Welcome to the homepage of Marbach am Neckar, Schiller's birthplace.


I would like to invite you to take a virtual tour of our town. In addition to lots of information on a wide range of topics related to culture, tourism and business, the tour will provide you with an extensive service offering that you can use simply from the comfort of your own home any time you wish.


With just a few mouse-clicks, you can have easy and convenient access to all types of information on Marbach, Schiller’s birthplace. Our beautiful Old Town with the houses where Friedrich Schiller and Tobias Mayer where born, the literary institutions that have acquired international fame, such as the Schiller National Museum, the Literaturmuseum der Moderne (Museum of Modern Literature) or the Deutsche Literaturarchiv (German Literature Archive), and the historical cultural jewel that is the Alexanderkirche are unmistakeable trademarks of the former high court town of Marbach.
In its convenient location close to local and national routes and linked to Stuttgart by a fast suburban rail connection, Marbach offers its inhabitants a full range of schools as well as an excellently organized and extensive network of childcare facilities.
More and more firms are becoming aware of these benefits. Our new industrial estate at the former EVS power station (which now belongs to EnBW) provides the best possible location with an excellent transport infrastructure (by road, rail and on the river Neckar).


Regardless of your special areas of interest, during your visit to Marbach am Neckar you will meet people everywhere who do voluntary work in many different areas, thus making a central contribution to an active community. The Stadtinfoladen, which is organized by the public and is the first point of contact for many inhabitants and tourists, is just one obvious example of this enthusiasm for voluntary work. I am particularly committed to an effective and trusting relationship between the general public and the staff at the town council. Please do not hesitate to contact us directly with new ideas and suggestions. Get in touch with us – we will always be happy to listen.


I would like to thank you for your interest in Marbach am Neckar, Schiller’s birthplace, and look forward to your next internet visit. Of course you can get to know our lovely town much better if you visit in person, and I heartily invite you to do just that.
