Tuttlingen is a large town in Baden-Württemberg in southern Germany.
Nearby airports include Stuttgart, Karlsruhe (Baden-Baden) and Friedrichshafen.
The town has a large train station with local services to neighbouring towns (and even a stop for the schools!) and fast ICE trains to other cities.
The town has an ample bus network leading out to the suburbs and to neighbouring towns but it is easier to walk or cycle as it is an easy town to get around in.
The beautiful River Danube flows through the town and there are several bridges to get across it.
The town has access to all the major mobile phone networks and public phones are easily spotted by their bright pink logo. Calling from Europe to Europe is becoming cheaper each year although it may be better to sort out something with your mobile provider before you go so you can get the best deal. As of summer 2009 Vodafone are getting rid of roaming charges, meaning it is the same price (or sometimes cheaper!) to call and text both home and abroad.
