Barnim Bus GmbH

Operator of Germany’s Oldest Operational Trolleybus System

Eberswalde, located in the federal state of Brandenburg, is situated approx. 50 kilometres North-East of the German capital of Berlin. The county town of Barnim, counting 40.000 inhabitants, is surrounded by widespread forest areas and has borne the name “forest town” since 19th century.

The town has developed its linear structure along the Finow Canal in the past and therefore has no typical city centre. The advantageous location close to the Finow Canal also fostered the economic development in the city and local area. At present Eberswalde is characterized by the food industry, waggon construction, engine building, metal working, electrical engineering as well as wood processing.

Many tourists also enjoy the beautiful landscape around Eberswalde in summer and visit popular attractions like the lift lock in Niederfinow, Lake Werbellin or the monastery in Chorin.
