A Warm Welcome to Aalen

Aalen is a city of 67,000 inhabitants at the foot of the Schwabian Mountains. Rather small regarding its size, but big in its impact on the German economy. This southern region has a lot of “Hidden Champions”, small and medium sized companies which are world market leaders in their specific industry niche and which represent the high quality of “made in Germany” around the world like Carl Zeiss AG, Voith GmbH, Hartmann AG or Bosch Automotive Steering GmbH.

The Ostalb region offers you a picturesque landscape where you can explore the Roman UNESCO World heritage site „Limes“ or find out more about the life of the Celts, Romans and Staufers. If you want to explore Germany a bit more, within a short ride by train you can visit the surrounding cities:
1h > Stuttgart
1h > Ulm
1,5h > Nuremberg
2h > Munich

Or just enjoy the local bars and restaurants!
