Short Introduction to the Area of Study

Our campus in Nürtingen has been our everyday landscape the whole year. In this place we moved, studied, made friends and achieved the tasks from our master’s studies since we started our lifes in Germany.

The campus is located 2 km south from the city in an intersection of two secondary road that leads to the main entrance. Different kinds of land use industry, commerce, residential, agriculture and man-made nature meet in the area. The topography plays an important role as well, presenting a hilly and sloppy landform since the zone is in the beginning of the Swebian alps region. Forests are often found in the context giving the place a green view and places where people can have contact with a so called nature.

Besides the hills and forests the rest of the area has no important feature that can help to orientation or differentiation of this place is present.
