Hospitality is a priority for us in Ostfildern. With the State Sports School in Ruit, the Garp Training Center, the Technical Academy of Esslingen (TAE) in Nellingen, and also the Training Center for the Printing and Media Industry in Kemnat, we have educational institutions in the city that bring tens of thousands of visitors to Ostfildern every year. The international fireworks festival "Flammende Sterne," held on the third weekend in August, draws about 50,000 visitors to the city every year. Consequently, the city offers offers a range of hotels and restaurants, covering every category and preference.
Living, working and enjoying leisure activities in beautiful surroundings; optimal transportation connections to the nearby city of Stuttgart, to the Autobahn, to the airport and to the Filder area trade show center - these are the advantages of this appealing place to live and work. The residents of Ostfildern and their guests enjoy the benefits of "the city in the country": urban infrastructure within a green landscape. Ostfildern's economic significance can be seen in particular in the areas of printing and publishing (MairDumont, Baedeker, Falk), and also in mechanical engineering and trade-show services.
