Our "Schwabenländle"

The "Schwabenländle", as it is affectionately known by its inhabitants, is home to many legends and stories. The Swabians are known for their thrift as well as their inventiveness. No wonder the family Pfauter decided to settle here after relocating from the East in 1950. The region is home to many world-famous companies and - with its vicinity to the state's capital Stuttgart - has also culturally a lot to offer. Welcome!
