one of the largest wine-growing areas in Germa­ny, main­ly due to the mild climate.

Land­au is ideal as a place to live for young fami­lies becau­se of its rural idyll, count­less leisu­re faci­li­ties – such as the zoo, swim­ming pools and local recrea­ti­on areas – and a wide range of schools and dayca­re centres.

The Rhine-Neckar regi­on and the Karls­ru­he metro­po­li­tan area can be reached quick­ly, which is also a great advan­ta­ge for APL customers.

Wolfs­burg city­scape domi­na­ted by the “Auto­stadt”
Only a few koilo­me­ters away: Braun­schweig with its famous „Löwen“
Wolfs­burg has about 125,000 inha­bi­tants and is very central­ly loca­ted between Hano­ver and Berlin. The modern city offers a wide range of cultu­ral and leisu­re acti­vi­ties. Whether congress park, muni­ci­pal theat­re, Aller­see lake, bathing area or ice skating stadi­um: resi­dents of all ages find varie­ty here. You can go shop­ping with the whole fami­ly at the City Gallery and outlet cent­re, and marvel at scien­ti­fic expe­ri­ments in the “phæno” science centre.

For many peop­le, Wolfs­burg is inse­pa­ra­b­ly linked to the auto­mo­ti­ve indus­try. The city is very produc­ti­ve and the densi­ty of engi­neers is extre­me­ly high. Not only does Wolfs­burg have the highest gross dome­stic product per inha­bi­tant, it also has the highest number of employees working in future-orien­ted industries.

The city is ideal­ly posi­tio­ned in terms of trans­port tech­no­lo­gy – due to a dense network of roads and motor­ways, rail trans­port and Germany’s longest arti­fi­ci­al waterway.

Histo­ri­cal side of Bietigheim-Bissingen
Natu­re of Bietigheim
Bietig­heim-Bissin­gen is loca­ted near Ludwigs­burg, Stutt­gart and Heil­bronn and is surroun­ded by rolling hills, forests and viney­ards. The town itself is just as impres­si­ve as its surroun­dings. The city cent­re has grown histo­ri­cal­ly and is predo­mi­nant­ly medieval. The town hall (built in 1507), the Latin school and the Horn­mold­haus town muse­um are defi­ni­te­ly worth mentio­ning. The latter is one of the most important Renais­sance buil­dings in the whole of southern Germa­ny. It’s also compri­sed of the three buil­dings that give the town cent­re its unmist­aka­ble appearance. But there is much more to see and admi­re — for exam­p­le the New Palace, the walk-in city wall, the Japa­ne­se garden and the many sculp­tures by important sculptors.

But Bietig­heim-Bissin­gen offers its 43,000 inha­bi­tants not only a lot of histo­ry and cultu­re. It also boasts nume­rous restau­rants, cafés and wine taverns. The town is the ideal place to live for fami­lies, as there are plenty of shop­ping and sports faci­li­ties, seve­ral kinder­gar­tens and schools for all ages.

As a well-known indus­tri­al loca­ti­on in the midd­le Neckar regi­on, Bietig­heim-Bissin­gen has enorm­ous resi­den­ti­al and leisu­re value.
