Premium Economy Class


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?

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.

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!

What to see in Stuttgart

What to see in Stuttgart
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.
