About us

On 1.1.2000 Town development union Ulm/Neu-Ulm was created as a cross-border business development facility. With the establishment of the Town development union both towns wanted to overcome the negative competition of the past, to strengthen their competitiveness, to come together to use existing space development potential and thus to secure and create jobs and contribute towards the strengthening of the regional consciousness. 

The core tasks of the Town development union are, for example, property mediation and assignment, location development and business development from a single source, offering support in the relocation or shared care of existing stock and the common location marketing. 

The Town development union is a public sector unon in accordance with Bavarian law with its headquarters in Neu-Ulm. The essential characteristic is the business tax equalisation between the two towns. The financing is carried out by means of contribution.

Chair and union assembly


Gunter Czisch, the Lord Mayor of Ulm and Katrin Albsteiger, the Lord Mayor of Neu-Ulm alternate yearly with regard to the holding of the chair of the union. The colleague of the neighbouring town acts as representative. In 2022, Lord Mayor Katrin Albsteiger holds the chair.
