Stuttgart Region

Stuttgart Region (Baden-Württemberg, Germany) consists of the city of Stuttgart and the surrounding counties of Ludwigsburg, Esslingen, Böblingen, Waiblingen and Göppingen (each 10 - 20 km from Stuttgart city center). About 2.7 million inhabitants live in that area (3,700 km²). In fact, with 708 people per square kilometre, the Stuttgart Region is one of the most densely populated areas in Germany. Stuttgart Region is governed by an directly elected parliament.

Situated at the heart of Baden-Württemberg and Europe, the Stuttgart Region is the hub of economic, scientific, and political life in Southwest Germany. The area currently has Germany's highest density of scientific, academic and research organisations, and tops the national league for patent applications. The Gross Domestic Product for Stuttgart Region was recorded at 31,590 per capita in 1999. The unemployment rate is only 4.8 per cent. Stuttgart Region is one of Europe's most important and most successful economic centres. This is due not only to the influence of leading international companies, such as DaimlerChrysler, Porsche, Robert Bosch, Celesio, Hewlett-Packard and IBM (all of whom have their world or German headquarters here), but also to the influence of world-renowned medium-sized enterprises such as Behr, Dürr, Kärcher, Märklin, Stihl and Trumpf. In total, approximately 150,000 companies are located in the Stuttgart Region.
