General Information about Baden-Württemberg

The state "Baden-Württemberg" has one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country, and is a leader in exports and research and development.  It is home to some of the world's top producers of all kinds of industrial products, most notably automobiles, electrical equipment, chemicals, textiles and biotechnology. In addition to large international firms like Daimler, Porsche, and Bosch, most of the state’s companies are Mittelstand firms – that is, small- to medium-size businesses – producing highly innovative, world-leading niche products.

The state also prides itself on its culture and hospitality, as home to over 25% of the Michelin star-rated restaurants and hotels in Germany. Tübingen and Heidelberg still thrive today with two of the oldest universities in the country, and the Stuttgart Ballet and State Opera are among the best German-language theatres in the world. 

Scenically attractive areas in Baden-Württemberg include the Black Forest with ancient Freiburg and Baden-Baden’s warm springs, the Swabian Alb hills in the east, the valleys of the Rhine, Danube and Neckar rivers, and Lake Constance (Bodensee) in the south. The Alps, also within easy reach, are always worth a trip, whether in summer or winter. Finally, wonderful wine and food throughout the region draw millions of visitors every year.
