Reutlingen is a city in Baden-Württemberg.

It is an industrial city and is home to Robert Bosch GmbH's Automotive Electronics division as well as Reutlingen University (FH Reutlingen). The University is home to the highly-regarded European School of Business, as well as Production Management and International Business schools. This school was founded to support the textile industry that once thrived in Reutlingen (Hugo Boss's headquarters is located in neighboring Metzingen), but which has since been replaced by Bosch as the town's main source of industry.


Get in[edit]

Regular train and bus service to and from Tübingen and Stuttgart.

Alternatively you might be able to take a direct bus to many cities in southern Germany and Switzerland, operated by Omnibus Kocher [1].

Get around[edit]

Reutlingens public transport is part of the Naldo transport network [2]. They have an amazing variety of different tickets for group travel, etc. For a single traveller inside Reutlingen you would get a Einzelfahrschein (Single trip) or a Tageskarte (Day ticket) for one Zone (Wabe). The Einzelfahrschein is valid for 2 hours, the Tageskarte is valid for the rest of the day and costs twice as much as the Einzelfahrschein. The tickets can be bought when you get on the bus or occasionally at ticket machines at the bus stops. The tickets are also valid on the trains (if you have bought a ticket for enough zones) however you cannot buy them on the train, so make sure you have a valid ticket before you get on, otherwise you will be charged a 40€ fine.
