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?

What to see in Stuttgart

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.

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.

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.

Night Delight
The pleasures of the night are the main points on the agenda of the concept store Night Delight in Stuttgart. Spread over 35 square metres of minimalist architecture Ulrike Brucher offers a range of fine products: lingerie (for example by Huit, Stella McCartney, Princess Tam Tam), cosmetics (Escentric Molecules, Jimmyjane) and jewellery (Saskia Diez, Arena CPH). She explicitly wants her customers to sample the fragrances or slip into the sheer silk pieces. In the meantime you can taste the hand-made chilli chocolate. The in-house Ecoline received the must-have seal by women's magazine Elle. The store concept even exceeds its opening hours. In this sense, you can find the so-called Slip-O-Mat by Night Delight in selected bars in Stuttgart and Berlin that provides female nighthawks wearing the wrong undies with the essentials for a hot adventure: a fine string and a pack of teeth cleaning tablets.
