Once famous for its salt and coal mining industries, Moers is now a vibrant and cosmopolitan city, interlaced with walking and cycling trails and many street cafés, restaurants and bars, particularly in the Altmarkt area. The city motto of “opposites attract” is emphasized in the old town, with its many winding alleys and quaint shops contrasting with its modern shopping center. The fourteenth century Lauersfoot Castle, complete with moat, has many ancient trees and landscaped gardens to enjoy. And Moers castle, in the city center, is also a popular tourist attraction. Moers holds several annual and biannual festivals and events, including the famous Jazz Festival, which attracts thousands into the city every year.

Moving to Moers

Expatriates flying into Dusseldorf International Airport can easily get a train to Moers. The Cologne-Bonn airport is an alternative arrival option, again with train transport into Moers. The city is well served, with autobahn connections to all parts of Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium. Any expatriate moving to Moers will also be glad to hear that public transport in Moers is excellent, with buses running to all parts of the city, as well as to neighboring Duisburg. Nevertheless, relocating to a new country is often stressful, with new customs and language difficulties to negotiate. Contacting other expats who have themselves undergone a move to Germany or Moers itself can often resolve specific problems you may encounter. The InterNations trusted community of expatriates offers members the opportunity to make contact and meet, where possible, with others of a similar professional standing and background, so you can enjoy the company of like-minded individuals. For more general information, the InterNations’ Expat Magazine is a fountain of knowledge for expats, with many useful articles on a wide range of topics.

Working in Moers

Having shed its former coal-mining and salt-mining past, when Moers was a part of the heavy industries of the Ruhr region, the city now concentrates on construction, materials production and light machinery. There is a large paper-making industry, with textiles and food products also featuring in the Moers economy. The ability to speak fluent German is a necessity in Moers, especially if you are actively looking for work in the region and haven’t been sent there on an expat assignment by your current employer. Meeting with fellow expatriates working in Moers is a good way of making new friends in the city, and members of the InterNations expat community in Moers and beyond can organize visits to the city's festivals, or dining together in one of the many restaurants in Moers. For the more energetic expats living in Moers, the hiking and cycling trails in the region offer day trips through the beautiful countryside of the Rhine valley.

    On InterNations I did not only meet interesting people but I also found a flat near Bochum and settled in quickly. A great platform.
