The municipality of Teningen has about 11,500 inhabitants and is situated in the south-western part of Baden-Wurttemberg. Administratively Teningen belongs to the county of Emmendingen. The surface of Teningen has 4,027 ha and reaches from the foothills of the Black Forest to the Kaiserstuhl. Teningen is approximately about 16 kilometres in the north of Freiburg and one of the most important industrial municipalities of the county. Therefore, in the regional plan of Teningen the municipality is listed as industrial and commercial site. In total there are about 1,000 commercial and trading companies as well as workshops having approximately 4,500 employees contributing to social security. The traffic connection is very good since Teningen has an own junction to the highway A 5 from Karlsruhe to Basel. Furthermore, Teningen is on the railway from Francfort to Basel. A part of about 36 percent of the district is forested. The nice situation between the Black Forest and the Kaiserstuhl, the many possibilities for excursions, the short distance to Freiburg, the excellent infrastructure as well as the traffic connection give answers to the question why Teningen is very popular as residence.
