Stuttgart is the capital of Baden-Württemberg and the largest city. It lies in the Neckar valley, in a fertile valley called the Stuttgarter Kessel[5] or the Stuttgart Cauldron. It is an hour away from the Swabian Jura (the Black Forest) and the Swabian Jura. Stuttgart is home to 635,911 people [6], making it Germany's sixth-largest city. The city's administrative area is home to 2.8 million people [3] and its metropolitan area has 5.3 million. This makes it Germany's fourth-largest metropolitan area. Both the metropolitan area and city are consistently ranked among Europe's top 20 metropolitan areas in terms of GDP. Mercer placed Stuttgart 21st in its 2015 list for cities with the highest quality of life.[a] 2thinknow, an innovation agency, ranked Stuttgart 24th globally in its Innovation Cities Index 2015.[b] The Globalization and World Cities Research Network ranked Stuttgart as a Beta-status international city in their 2020 survey. [10] Stuttgart hosted the official tournaments for the FIFA World Cups in 1974 and 2006.

Stuttgart is unusual in the scheme of German cities.[11] It is spread across a variety of hills (some of them covered in vineyards),[12] valleys (especially around the Neckar river and the Stuttgart basin) and parks. The city is known as the "cradle of the automobile".[13][14] As such, it is home to famous automobile museums like the Mercedes-Benz Museum and Porsche Museum, as well as numerous auto-enthusiast magazines, which contributes to Stuttgart's status as Germany's "Autohauptstadt" ("car capital city").[15][16][17] The city's tourism slogan is "Stuttgart offers more".[18] Under current plans to improve transport links to the international infrastructure (as part of the Stuttgart 21 project), Stuttgart unveiled a new city logo and slogan in March 2008, describing itself as "Das neue Herz Europas" ("The new Heart of Europe").[19] For business, it describes itself as "Where business meets the future". In July 2010, the city unveiled a new logo, designed to entice more business people to stay in the city and enjoy breaks in the area.[20]
