Baden-Württemberg is characterized by strong communities – municipalities, cities and counties – with a mostly decentralized economic structure, a high cultural heritage and places steeped in history.

Results of this structure are high quality of life and economic power. In this context, it is important to strengthen municipal structures, including urban-rural relations.

This diversity of the state is reflected in the logo of the European Office of Baden-Württemberg’s municipalities.
