Stuttgart as a Place to Study, Work and Live
The state capital Stuttgart with a population of almost 600,000 has a lot to offer. It is the economic center of South West Germany and known worldwide for its automotive expertise. It is a city famous for engineering, architecture, and culture, surrounded by vineyards. Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach developed the first petrol motor in their garden shed in 1882, thereby founding the city’s automotive industry. Porsche followed later as a sports car manufacturer as well as numerous suppliers such as Bosch and Mahle.
The Stuttgart Region is one of the leading economic areas of the world. It is home to a large number of global brands like IBM and Hewlett-Packard housing here their European Headquarters, as well as several thousand highly innovative small and middle-sized companies.
Worth visiting are the many varied museums, a dynamic theater landscape, the Opera House, palaces, parks, the town’s woodlands and the Wilhelma zoological-botanical garden.
