A lively little city
Reutlingen lies at the heart of one of the most beautiful regions in the Swabian Alb mountains. Apparent opposites form its unique character: Medieval half-timbered Romanticism stands alongside modern architecture, bustling shopping streets lead to cosy alleyways - and almost as quickly, you can access the 707 metre tall Achalm which offers stunning views over the city and the Swabian Alb mountains. Reutlingen is as metropolitan as it is homely. It is both a modern business hub and a holiday destination in harmony with nature. Located within the biosphere area, visitors to Reutlingen can enjoy a unique natural and cultural landscape just a stone's throw away. The former imperial city’s impressive attractions include the striking Tübinger Tor, the Marienkirche church cultural landmark and the narrowest street in the world as listed in the Guinness Book of World Records since 2006.
