In 1988, Reutlingen became a city of over 100,000 inhabitants and is still growing. It is now the ninth largest city in Baden-Württemberg, and is well-known as a prosperous and attractive place to live, study and work. Modern architecture, the public library and museums, busy shopping districts and arcades, the weekly market, cafés, restaurants to suit all tastes, and bistros are just a few of the places where you can relax and meet people.

Independent excursions are at your own cost – there are none included in the program. However, the relative proximity of Reutlingen to European cultural and fashion centers (Paris, Dusseldorf, Vienna, Rome, London) can encourage students to take excursions to these cities as well. These would be independent excursions, but intra-European train and plane fares are quite reasonable.
