Federal and country roads run through the Altmark and the completion of the A14 motorway is rapidly approaching
Motorway and broadband expansion for an attractive infrastructure
The town of Stendal stands out in the Altmark as an important traffic junction: railway junction, own airfield and the Elbe as a waterway very close by. The entire Altmark region’s economy will experience another upturn with the expansion of the motorway and the broadband network.
The Altmark is centrally and conveniently located within Germany and Europe: right between the major cities of Berlin, Hamburg, Hanover, Wolfsburg and Magdeburg, the Leipzig-Halle region is not far away either. The Hanseatic city of Stendal in the Altmark region is particularly well located: with an ICE train connection, it is one of the most important rail transport hubs in Northern Germany and the Stendal/Borstel commercial airfield is available for business flights.
The Altmark can be easily reached by water via the Elbe’s inland port in Tangermünde and the river port at the Altmark industrial and commercial park in Arneburg. Very soon the A14 motorway will lead through the Altmark region, making the region even more interesting as a business location. The broadband expansion is also running full speed ahead to ensure good and fast Internet connections in the last small villages in the Altmark’s rural area. In addition, the expansion of broadband also enables many sole traders and self-employed people to work here regardless of their location.
More information about the broadband expansion is available from Zweckverband Breitband Altmark.
