The Old Town of Reutlingen is full of buildings from the Middle Ages and home to the Spreuerhofstrasse, which at just 31-centimetres wide, is in the Guinness Book of Records as the smallest street in the world. A centre of the textile industry for hundreds of years, it keeps this tradition alive with local textile business still thriving; although the Weaving School, built in 1855, has since been turned into the acclaimed Reutlingen University of Applied Science. In 1989, its population exceeded 100,000 for the first time, and the town was officially declared a city; the youngest of the nine large cities within the region of Baden-Württemberg.

Location: It is known as the gateway to the Swabian Jura

Lying on the River Echaz and 35 kilometres south of Stuttgart, Reutlingen is at the heart of the Neckar-Alb region. It is just 130 kilometres east of the French border, and is easily accessible by air from Stuttgart Airport, and by road on the E41 and E52 European routes.

Business: Close to Stuttgart Trade Fair

The hotels in the city are all within easy travelling times of Stuttgart, and many business travellers enjoy the location when visiting the annual Trade Fair. For smaller conferences and meetings, many hotels offer facilities to cater for, such as boardrooms and halls available for use to their guests. Reutlingen has good communication routes with a regular bus service, and is only minutes away from the Autobahns if travelling by car.

Culture: A miraculous escape

The Church of Saint Nikolai, which was constructed in 1358, is one of the few buildings that escaped the terrible fire of 1726. With over 80% of the town in flames around it, the church remained almost untouched in the centre of the maelstrom. During the Second World War, the town constructed the wings for the V1 rockets, and was subjected to many Allied forces bombing raids. In 1945, the church was not so lucky as previously, and it was destroyed. It was rebuilt to the original specifications in 1949, and retains some parts of its original stonework.

Activities: Look to the stars and enjoy a night out

Reutlingen Observatory holds regular tours where you can witness the night sky as never before. Founded in 1956, it can offer short astronomy courses from beginners looking to recognise some of the constellations to professional astronomers wishing to brush up their skills. Of course, you could simply sit back in the comfortable seats of the Planetarium and watch the Universe as it comes to life around you.
