Nidwalden is centrally located and benefits from direct access to the A2 motorway, the all-important European arterial link connecting Hamburg with Palermo. Zurich and its international airport are under one hour away, as are the cities of Basel and Berne. 

Innovators feel at home in Nidwalden. Progress and commercial prosperity are the order of the day. Having reduced its tax levy on licensing revenues - unique in Switzerland - Nidwalden is now considered a benchmark research location.

Moreover Nidwalden's affinity for aviation is legendary: The world-renowned Pilatus aircraft company has been based here for over 75 years. The company is now building the Super Versatile Jet PC-24, the only aircraft combining the versatility of a turboprop with the cabin size of a medium-light jet, and the performance of a light jet.

Nidwalden Business Development acts as a one stop service organisation for all matters of business and economic development; it also acts as the business network coordinator.
