Over 120 years ago, the first automobile world-wide was developed in Stuttgart. Ever since, our city has been a symbol for innovation and progress in mobility. Leading corporations of the automobile industry, most notably Daimler, Porsche and Bosch have their headquarters here. As the capital of the State of Baden-Württemberg, Stuttgart is not only an industrial city; it is also a cultural city that has made a name for itself through its renowned State Opera and ballet programs, and the exceptional art collections.
Stuttgart's main attractions are clearly the hilly landscape, the numerous vineyards that stretch all the way to the city center, the many parks that make Stuttgart one of the greenest cities in Germany and the mineral water fountains that characterize this region as having the largest source of mineral water in Western Europe.
