The location of the old town center of Nürtingen on the spur of a hill overlooking the Neckar Valley, with a far-reaching view over the surrounding countryside and a dominant position over the Neckar crossing, indicates that the original site was of strategic importance. The Celts and Romans left their mark on this city on the Neckar, as did famous writers and artists. The views of the town and its surrounding scenery are defined by the Neckar, the natural orchards of the foothills of the Swabian Alb, and the impressive Alb escarpment. The delightful countryside around Nürtingen can be explored at a leisurely pace via countless hiking and cycle trails and the Neckar Valley cycle route.
In addition, Nürtingen is located right in the heart of a region with one of the strongest economies in Europe. The state capital of Stuttgart and the towns of Tübingen, Reutlingen, and Göppingen are only a few minutes journey away by car or train. A direct link to the A8 Karlsruhe-Stuttgart-Munich motorway, the proximity to Stuttgart International Airport and the New Trade Fair Centre make Nürtingen an attractive destination for day tourists and businessmen
