A prominent south German city and the state capital of Baden-Wurttemberg, Stuttgart may be well known as a major industrial centre, but it is also a great place to spend a holiday. With many shops, museums, theatres and restaurants to enjoy, as well as beautiful forests and vineyards, it is an excellent place to go for a relaxing break.
Exploring the city and things to do
An important city for the car industry, Stuttgart is sometimes referred to as the 'the cradle of the automobile'. Mercedes-Benz and Porsche both manufacture cars in Stuttgart and they also have museums, so you can discover more about these world-famous companies. The Porsche Museum
offers cool experiences in incredible architecture and the Mercedes-Benz Museum
is both futuristic and fun. Many technology and engineering firms, including Bosch, Hewlett-Packard and Daimler-Chrysler, also have major offices in the city, making it a popular destination for business travellers.
Stuttgart is also the perfect place to go for a city break. Visit historic attractions like Stuttgart Old Castle, The New Castle and the King Wilhelm Palace. Why not spend a night out in one of the many bars, clubs and restaurants in the city centre as well before heading back to the hotel? For those that would like a more artistic experience, the art museum ‘Kunstmuseum
’ is a great place to ponder works from European artists. You can also enjoy an evening at the State Theatre, or explore the State Gallery
and its huge collection.
