See and do
Stuttgart happens irrespective of the time of day and its nightclub scene is among the best in Europe. Finding a bite to eat is easy no matter the hour and Doner Kebabs sold by Turkish expats make a satisfying ‘nightcap’. Oktoberfest celebrations happen throughout Germany towards the end of summer, as does Stuttgart’s Volkfest.
The Mercedes Benz museum is built around a working Merc plant and you will love visiting the birthplace of one of Germany’s most recognised exports. The Carl Zeiss Planetarium treats guests to a wide range of shows and you’ll walk away with a greater understanding of the universe.
The best views of the city can be enjoyed from the Fernsehturm Stuttgart Television Tower, plus there’s a restaurant at the top. The television tower was the first of its kind in the world, and has been replicated in many other cities throughout the world.
Relax in the lush surrounds of Das Grune U – a series of gardens that form a U shape around the centre of the city. The circuit is one of the best ways to explore the city on foot as it passes a number of Stuttgart’s museums as well as the zoo. The total length of the ‘U’, can be traversed in around 2 hours and the route passes many lively beer gardens and restaurants along the way.
Stuttgart boasts a fully integrated public transport network so a single ticket can be used on both buses and trams alike. Stuttgart has both a U Bahn and a S Bahn. The S Bahn is the fastest way to reach the suburbs of the city. Stuttgart’s official transport website has an English version and boasts comprehensive information on routes and cards available.
