Baden-Württemberg (-deˈbaːdən ˈvʏɐ̯təmˌbɛɐ̯k) is one of the 16 states of Germany. Baden-Württemberg is in the southwestern part of the country to the east of the Upper Rhine, and is the third largest in both area and population of Germany's sixteen states, with an area of 35742 km2 (13800.1 sqmi) and 10.7 million inhabitants. The state capital is Stuttgart.

The sobriquet Ländle (dialect form for "small land") is sometimes used as a synonym for the Swabian part of Baden-Württemberg.
