Our Regensburg: a modern city with a long history and a warm heart. The earliest documented settlement here goes back to 179 AD. Today, the old town is one of the best preserved in Germany and brimming with southern European flair.
Currently the city is home to 150,000 residents and 26,000 students. As a location for high-tech companies, Regensburg has successfully bridged the gap between the traditional and modern ways of life. Nuremberg and Munich are just a short hop away and the green lung of Bavaria - the Bavarian Forest - is right on the doorstep. Quality of life, what more could you want!?

You can probably imagine that a global company such as OSRAM Opto Semiconductors feels very much at home in Regensburg. However, this is not just due to the city's good looks. Outstanding infrastructure and access to a highly qualified workforce account for the rest.
Today, OSRAM Opto Semiconductors is one of the world's largest manufacturers of opto-electronic semiconductors for the lighting, sensor and visualisation sectors. Our success story really started in 1970. From this moment on, our innovations made a decisive contribution to the development of LED technology. Further milestones included the launch of SMT packages in 1990, the first blue LED in 1994 and the first thin-film LED chip in 2001. In 2003, the company achieved yet another milestone: in Regensburg production started at the world's most advanced opto chip factory.
