Stuttgart lies in a lush valley, nestling between vineyards and thick woodland on the River Neckar. With a population of about 600,000, the capital of Baden-Wuerttemberg is the urban center of south-west Germany.

The Stuttgart area has the reputation of being the 'cradle of the automobile', and visitors associate it primarily with technological innovation and thriving industry.

The academic tradition of the University of Stuttgart goes back to its probably most famous graduate student: Gottlieb Daimler, the inventor of the automobile. The University is one of the leading technical universities in Germany with highly ranked programs in civil, mechanical, industrial and electrical engineering. The University’s High Performance Computing Center Stuttgart supports researchers from Germany and Europe as well as industry with leading-edge supercomputing technology. In addition, the Fraunhofer Society, a German research organization for the advancement of applied research, and the Max Planck Society, active primarily in fundamental science, are located here.

However, the Stuttgart region is not only the home of large car companies and science and research organizations but has a wealth of historic buildings ranging from medieval castles and Baroque palaces to magnificent royal residences and picturesque ruins. There are no fewer than 19 mineral springs that spout some 22 million liters of crystalline mineral water daily. Since some are attributed with healing properties, there is a booming local spa industry. With its impressive car museums, exclusive art exhibitions, its fascinating history, famous architecture, and world-class ballet company, the Stuttgart region has cultural activities for everybody, whatever their tastes and interests.
