Welcome to our homepage
Erkelenz is a town with many different sides... whether it be its history, culture, societies, sport or kindergarten. Read through our different pages and get to know Erkelenz as a lively and vivacious town.
We are a proud, open-minded town in the heart of Europe and the Three-Country area but also open to the world: in addition to official town twinning, our schools and societies maintain many different international contacts and friendships.
Over 46,000 people live here in Erkelenz and this number is ever-growing. The influx of new families moving here is shown by the incredible demand for housing plots. As a result, we are investing in our town: kindergartens, sports complexes, multi-use complexes, the fire brigade, to name a few. We see it as our duty to invest this money, in order to secure our future and this is thanks to our solid budgetary policy, which enables us to do so. Erkelenz is a town that has a lot to offer everyone.
We are always there for you: the first point of call is the citizen’s registration office but the other departments will also be more than happy to help you professionally.
All our services and the corresponding contact person in the town-hall can be found in the Online Citizens Portal.
If you have any requests, suggestions or criticism then you can speak to me personally. All you need to do is call my secretary and make an appointment. (0049 2431/85-215). I will take the time for you.
With the kindest regards from our town-hall,
