Baden-Württemberg

The state of Baden-Württemberg lies in southwest Germany and borders on Bavaria, Hesse and Rhineland-Palatinate. The Rhine forms its western boundary with neighbouring France. Its southern boundaries with Austria and Switzerland run through Lake Constance. With an area of 35 751 km² and a population of 10.7 million inhabitants, Baden-Württemberg is the third-largest federal state, both in terms of size and of population.

Baden-Württemberg is fortunate in having a wide diversity of unspoilt nature. Large, contiguous wooded regions such as the Black Forest, the Swabian Alb and the Odenwald are typical of the landscape. Around 40 per cent of Baden-Württemberg's total area are covered in woodland.

Baden-Württemberg may be poor in mineral deposits, but it is rich in people who are bursting with ideas, ingenuity and a penchant for hard work. The creativity and inventive energy, knowledge and skill, paired with the active involvement in business, science, education, art, culture and society of the people who live here, have made the southwest of Germany one of the most successful regions not only in Europe, but worldwide.

In comparison with the other federal states, Baden-Württemberg leads the field in many areas. Baden-Württemberg is one of Europe's foremost technology regions, with a strong export trade, an exemplary density of research institutions and a high proportion of the population employed in high-tech and sunrise industries. However, it also has countless small and medium-sized enterprises that are world market leaders. Baden-Württemberg is an innovative state, characterised by future-oriented sectors and undiminished inventive genius.

The quality of living in Baden-Württemberg is exceptionally high. It's a wonderful place to live in all sorts of ways. Typical of the state are its wide variety of scenery with plenty of unspoilt nature, outstanding environmental standards and a lively international art and culture scene.
