Stuttgart Information

Stuttgart is the sixth largest city in Germany and the capital city of the far southwestern state of Baden-Württemberg. The first thing many foreigners think of when they hear the word Stuttgart is the birthplace of the world famous luxury automobile the Porsche. This is true but many don’t realise Stuttgart is also the home of the other famous German car founded by Gottlieb Daimler being the Mercedes-Benz.

Of course a great attraction for any road enthusiast is to visit both the Mercedes-Benz and Porsche museums, however Stuttgart is more than just a car-manufacturing place. The city’s slogan “Stuttgart offers more” is the perfect way to sum up things as the city also offers everything from fantastic and vibrant modern shopping and nightlife to the heritage, history and architectural splendour of Schlossplatz (Castle Square) and Shillerplatz in the old city centre where you will find the very old and famous Stuttgart castle itself.

For the health and lifestyle lovers a day at the mineral baths in Stuttgart is just what the doctor ordered. The baths containing mineral water are not only health and fun but the best thing is that Stuttgart has three great ones to choose from.

To discover more nature the Wilhelma botanical gardens and zoo are not to be missed as they contain over 9,000 species of animal and fish and look like something out of the fairytale from Arabian Nights.

The cultured will no doubt enjoy a trip to Neues Schloss (New Palace) in Stuttgart as if you are looking for high-class events and concerts then this is the place to be.

Another great attraction not to miss is a delightful breathtaking river cruises on the River Neckar. The cruise will take you through some charming wine growing areas through the regions of Marbachon and Besigheim and the season starts after Easter and runs till mid October.

If you are lucky enough to visit the city around Christmas time then you can’t miss the Stuttgart Christmas Markets. These markets are the oldest and biggest in all Europe and are well worth planning your itinerary for.
