As the third largest district in the département of the Upper Rhine in population terms (with 20,305 inhabitants),
Saint-Louis is situated in the heart of a busy economic area in the French part of the Basel conurbation.
The town chiefly owes its success to its outstanding geographical location, at a natural crossroads between three countries: Switzerland, Germany and France.
A resolutely trinational success story
In the heart of the Trinational Eurodistrict Basel (TEB), the town of Saint-Louis works closely with the 62 members and German, Swiss and French local authorities to ensure the harmonious development of a conurbation totalling no fewer than 750,000 inhabitants from three countries.
Saint-Louis boasts 40 industries, 152 companies producing craftsman-made products, 198 service providers and 228 retail businesses. It is also a scientific centre with the Franco-German Research Institute (ISL), HOLO 3 (a laboratory carrying out research into holographic applications) and Piezotech (piezoelectric shock sensors and films).
