With nearly 12,000 inhabitants, Laichingen is the largest town in the surrounding area and, together with Blaubeuren, fulfils the function of a regional centre. The WBL location is especially attractive for young families. Laichingen offers every type of school. With elementary and secondary schools with a vocational secondary school, secondary and advanced secondary school, special school and branches of the Ehingen commercial school and vocational school – there is something for everyone. In addition, building land in the countryside is still relatively cheap.

Everything is within easy reach, but never boring:
There are many attractive sights in Laichingen and the surrounding area, and the town is often alive with hustle and bustle. A variety of markets are held every year at Easter, Pentecost, St. Andrew’s Day, during the town fair and, of course, before Christmas, and these attract thousands of visitors.
