Sok jó ok arra, hogy Szász-Anhaltban éljen és dolgozzon
As a federal state located in the centre of Germany and Europe, Saxony-Anhalt is easily accessible for immigrants from all over Europe.
While the southern part belongs to the metropolitan region of Central Germany, the state borders the metropolitan regions of Hamburg and Berlin-Brandenburg to the north and east, and Hanover in Lower Saxony to the west. The geographical proximity to Poland and the Czech Republic is significant for internal EU migration.
This offers many mobile employees the opportunity to visit their families regularly with little travel effort.
Saxony-Anhalt is a modern business and science location. Twelve future-oriented locations spread across the state embody the dynamics of scientific and technological innovation with established structures.
In the heartland of the East German chemical industry, the logistics sector, the production industry in the fields of mechanical and plant engineering, food, agriculture, health and the creative industries offer good employment prospects for European immigrants. Attractive for many European workers is also the higher minimum wage and the stronger purchasing power compared to their Eastern European neighbours.
Likewise, European immigrants with, for example, a Master's or engineering degree are working in Saxony-Anhalt today because it is worthwhile for financial reasons and the general conditions for living are right.
Saxony-Anhalt is regarded by our European neighbours as a federal state with low housing and living costs and high quality standards. Rental prices are very similar to those in eastern Europe, in some cases even considerably cheaper. They are also significantly lower than in western Germany. In small towns and rural areas, buying a home is also cheaper than in Poland or Italy, for example. The general cost of living in Saxony-Anhalt is sometimes lower than in some European countries.
Not only in the pulsating larger cities of Saxony-Anhalt are there well-rehabilitated residential areas with an attractive living environment. In many places, excellently restored historic town centres, well-maintained green spaces and well-developed infrastructures contribute to both locals and immigrants feeling at home here.
The university cities of Magdeburg and Halle as well as other larger cities with their universities and research institutions, together with the companies, provide a lively working and living environment.
International students find compatriots also from the European Union, maintain exchange and contact with European communities and get to know other cultures. In particular, the educational and training conditions at the universities and vocational schools are considered attractive and exemplary by immigrants from the European Union, not least because of the favourable costs for training and studies.
Saxony-Anhalt has traditionally been committed to families and is considered family-friendly. For example, under the Child Promotion Act, all children in the state have a legal right to care and early childhood support in a kindergarten from birth. Social benefits such as
parental allowance and parental leave are also important contributions to a family-friendly climate. In addition, there is a wide range of kindergartens and after-school care places. Finding a place for one's own children here or at a school is less difficult than in some other countries with particularly dense conurbations. Many families who live and work here because of their distance from home and without
domestic support are thus offered the opportunity to reconcile work and family life in cities as well as in rural areas. Last but not least, the Saxony-Anhalt Family Pass offers regional leisure and cultural activities at reduced prices for the whole family.
The state's two largest cities – Magdeburg on the Elbe and Halle on the Saale – are not the only world-famous historical cultural sites with important sights. With its five UNESCO World Heritage Sites – the Bauhaus, the Dessau-Wörlitz Garden Kingdom, the Luther memorials in Eisleben and Wittenberg, the old town of Quedlinburg and Naumburg Cathedral – Saxony-Anhalt offers a unique density of cultural monuments.
In addition to the historic towns and cities and the "Romanesque Road" that connects them, distinctive landscapes such as the Altmark, Germany's northernmost wine-growing region, Saale-Unstrut, and the Harz Mountains, the highest mountain range in northern Germany and a national park, offer excellent places for excursions and experiences. Many towns and municipalities in Saxony-Anhalt invite you to relax in their green spaces and spacious parks, often with long cycle paths, and contribute to Saxony-Anhalt's proverbial relaxed attitude to life.
