At the heart of Europe

Geographically, the Stuttgart region is an equal distance from Paris, Vienna and Milan. Board a plane and within two hours you can be in Barcelona, Budapest, Copenhagen, London or Rome.
Thanks to its favourable position at the heart of Western Europe, and an excellent transport infrastructure, Stuttgart is a key industrial hub.
The federal motorways A 8 and A 81 intersect here and the region also boasts an extensive network of 3,500 kilometres of federal, state and district highways. The Karlsruhe–Mannheim–Stuttgart–Ulm rail link puts the state capital on the main European East-West Bratislava–Paris line.
At regional level, the suburban rail network covers 348 kilometres, supported by a bus line network which covers around 10,000 km. Around ten million passengers are handled annually at Stuttgart Airport, which offers direct flights to 110 international destinations, served by 60 airlines.
Stuttgart port is an optimum link between the North and Baltic Seas and also to the Black Sea.
