Besides being a wonderful place to live, the Filder area offers attractive surroundings for business meetings and events -- only a short ride from the hectic bustle of the state capital, Stuttgart (via public transportation: light-rail lines U7 and U8). The autobahn A8 (between Karlsruhe and Munich), the Stuttgart Airport and the Messe Stuttgart trade show center are also nearby. Besides the Municipal Building (the "Stadthaus" in Scharnhauser Park), several other municipal meeting halls and conference rooms in various hotels offer space for events of any type.
