Welcome to Baden-Württemberg
This attractive state in the southwest of Germany attracts highly skilled people and companies from a broad range of disciplines and regions and demonstrates its integrative strength. This is particularly important for companies that depend on well-trained staff, an excellent infrastructure and cooperative economic development opportunities. There is a great deal happening here, giving cause for the editors to publish a fully updated and supplemented new edition of the Investment Guide of Baden-Württemberg.
The Investment Guide shows a broad, but at the same time concentrated, profile of a state that has distinguished itself in a great many fields with its outstanding performance and well-targeted economic development and is also a very attractive place to live. A compass for all business travellers in Baden-Württemberg.
Come and visit us. We look forward to seeing you!
