The town offers more than just a fine blend of medieval timbered buildings and modern urban architecture; there are lively shopping facilities, quiet romantic spots, cultural diversity and a wide range of leisure facilities, all providing for a very high quality of life. The proximity of the ancient university town of Tübingen and the Baden-Württemberg capital city of Stuttgart also contribute to Reutlingen’s attractiveness as a place to study. The Black Forest and the Lake of Constance are also within easy travelling distance.
