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?

Playhouse
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!

Breuninger
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!

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.

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.
