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?

SIGHTS in Stuttgart

Sights in Stuttgart
Solitude Palace

The Schloss Solitude (Solitude Palace) is worth a visit simply because of its location on the heights southwest of Stuttgart, opening up to a magnificent view of the landscape. It was built on behalf of Duke Carl Eugen, between 1763 and 1769. The castle is the magical centre of a grand complex that is considered an impressive example of the late rococo.   Visitors can explore the inside of the castle throughout the year as part of guided tours, and they do this in great numbers: Stroll through the banquet rooms, the white hall, the music room and the meeting room, and visit the Duke's apartment to get in idea of how noblemen used to live their private lives. Carl, for example, liked to relax in the marble hall and the palm tree room. The ceiling paintings by Nicolas Guibal as well as the frescoes in the basement are particularly interesting.   In 1990, the Academy Solitude Palace has moved into the officer and cavalier buildings. The academy offers apartment-studios to young artists and hosts a number of events that promote aspiring young artists at the interface between the arts and sciences.

Flea market

If you come here you'll hit two fleas at one blow, because not only the flea market is great, the Karlsplatz, too, is worth a trip. In the middle of the square, which is lined by trees, you find a mighty stone lion. On Saturdays, however, the beast seems to disappear behind the immense accumulation of antiques, trinkets, useful and beautiful stuff. If you look for it you'll really find anything on this market. The quality is variable, you do have to push aside a lot of rubbish to find true gems. Yet this is part of the game, and locals have been enjoying it for 25 years now.   Two things that are absolutely part of a visit to the flea market: Dedicated haggling - something is always possible - and a small beer at the takeaway. Maybe a sausage to go with it and you've made your day.

Fernsehturm

Even if they are more and more often selected as landmarks or super sights, you don't really have to go up every television tower pointed out to you. In Stuttgart, however, you should definitely make the trip, since it's the first television tower that was built in the world. The pride of every Stuttgart resident is 217 metres high and has been sitting there since 1956. For 5 euros you may take the yellow lift to go up to the panorama platform. which is located at a height of 152 metres. The ride takes merely 44 seconds.   The view over the city and the vineyards is beautiful, the restaurant less so. Apparently they relied on the surrounding view to provide a sense of beauty and style. The food, however, is surprisingly good and affordable.

EAT in Stuttgart

Cube Restaurant

The Cube Restaurant is located on the top floor of the Stuttgart Art Museum, guaranteeing a unique perspective: Wherever you turn your head, you are sure to have a fantastic view of the city centre, since the Cube is not only high but also entirely glassed-in. The architecture of the façade is so impressive that designer Heinz Witthöft concentrated on the essential in the interior. Noble restraint, a lot of style but little colour. The motto? An unforgettable dining experience in a spacious and unique urban setting.   The cuisine is upscale and so are the prices. On the other hand, the grilled shrimp with avocado cream, colourful summer salads with strawberry-pepper vinaigrette and turkey breast, the potato gnocchi in cream cheese sauce and braised rabbit legs in white wine sauce are just unbeatable. Tip: If you want to enjoy the great view for cheaper, you can come in the afternoon for coffee and cake.

Épicerie fine

Cornelia and Gert Habener, the owners of the épicerie fine, love France; so much so that they apparently had a hard time coming to terms with Swabian cooking. So they started to import treats and ingredients from France. What they make from it? Croissants, cheese platters, ratatouille or entrecôte. The lunch menus for about 10 euros are particularly popular, and all of Stuttgart comes here to celebrate French cuisine. Who's surprised? The cuisine is light but excellent, and the carefully chosen glass of wine is a blessing.   The shop is located in a former bakery, which was renovated and radiates in its renewed old charm. The guests cannot help but enjoy life and devote themselves to the most beautiful things in life: eating, drinking, music, talking, laughter, art - in short, everything that sweetens one's life. Come for the petit déjeuner, than you'll know exactly what we mean: The épicerie fine is a piece of Paris in the middle of Stuttgart.

Plenum

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!

STAY in Stuttgart

Waldhotel Stuttga

This hotel kills two birds with one stone. It's close to the city centre, just like you wish for as a city hopper. Additionally it's located in a quiet, green area - which is unusual for a hotel with such a proximity to the city centre. If you come home from your shopping expedition or cultural trip in the city you can afterwards take a stroll through the forest or have a match on the tennis court. In the fitness and sauna area with view on the forest relaxation and recharging your batteries are on the daily agenda. The 94 rooms and two suites are dominated by a modern country style, combining historical and contemporary design. In the recently refurbished hotel complex the guest finds among natural materials like oak, marble and felt a harmonious atmosphere for recreation - and in this way experiences an exciting connection to the forest in front of the door. 

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
