Weilimdorf (German pronunciation: [ˈvaɪlʔɪmdɔɐ̯f]) until 1955 known as "Weil im Dorf," is the north-western city district (Stadtbezirk) of the German city and capital of Baden-Württemberg, Stuttgart. Weilimdorf, covering an area of 12.6 square kilometres (4.9 sq mi) with a population of around 30,000, borders the Stadtbezirke of Zuffenhausen, Feuerbach, Stuttgart-West, and the towns of Gerlingen, Ditzingen, and Korntal-Münchingen in the Ludwigsburg district. Weilimdorf became part of Stuttgart in 1933 amidst the hardship of the economic instability of the 30s in Germany. The city district is made up by five Stadtteile: Bergheim, Giebel, Hausen, Weilimdorf-Nord and Wolfbusch and is home to an expanding commercial area.

Of this area, 29.4% of it is occupied by construction, another 12.3% is used by transportation, 3.9% is devoted to parks, forests stand on another 28.2%, and finally, agriculture occupies the final 28.7%.
