what we do Tasks and projects

Verband Region Rhein-Neckar is responsible for cross-border regional planning in the Metropolitan Region Rhine-Neckar. It draws up consistent, coordinated plans for the region, develops them and works to turn them into reality.

Regional planning secures the attractiveness of the Rhine-Neckar region as a business location and the prosperity of its people over the long term. Planning decisions must therefore always take into account natural conditions and population trends as well as economic, infrastructural, social and cultural concerns and needs.

In addition to its planning duties, Verband Region Rhein-Neckar is responsible for tasks in regional development: European cooperation, the transition to sustainable energy sources, area management, spatial monitoring, shaping demographic change, tourism and internal marketing, economic development and nature parks as well as conferences, trade fairs, cultural and sporting events.

Verband Region Rhein-Neckar is also responsible for regional coordination in traffic planning, traffic management and energy supply.
