Where we work
Frankfurt and Eschborn
Deutsche Börse Group has three office buildings in the Frankfurt area: in the city of Eschborn, located just outside Frankfurt’s city limits, in “Industriehof” in the Hausen district of Frankfurt and at Börsenplatz in Frankfurt’s city centre. The headquarters of Deutsche Börse Group are located in Eschborn, accommodating the majority of employees. The vaults and data centre are based in Hausen with a staff of approximately 80, and about ten employees work at Börsenplatz.
The city of Frankfurt
Given its convenient location almost in the centre of Germany, Frankfurt/Main has enjoyed nationwide importance for centuries. Where once the Franconians created a ford over the river Main, important trading paths have crossed here ever since and contributed to the steady increase in the economic strength of the city, situated in the south of the German federal state of Hesse. The role played by bridges in the past has since been taken over by the runways of the central Rhine-Main airport – with more than 50 million passengers per year it is the second largest in Europe – and by the eight lanes of the adjacent autobahn junction. The Frankfurt Trade Fair is also operates globally; incidentally, it is the oldest in the world. During the book fair, music fair or automotive show: the city on the Main attracts up to 2.7 million trade fair visitors in peak years.
Today, almost 300 banks, around half of which are foreign and including Deutsche Bundesbank, and since 1998 the European Central Bank (ECB) control the flow of money from here. With 600,000 jobs, Frankfurt has almost as many employees as residents (670,000).
International and multilingual dimensions are part of daily life. After all, one in three Frankfurt inhabitants does not originate from Germany. Deutsche Börse Group works globally but the majority of its employees live where they work: in greater Frankfurt/Main.
