Pixell (Germany - Bonn)
Bonn, a city of 311.000 inhabitants in the west of Germany, is a highly dynamic, national as well as international competitive business location. Nearly 16.000 medium-sized enterprises shape the city’s economy. Today, Bonn is an important site for the United Nations. The organization contributes to the city’s internationality with its current 18 institutions.
Even nowadays there are many interesting places to discover in the former German capital. It was the Federal Republic of Germany’s seat of government for 50 years and its capital city for four decades. The former parliament and government district alongside the banks of the Rhine is regarded as a symbol for the first successful German democracy. Definitely worth a visit are Villa Hammerschmidt, the Federal President’s official residence, as well as Palais Schaumburg, the German Chancellor’s official residence in Bonn.
Art and culture characterize the city of Bonn. Not only diplomats, ambassadors and business travelers, but also plenty of tourists visit the sights of Beethoven’s city of birth. The historic city center has its own particular charm: the baroque buildings and narrow streets date back to the time of prince-electors. Furthermore, retail trade and gastronomic offering are both really lively and extensive.
In the immediate vicinity of Bonn there are fascinating excursion destinations such as Dragon’s Rock (Drachenfels) or the Seven Mountains (Siebengebirge). Both are easily accessible via public transportation.
pixell is centrally located in the midst of Bonn’s attractive south town. Together with Bonn’s western city, south city forms Germany’s biggest connected and preserved district from the Gründerzeit (Founder Epoch). The offices are located in a modern building with up to date facilities and an associated small park area. The connection to public transportation is excellent (650 m to Bonn’s central railway station, 30 km to Cologne, 25 km to Cologne Bonn Airport). Four floors accommodate the offices – a fact that does not prevent employees from cooking and eating together at lunchtime or meeting for a match of table football. By the way – the garden directly behind the office building is the perfect place for a barbecue party.
