Portrait of Jena

The “small city” of Jena, where nothing is more than a stone’s throw away, is synonymous with a mix of long-standing tradition and a clear forward-looking attitude: Culture and high-tech, internationality, vibrancy as well as leisure and recreation come together to offer the ideal location for diverse interests and lifestyles to connect. No two lives are the same, and Jena is a great place to find common ground.

Jena is young: There are over 23,000 students at Friedrich Schiller University and Ernst Abbe University of Applied Sciences who play a major role in setting the tone for life in the city, which totals around 109,000 inhabitants. It should therefore come as little surprize that half of Jena's residents are under forty and that the city very much lives in rhythm with the University's semesters.

Jena is flourishing: Whether international groups, SMEs or start-ups, high-tech companies, small trade businesses or IT service providers - Jena boasts a healthy economic structure with an emphasis on knowledge-intensive products and services. Highly qualified personnel are always in demand in Jena.

Jena is growing: In contrast to the overriding demographic trend, Jena's population is constantly on the rise, not least as the city offers young families with children a high quality of life. Both universities, numerous members of the dynamic business scene as well as the public services have made it their stated intention to be as family-friendly as possible and work together to achieve this goal within the "Jenaer Bündnis für Familie" ("Jena alliance for families").

Everything within touching distance: From the campus to the gym, from the shops to the concert venue, from the library to leafy walking paths - Jena is a city of short distances. It's rare for anything here to be more than ten minutes away on foot or by bike. Distances are also short in a different sense thanks to the effective networking of science and business, culture (creators) and administrative bodies.
