The motor city of Stuttgart is not only a city with some of the highest life quality indicators of Germany, but also the seat of the Kämmerer Group. The capital of Germany's federal state of Baden-Württemberg, with around 600,000 inhabitants, is the largest city of this state, called affectionately “Stuagad“ by the locals, and “Stuggi“ by youths.
The cityscape of the capital of Swabia is defined by numerous hills, offering many lookout points, from the beer gardens of which one can enjoy wonderful views of the metropolis. Thanks to its location in a basin, and thanks to the surrounding forests, the city is mostly protected from foul weather and natural disasters. People say that it is always calm in Stuagad when the whole world goes under. From the economic point of view, Stuttgart is a very attractive business location, providing much employment not only thanks to the automotive industry and its suppliers, powering the industry to expand. Stuttgart values art and culture highly.
