Location and accessibility
Located southeast of Laichingen (11,000 inhabitants, secondary center) and only a few minutes drive from the motorway A8 Stuttgart-Ulm, the industrial and business park called Laichinger Alb features a total area of 533,400 sqm. This attractive location situated between the two Southern German major cities Stuttgart and Ulm provides excellent access to the German motorway network and to all major transportation routes. The Stuttgart Airport and the new trade fair center of Stuttgart as well as the container terminal in Ulm/Dornstadt are within a short distance. The groundbreaking ceremony in May 2017 marked the start of the construction work for the strategic project of the railway station Merklingen – Schwäbische Alb. This important connection to both the regional and the interregional rail traffic will significantly upgrade the entire Swabian Alb region. Soon, the Laichinger Alb will benefit from excellent connections to the metropolitan centers of Stuttgart and Ulm. Travelling time of 11 minutes to Ulm Central Station, 20 minutes to Stuttgart airport and of about 30 minutes to Stuttgart Central Station will particularly strengthen the competitiveness of our region.
