Bocholt - industrial and shopping town in the green Münsterland region

Located between the Ruhr area and the Dutch economic centres of Arnhem and Enschede, Bocholt is the largest city in the Borken district with over 71,000 inhabitants and the economic and cultural centre of the region. The city combines its location in the Lower Rhine lowlands with its cultural and historical affiliation to the Münsterland region.

This special solitary location has turned it into a retail centre with a catchment area of almost 475,000 inhabitants and a centrality index of almost 100, while it also benefits as an important logistics location from its proximity to the Netherlands and the universal ports of Antwerp, Rotterdam and Amsterdam.

There are impressive shopping streets around the historic town hall, with two modern inner-city shopping centres that combine metropolitan flair with a cosy, stylish shopping experience in the city centre, which is characterised by high-quality retailers.

Bocholt is also the economic metropolis of the region with international corporate divisions and innovative medium-sized, often owner-managed companies. Future-oriented infrastructure and forward-looking business parks are just as much a sign of this as the technology and innovation centre with a connection to the Westphalian University of Applied Sciences on site and the largest developed industrial park in North Rhine-Westphalia with 300 hectares.

You can find numerous companies from Bocholt in the WFG company database for the Borken district and get an overview of the region's industry structure.

Examples of the city's educational landscape include the Faculty of Business and Information Technology, the Mechatronics Institute and the Bachelor's degree programme in Bionics at the Westphalian University of Applied Sciences in Bocholt.

Bocholt can be the future, is the city of future makers!
