On living in Stuttgart


Stuttgart is the capital of the Bundesland of Baden-Württemberg in Germany. With a population of approximately 591,000 in the immediate city and more than 3.5 million people in the metropolitan area, Stuttgart is the 6th largest city in Germany.

Stuttgart is known as a centre of mechanical and automobile engineering with the headquarters of the world famous Bosch, Mercedes and Porsche within its metropolitan area. That said, it does not resemble most other industry hubs, as it is a rather sparse city spread over many hills and valleys, with forests, parks and even vineyards within the city.

Stuttgart consists of 23 districts (Stadtbezirke), which are further divided into no less than 152 localities (Stadtteile). The five inner districts are quite obviously named Mitte, Nord, Ost, Süd and West ("centre", "North", "East", "South" and "West", respectively). The outer districts are mostly former towns with their own names - of note are Zuffenhausen (Porsche headquarters and museum) and Bad Canstatt (headquarters of Daimler-Benz and Mercedes-Welt, as well as sports arenas sponsored by both Porsche and Mercedes).
