Stuttgart is an attractive and leading economic location
Approximately 2.7 million people live and work in the Stuttgart region, which is Germany's largest exporting metropolis and the No. 1 high tech region in Europe. The capital city of the state of Baden-Württemberg is not only geographically the central region of the state.
