Where is Nordhausen?

Never heard of Nordhausen? Or maybe you have only heard of the "Real Nordhäuser"?

Nordhausen is also a university city, located in the north of Thuringia on the border to Saxony-Anhalt and Lower Saxony. The city is therefore relatively central in the middle of Germany.

Founded in April 972, Nordhausen has 46,000 inhabitants nowadays, which makes it the largest city of northern Thuringia. It is surrounded by the mountain rages Harz, Kyffhäuser and Hainleite, and the cultural landscape Eichsfeld. In April 1945 more than 70% of the city was destroyed by an allied attack during the second world war. 8,800 people lost their lives.

With the traditional industries of spirits manufacturing and tobacco processing, Nordhausen became an important economic region for many years. However the introduction of market economy caused a profound restructuring of the industries. Nowadays Nordhausen’s industry is still characterized by a large spirits manufacturer, but also by medium-sized craft businesses and service companies.

With the establishment of the University of Applied Sciences in 1997 smaller engineering and development companies followed.
