The districts of Dithmarschen and Steinburg are situated between Hamburg and Scandinavia, and are sandwiched between the North Sea and the Elbe River. Our diverse region is characterised by fascinating contrasts. We are part of the metropolitan area of Hamburg with the largest industrial park in Schleswig-Holstein, while the UNESCO World Heritage Site the Wadden Sea is one of the prominent tourist destinations in Germany.
Alongside the mudflats and the economy, you can find research and knowledge-based facilities as well as a region with tremendous recreational value.
Small and medium-sized companies feel just as much at home here as internationally active enterprises do.
