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?

SIGHTS in Stuttgart

Sights in Stuttgart

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.

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.


It's been a lot of work, the new playhouse in Stuttgart. As early as August 2010 the leading state theatre has started to strip down the old stage machinery including the auditorium and foyer. They got rid of more than 250 tons of steel, the mentioned areas have been completely gutted. Re-opening: June 2013.   When the view in the auditorium is impaired one needs a steeper floor. Preferably a parquet floor and not a linoleum covered floor. Et voilá they say in the playhouse, topped up and exchanged! More than 160 seats were too much - that now got knocked out! For an improved acoustic. Parts of the foyer got a new stone floor and a new illuminated ceiling, the natural facade was thoroughly cleaned. In addition they built three double-deck podiums and installed a revolving stage. For even more art appreciation! Bravo!

SHOPPING in Stuttgart

Shopping in Stuttgart

Breuninger is known in Stuttgart as a fashion and lifestyle brand. Since last autumn the long-established company can be proud of additional 2,000 square metres for shoes in the flagship store on the Marktstraße. But let's take one at a time!   In 1881 Eduard Breuninger opened his first store on the Münzstraße in Stuttgart. With a little sensation: he begins with a clearance sale. Eight years later the next surprise: the employees are allowed to take off Sundays - quite unusual for that time. Also holidays are to be introduced. 70 years later the next Breuninger vision follows: the Stuttgart company is the first company in Europe who would allow cashless payments via debit card. In addition, Heinz Breuninger installs a kindergarten for his customers as well as a garage and several restaurants. In 2006 the above-mentioned flagship store opens in order to display - six years later on the lower ground - high heels, flats and sneakers - 250 brands altogether. That's lived innovation that we like!


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.

Fetter Clothing

Göppingen lies almost exactly halfway between Stuttgart and Ulm, and is hardly known as a fashion Mecca. Nevertheless, two guys got together there to turn their shared love of fashion and neon prints into the label Fetter Clothing. Revelling through the Stuttgart night you will see them more and more often: The shirts, hoodies and bags that are so characteristic one will always place them correctly. The not entirely secret to success: Print, print, print, in all the colours that people used to love in the 80s. You'll see neon sunglasses on jumpers and even the modified smiley has a revival. The bags are simple shoppers made of fabric, which are perfect for going to the library or swimming.

STAY in Stuttgart

Stay in Stuttgart
Hotel Unger

If you want to drop into your freshly made hotel bed right after arriving in town, you should book a room in the Hotel Unger. It is only one minute away from the train station, right in city centre. The disadvantage: It is not exactly tranquil. The advantage: The availability of public transport is perfect, and many highlights in the city can be reached on foot. The hotel is therefore the perfect place for business travellers and jet-setters. The 130 rooms are clean and furnished with natural materials, so that allergic persons can spend the night here without problems. The breakfast is legendary, and you will be perfectly set for a busy day in the city, whether you are on a private or business mission: smoked salmon, shrimp and the best regional delicacies. Doubles start at about 175 euros a night.  

Le Meridien

If you book a room in the Meridien, you know what to expect: Luxury of the most sophisticated kind. In this case directly in front of the magnificent, green Schlossgarten (palace garden). The 281 rooms have an elegant and modern touch, and if you'd prefer something even more up-scale you can book one of the 25 suites. Whichever category you decide on, all rooms provide a perfect retreat after a turbulent day in the city. Nothing seems overdone here, the colour combinations are subtle and the precious furniture is pleasantly reserved. The service is complemented with the fantastic restaurant Le Cassoulet, which offers a great mix of regional and French cooking. The spa area lures you with a wonderful pool, steam bath, sauna and a number of treatments. Whether you are on holidays or working, in the Meridian everything is a pleasure. Doubles start at 193 euros a night.

Hotel Seybold

A city tour with a four-legged companion? Why not. In the Hotel Seybold pets are warmly welcomed. This is said and done easily, since the villa from the turn of the century is located in the countryside, at the edge of Stuttgart. You can enjoy the city from a wonderful perspective day and night - the view over the nightly sea of lights is simply unbeatable. Who else has enjoyed this view? Jose Carreras, for example, Michael Schumacher and the entire team of flowers and flowerpots on the balconies. The place has a calm and family-style atmosphere, including a very personal service that starts with a hearty breakfast. The rooms are spacious and airy, and each of them is individually furnished. In the Seybold you feel less like a guest, but more like a family friend. If you want to cook for yourself and or travel with your family, you can rent one of the apartments with kitchen. Doubles start at 95 euros a night.

EAT in Stuttgart

Eat in Stuttgart

If you have enough of the bustling Königstraße shopping mile, just follow the flow to the listed building of the Parliament of Baden-Wuerttemberg. Here you fill find the Plenum, a culinary oasis of calm in Stuttgart. In principle you can, while waiting for your order to arrive, continue with sightseeing: The restaurant is entirely glassed-in and offers the most beautiful view of the Eckensee, the castle, the opera and the palace gardens. If you look around the inside of the restaurant you will discover dark parquet flooring, discreet tables and Phillip Starck chairs.   This is where the chic and elegant locals come to enjoy coffee and cake or one of the many fascinating main dishes. The menu includes extraordinary delicacies made of primarily regional products, without appearing over-the-top. Whether a sandwich with buffalo mozzarella or braised veal cheeks, everything is reasonably priced. Except for the dessert. Yet those are really quite something: Coconut tart on sheep's milk yogurt-chamomile ice cream and papaya sauce, pralines of goat and cow milk cream cheese with pepper compote or sweet caprese - buffalo mozzarella sorbet with strawberry salad, fried Thai basil, vanilla olive oil and pine seed brittle. Yummy!

Wine tavern

The Bohnenviertel (beans district) is the oldest and perhaps most charming neighbourhood of Stuttgart. Although some things have changed here, you'll still find three very original wine taverns - in the rustic restaurant "Zur Kiste" (At the box). Whence the name? We don't know. Maybe because almost everything here is made of wood, because the three little taverns are stacked like boxes onto one another, or because there is so little space that you almost feel like you are stuck in a box. Never mind, it only makes it more cosy.   As a base for the wine you get Maultaschen (Swabian ravioli), meat fritters or briskets of beef. The wine is slightly overpriced, in order to sell more of the beer from the in-house brewery. However, if you come for the traditional Viertelesschlotzen (Swabian vernacular for drinking quarters of wine), you might have to bite the bullet. In any event, you are not alone: There are artisans, politicians, professors, directors, artists, the talkative and the quiet.

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!
