Leonberg

Leonberg is a town in the German federal state of Baden-Wuerttemberg about 10 miles to the west of Stuttgart, the state capital. Approximately 45,000 people live in Leonberg, making it the third biggest borough in the rural district ('Landkreis') of Böblingen (after Sindelfingen and Böblingen to the south).

Leonberg is most famous for its picturesque market square, the centuries old annual horse market, its past role as seat of one of Württemberg's first parliaments, and the Pomeranzen garden- Germany's only remaining terraced garden which dates back to the late renaissance.
