Stuttgart Region

The Stuttgart Region is the geographic, economic and political core region of the federal state of Baden-Württemberg.

The Stuttgart Region is renowned for its strong economy, as the cradle of the automobile, the home of countless global players and innovative medium-sized enterprises in the automotive and engineering sectors. But it's worth taking a closer look at the full range of assets that the Stuttgart Region has to offer: along the R. Neckar, which flows through the region for 90 kilometres, centres of industry alternate with delightful countryside. Woodland, meadows and vineyards are characteristic of the Stuttgart Region, despite the fact that it's one of the most densely populated areas in Germany.

There are 179 towns and municipalities in the Stuttgart Region under the local government of the five administrative districts of Böblingen, Esslingen, Ludwigsburg, Göppingen and Rems-Murr, in addition to the state capital of Stuttgart.
