Stuttgart

Stuttgart

Stuttgart is located in southern Germany and despite being the sixth largest city in the country, extends a warm friendly welcome to its visitors, something not usually associated with larger cities. Car enthusiasts will be in their element in Stuttgart, and trips to the Mercedes Benz and Porsche museums are a must! For the more cultured, head for the Kunstmuseum, which is the glass-walled Art Museum, or the Staatsgalerie, the impressive State Gallery, which includes works by Picasso and many other popular 20th century artists. Food here is a traditional affair, with popular dishes such as knuckle of pork, duck and ox all being accompanied by the ever-present 'Kohl und Knödeln' (cabbage and dumplings). Of course, this has to be washed down with a large beer - this is Germany after all! So why not fly with Austrian Airlines to Stuttgart and sample this unassuming city first hand?

SHOPPING in Stuttgart

Shopping in Stuttgart
Weltenbürger

If you get a new outfit in the Weltenbürger (citizen of the world), you might as well just have come back from looting flea markets in New York. The shop is dedicated to American fashion, however, that of yesterday, or more precisely from the time between 1950 and 1990. Are you looking for Alice-Cooper shirts, like Boho dresses and Members Only jackets? How lucky you are: The shop's owner, Bryan Sanderson, has collected all of that for you. Be inspired by what you see: Bryan calls his concept fashion laboratory and asks his customers to experiment with the clothes. Boys' and girls' corners? Forget it. You will see whether or not it fits, says the vintage expert. The owner is a world's citizen himself, and his temporary shop might disappear as fast as it has sprung up. Tip: Great finds are always welcome. If you have got any chic retro clothes yourself you can swap or sell them here.

Blood sisters

The blood sisters have long been a star at the fashion heavens that no one wants to miss! And where did this never-ending family story begin? 2001, in a little shack near the Stuttgart train station. The founders of the label, Christina Haneberg and Karin Ziegler, have long passed this stage: As early as 2003 they won the first award for best fashion designer newcomers. Blood sisters attract attention, after all. Their collections are popular all over Europe, but since you happen to be at the point of origin you should absolutely visit the main shop in Stuttgart, the L'aufbrezelsteg. Take at least one piece of this unconventional, authentic, amazing, unique, exciting and passionate fashion home with you.

Sichtbar

Sichtbar (visible) helps you to keep everything in perspective and look great at the same time: In the purist and stylishly designed shop you only find selected pieces, and many of the glasses have come in directly from one or the other trendy fashion week. Sichtbar not only promises the latest trends but also keeps its promise. The labels are national and international - a good mix. They include: Dsquared, Oliver Goldsmith, IC!Berlin, Mykita, Marni, Oliver Peoples, Paul Frank, REIZ, Robert La Roche, Tom Ford. And if you have perfect eyesight, don't be sad - there's a huge selection of sunglasses, too.   You won't just find the perfect advice when it comes to style, the optician's team, too, is extremely capable and has an individual solution for every desire. Custom-made designs are part of the standard programme. Tip: For the lovely little ones you can get the wonderfully colourful glasses by Bbig.

STAY in Stuttgart

Stay in Stuttgart
Zum Hexenhäusle

You don't care about a central location? Then the Hexenhäusle (witch house) is a charming and authentic alternative to the hotels in the city centre. It's hardly possible to get a cheaper place - which is why you can take the liberty to hire one or the other taxi. The rooms are bright, decorated in a sunny yellow and spotlessly clean. The hotel was last renovated in 2007, and since then everything has been shining in a warm glow.   There are sinks in the rooms, yet no showers - those are on the floors for common use. If you want to save even more, you can bring your own towels and bed linen, otherwise you have to rent them. And if you don't feel like making your way into the city centre at night, you can settle down in the hostel garden or play table football with the other guests. Doubles start at 16 euros a night per person, and for longer-term residents (one month stay) there is a special tariff of 11 euros per person.

Arcotel Camino

Once people splashed in the water where now there is an extravagant hotel. The building of the former bathhouse complex is listed, and so the façade continues to look like the original from 1890: It was renovated with a great sense of style, combining old with new elements.   The highlights of this elegant house are the crystal chandeliers in the lobby and the classy, modern bathrooms. The industrial designer Harald Schreiber is responsible for this perfect blend between the chic and functional.   The heart of the house is the restaurant Weissenhof, and the soul the bar Scala. The Weissenhof offers a creative combination of Austrian and Swabian cuisine that is of the highest standards, and in the Scala you can kiss every day goodnight - which is why it's popular not only with hotel guests but also other visitors. Doubles start at 80 euros a night.

