Seen & Entdecken

Have you ever thought about moving to the district of Düren? Well why not! We not only have plenty of space and fresh air but also affordable flats and good connections to the surrounding conurbations. 

What does it take to be happy? A place to feel good, lots of room for your own ideas, and enough variety to prevent boredom. All of that can be found in the Düren district. Whether town, city, countryside, culture or nature, with us you’ll get your money’s worth. And it’s certainly good value by the way, because living well is much cheaper here.

We are already 270,000 people. And we want to become even more. We’ve got space and building land for you, so grow with us! We extend a very warm welcome to you here.

If you love the Rhineland, then you’re in perfect hands with us in the Düren district. And what’s more, there’s quite a lot happening here at the moment. In a few years, the end of lignite mining will mark the start of filling the largest lake district in the region – with water sports facilities, lots of leisure activities and perhaps a place for your house on the lake. Of course it will take a generation before the large open cast pits are completely filled with water, But in the meantime, an attractive landscape will ensue. Pioneers will benefit, so it pays to be quick!

But even without the ‘Rhenish Lake District’, our 15 towns and municipalities are the ideal alternative to life in the urban centres. Situated in the centre between Aachen, Cologne, Bonn and Düsseldorf, you’ll find a quality of life in the wild and romantic northern Eifel and the vast Jülich Börde area that can’t be found in the big city.
