Geislingen is a town in the Zollernalbkreis district, in Baden-Württemberg, Germany. It is situated 4 km northwest of Balingen. Current population is at around 6,000 people. Geislingen consists of three smaller towns, Geislingen (pop. 4,500), Erlaheim (pop. 500) and Binsdorf (pop. 1,000), all of them growing by about 1% per year. While the area has been constantly settled since the stone age, the first written documentation of Binsdorf dates back to the year 834, Geislingen proper gets a first mention in 1188. The local economy mixes agriculture with services and small-scale industry. Most of Geislingen today has a residential character with many citizens working in the highly industrial areas south of Stuttgart or in nearby Balingen.
