Part of the cSUR-UT Series: Library for Sustainable Urban Regeneration book series (LSUR, volume 7)


The Stuttgart region is placed in the heart of Baden-Württemberg, one of the 16 states of the Federal Republic of Germany. It comprises the city of Stuttgart, the state capital, and five counties (kreise)—Ludwigsburg, Esslingen, Göppingen, Rems-Murr and Böblingen- and covers 3,654 square kilometers. It is home to about 2.7 million people who live in a total of 179 municipalities; some of them are big towns, others small rural villages. With more than 700 inhabitants/square kilometer it is one of the most densely populated urban regions in Germany. Over 20 million people live within a 200-kilometer radius of Stuttgart.
