What will I discover here?
Waiblingen calls itself 'a young city in ancient walls'. It is known for being the location of the Stihl company, which funds a number of public projects, putting the city on the map for culture lovers and businesspeople alike. The town's historic fortified ramparts encompass buzzing nightlife as well as history, and are themselves surrounded by the stunning natural landscape of the Remstales flood plain. Efficient transport infrastructure means business delegates to the city's conferences and events can move freely among the business hubs in the region and internationally, via the nearby airport. Waiblingen's infrastructure is also the reason for the numerous logistics companies located here.
