Gütersloh - Business location with a feel-good factor


Gütersloh – urban living in a rural neighborhood. The resident global enterprises Bertelsmann and Miele ensure that the name of the modern city in the country is known as a business location all around the world.

Yet Gütersloh has so much more to offer: The city's historic city center around the Church of the Apostles is one of the most beautiful in Westphalia. From here, the town once known as Heidedorf developed into a city characterized by its sense of enterprise and is currently home nearly 100,000 residents.
