Baden-Wurttemberg is one of the strongest economic regions in Europe. Characterized by numerous medium-sized companies, a particularly large number of innovative people live here. Nowhere else in Europe are so many patents registered as with us.
Yes, it's true, we do a lot of work, but we lovingly call it "creating". So it's no wonder that very important inventions were made here that have made our lives worldwide.
Without Carl Benz, Gottlieb Daimler and Robert Bosch there would be no car today
Without Karl Freiherr Drais von Sauerborn we could not cycle
Without Albert Einstein, who was born in Swabia, we would probably have learned nothing about the theory of relativity.
Then there are a lot of things like the electric drill, plastic dowels, all-purpose glue, matches, chainsaw etc., etc., all invented in Baden-Wurttemberg.
And: If Carl Lämmle, who comes from Upper Swabia, hadn't founded the legendary Universal Studios, the dream factory Hollywood wouldn't exist today.
