Kirchheim is a town in Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany, in the district of Esslingen. It is located on the small river Lauter, a tributary of the Neckar. It is situated near the Teck castle, approximately 25 kilometers southeast of Stuttgart. In 2005, the population of the city was 39,923 and an area of 40.47 square kilometers. The three launch pads are arranged in the form of an equilateral triangle, whose sides point toward the east and the south. The distance between the launchpads is approximately 50 meters.
The Natter launch pads at Kirchheim might be the only remnants of these rocket launch pads still on publicly accessible terrain. The former test site for the Natter in Baden-Wuerttemberg on the Heuberg near Stetten am kalten Markt is in an active military area, and therefore not accessible to tourists.

A city known for its historic myths and traditions, scenic beauty, cooperative people and luxurious hotels and cottages, Kirchheim is one of the favorite holiday destinations for most of the vacation lovers.
