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?

SHOPPING in Stuttgart

Shopping in Stuttgart
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.

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.

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.

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.

Goldberg

Is this still noble or kitsch? Hard to say. At least the search for gold will find an end in this exceptional place. The owner of the Cube has converted the old Schwabenlandhalle into a top-class restaurant: Gold on the walls, gold at the bar, along with dark wooden floors and subtle, fresh floral decoration. In the Goldberg every dinner turns into a feast, and when it comes to ambience the noblesse of the place cannot be topped. The kitchen spoils you with timeless classics, with the duo Michael Bahn and Rainer Rupps encouraging one another to achieve ever greater results. Would you like a menu suggestion?  Let's start with a colourful summer flower salad with grilled tuna and watermelon, then white tomato cream soup with a baked shrimp cigarillo. The main course includes rabbit leg with creamy corn polenta, corn cob tempura and vanilla pepper cream, and for dessert cheesecake with raspberries on caramelised puffed rice slices and lavender ice cream. Tip: If prices get too hot for you, you should come around noon for the three-course lunch menu. At 27,- euros this is a fair opportunity to get a taste of the gold rush.

Punto fisso

Have you had enough of Maultaschen? Then grab a pizza for a change. That is one of those perfect pizzas that far extend beyond the edge of the plate. True Italy lovers will even pass over the yummy pizzas and go for vitello tonnato, saltimbocca, crostini or scallopine. Lovely!   Punto Fisso is more than a pizzeria, it's a trendy meeting spot for the young and old, for bobos and the creative class, for students and the alternative, for the babbler and taciturn - and it has been for 16 years now. The ristorante is authentic, a trattoria that also works as a pub. In summer time it's simply wonderful to sit in the garden watching people and eating. You can talk about anything here, the funny, the melancholic, the philosophical and the banal. And nowhere does a glass of wine taste better than here.

STAY in Stuttgart

Alex 30 Hostel

Whether in an apartment, a double or a dorm room - at the Hostel Alex you always have a comfy stay. The idea is just as simple as it is successful: You combine the service of a hotel with the prices of a hostel. The rooms are simply but beautifully furnished, and those who are out and about a lot won't make much use of a luxurious hotel, anyway. Instead of gold fixtures, antiquities and knick-knacks you get a hearty breakfast and nice people from all over Europe that you can get to know along the way.   If you want to stay longer and cater for yourself, then an apartment would be perfect for you. If you book early enough, maybe the one with the rooftop terrace will still be available. Doubles start at about 56 euros a night, and the big apartment at 90 euros (for two persons).

Arcotel Camino

Once people splashed in the water where now there is an extravagant hotel. The building of the former bathhouse complex is listed, and so the façade continues to look like the original from 1890: It was renovated with a great sense of style, combining old with new elements.   The highlights of this elegant house are the crystal chandeliers in the lobby and the classy, modern bathrooms. The industrial designer Harald Schreiber is responsible for this perfect blend between the chic and functional.   The heart of the house is the restaurant Weissenhof, and the soul the bar Scala. The Weissenhof offers a creative combination of Austrian and Swabian cuisine that is of the highest standards, and in the Scala you can kiss every day goodnight - which is why it's popular not only with hotel guests but also other visitors. Doubles start at 80 euros a night.

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. 

SIGHTS in Stuttgart

Sights in Stuttgart
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.

Art Museum

In 2005, the fantastic new building was inaugurated and since then people keep wondering: What's more spectacular, the building, whose glass shell shines brightly at night, or the objects that are displayed on 5,000 m² inside? The collection is grouped around four topics: The ornament, the subversive-ironic strategy, the transition from the free to the applied arts and the political-sociocritical approach. The latter is characterized by Otto Dix - the museum owns the biggest collection of the expressionist, including some masterpieces from the 20th century. Yet also Adolf Hölzel, Willi Baumeister, Fritz Winter and Dieter Roth are well worth seeing. The collection spans from the 18th century to the present, and if you get tired from looking at so much art, you can recover your spirits on the top floor. The restaurant Cube is known for great food and a wonderful view of the city. If you don't have much time, just get an espresso in the bar o.T.

Literature walk

Are there actually any corners left in Stuttgart where no man or woman of letters would have been inspired to write? One doesn't know. We do know, however, that men and women of letters have left their traces in the Academy Garden, the Wilhelma Zoo, the Eugenstaffel, in the pedestrian area and the Palace Garden. The team of Hanh&Kusiek funnel this interest in poetic footsteps, offering literature walks where visitors stroll along those same steps.   You will hear all about the writers' past, including the reasonable, the amusing and the private. A walk over the cemetery is particularly nice, the one to poets' monuments informative. For families the children's tour is interesting, where everything revolves around fairy tales.