Graf Zeppelin

The Steigenberger Hotels are primarily known for their luxurious atmosphere and full service. The almost 200 rooms of the hotel are elegant and innovative, deliberately decorated more like private than guest rooms. Despite the hotel size one feels at home, and the anonymity can have a certain charm, too. The standard room is not smaller than 25m². When it comes to the categories Superior, Deluxe and Executive, the feel-good rooms grow to 58m²...Welcome to the Superior suite! If you've seen enough of that, just hurry up to the 5th floor, where you can wind down and chill out: The Shiseido SPA has been established according to ZEN philosophy and is a boon and blessing for body and soul.    In the gourmet restaurant Olivo the up-scale theme continues on. This time it's not your tired limbs but your taste buds that are spoiled. Chef Marc Rennhack has already earned a star for the restaurant. He spices up German cuisine with Spanish and French accents. The indulgence isn't exactly cheap, the delicious lunch menu costs around 48 euros. Compared to that, 200 euros for a double almost sounds like a good deal.

EAT in Stuttgart

Punto fisso

Have you had enough of Maultaschen? Then grab a pizza for a change. That is one of those perfect pizzas that far extend beyond the edge of the plate. True Italy lovers will even pass over the yummy pizzas and go for vitello tonnato, saltimbocca, crostini or scallopine. Lovely!   Punto Fisso is more than a pizzeria, it's a trendy meeting spot for the young and old, for bobos and the creative class, for students and the alternative, for the babbler and taciturn - and it has been for 16 years now. The ristorante is authentic, a trattoria that also works as a pub. In summer time it's simply wonderful to sit in the garden watching people and eating. You can talk about anything here, the funny, the melancholic, the philosophical and the banal. And nowhere does a glass of wine taste better than here.

Das Fässle

What should a gourmet absolutely eat in Stuttgart? Spend a night in the Fässle and eat as much as he can. Eva and Rudolf Schmölz put Haute Cuisine onto the tables of their restaurant. The owner and chef is dedicated to Swabian cuisine - with a French touch.   Put together your menu from different vegetable, fish and meat choices, and order one of two daily menus, which guarantees the perfect combination for your palate. You could start the fish menu, for example, with a surprise from the kitchen and then look forward to salmon tartar with potato-leek dumplings, rucola and oranges.   After that you can have sea bass fillet with wild garlic gnocci and as a dessert raspberry mousse with vanilla ice cream. While you feast, Eva Schmölz keeps the service staff on their toes. Whether you eat on the wonderful terrace or in the rustic, wood-panelled lounge room - a friendly service and diligent advice are part of the standard.

Tasca im Feui

At Tasca in Feui you will experience southern flair in Swabian country. The small restaurant offers Portuguese and Spanish cuisine, and the furnishing looks exactly how would you imagine in a family-run business: Tightly standing tables, not too many of them. Not very stylish but very cosy. The head of the house, Barry-James Hackh, greets you and serves olives, garlic dip and bread as a starter. His wife is the cook, and she really knows what she's doing. Whether you choose something from the daily menu or à la carte , it doesn't really matter. The fish platter for two with its great variety of tastes is particularly recommended. Attention: Sides are ordered extra, as is common in Spain and Portugal. And keep some room for the dessert - fans of Portugal know why!

SIGHTS in Stuttgart

Sights in Stuttgart
Literature walk

Are there actually any corners left in Stuttgart where no man or woman of letters would have been inspired to write? One doesn't know. We do know, however, that men and women of letters have left their traces in the Academy Garden, the Wilhelma Zoo, the Eugenstaffel, in the pedestrian area and the Palace Garden. The team of Hanh&Kusiek funnel this interest in poetic footsteps, offering literature walks where visitors stroll along those same steps.   You will hear all about the writers' past, including the reasonable, the amusing and the private. A walk over the cemetery is particularly nice, the one to poets' monuments informative. For families the children's tour is interesting, where everything revolves around fairy tales.

City library

It's always twice as fun if you do something in a foreign city that normally only locals do. Such as visiting city libraries. Try it out in Stuttgart at the Mailänder Platz.   In case of this new facility one is even prepared for sightseeing visitors. An audio guide leads through the architectonically interesting addition to the inner city of Stuttgart. Two routes can be chosen from in the guide: apart from a library route that introduces offer and usage there's also an architectural route which might be particularly interesting for city tourists. The latter will explain to you the extraordinary concept of the South Korean architect Eun Young Yi who has equipped the cuboid shaped building with an outer shell  of glass blocks and an inner one with glass. Don't miss the so-called heart, a room which is four levels high located in the middle of the building. Above the heart, you'll find a funnel-shaped gallery hall that is limited by a glass room - for a divine reading experience.

Wilhelma

Once upon a time... there were people with lots of money. For example King William I., who had a private garden built that would put row house owners on the brink of a nervous breakdown. Today the former retreat of the royal has been converted into a public garden, attracting 2.1 million visitors a year. Special feature: It's a zoological-botanical garden, with exotic animals as well as unusual plants. Free guided tours will help you when your biological and botanical knowledge is exhausted after the first few steps.   The complex was designed in a Moorish style by the architect Karl Ludwig von Zanth. The Swabian kign flirted with the idea of an Alhambra at the Neckar. Today the Moorish country house, the ballroom and the Damascene Hall are reminiscent of that. Take your time, there's a lot to discover that even turns the most hardened city dwellers into nature lovers: magnolia, lily pond, subtropical terraces and a sea of flowers. On top of everything you have lots of wild animals that you would expect in a zoo.
