The region of Tuttlingen - the Weltzentrum der Medizintechnik

"River kilometer 2747" means that you would still have 2747 kilometers to go if you rowed from Tuttlingen on the Danube towards the Black Sea. However, it is worth staying in Tuttlingen and discovering this great city.

Because in addition to the strong economy, the city on the Danube has much more to offer for family, leisure, education, culture or vacation travelers. The Danube flows through the middle of the city of Tuttlingen. The spacious park there invites you to take a walk on the promenade after work or at the weekend. In the beautifully designed city center you will find modern shops from all industries and a varied gastronomy as well as plenty of cafés and even an Irish pub and a well-attended beach bar.

You drink mineral water. Or you can bathe in it - for example in Tuttlingen TuWass . The quality of the water from the Tuttlingen thermal spring is so high that it meets the strict requirements for mineral water. But you can also simply swim your laps in it and do something for your health in this way.

Those who like to take a look back in time will get their money's worth on a visit to the Honberg, where the Honberg Festival also takes place in summer. For music lovers there is also the Southside Festival in Neuhausen ob Eck, where internationally successful artists, popular German acts and a large number of newcomers appear every year.

In Tuttlingen you will not only find your workplace, excellent kindergartens, schools, universities and cultural institutions right on your doorstep but also the peace, the private oasis in the garden and nature and you will enjoy the lively, urban environment with modern shops, regional as well as international cuisine, pubs and cafés. Those who live in Tuttlingen benefit from the regional manageability as well as from the offers of a dynamic center - from childcare to senior networks.

Two of the most outstanding buildings in recent years have also shaped the city's cultural life: the City of Tuttlingen's gallery as a place of contemporary art and the town hall as a regionally important stage for concerts, opera, theater and literature. Since culture and festivals are best enjoyed outdoors in summer, there are numerous festivals and festivals: the Juggler Festival and the Run & Fun sport event in the heart of the city. Summer in the park on the edge of the Danube. The Honberg summer against the backdrop of the medieval castle ruins. And the Southside Festival in neighboring Neuhausen - incidentally one of the largest festivals in Germany.

Most of our guests enjoy their vacation in a healthy and environmentally friendly way: Because as a stop on the Danube cycle path, Tuttlingen receives thousands of cycle tourists every year who cycle through Tuttlingen down the Danube. For the people of Tuttlingen this means: You have one of the most beautiful long-distance hiking trails in Europe right on your doorstep. And not only that: One of the most romantic passages in the Danube Valley begins right behind the city limits, where the jagged cliffs are reflected in the deep blue of the river. And anyone who has seen all of this can reach two of Germany's most popular holiday landscapes within an hour - because Lake Constance and the Black Forest are just as close as the border with Switzerland or France.
