Stuttgart Travel Guide

by our Germany expert Terry Emery
 
Terry EmeryStuttgart in Swabia, Southern Germany, is perhaps Europe’s best example of how to combine major heavy industry with an attractive, spacious environment. Built on hills and valleys, it has much open parkland, and the surrounding vineyards on the R. Neckar start around 1,500 metres from the very centre. Its repute rests mainly on the car, of course. Porsche and Mercedes have their homes here and the VW Beetle was designed by Ferdinand Porsche, though manufactured elsewhere. Both companies have very stylish museums that are worth a visit by non-petrolheads, just for their futuristic architecture. The city has four major parks including the famous Wilhelma Botanical Gardens and Zoo. There is an ‘old castle’ (AD 950) and a ‘new’ castle (mere 18th century). As a German town, Stuttgart has its fests – more real fairs than pure beer celebrations (good though local beer is). There’s a Spring Fair in April, the Volksfest in Sept/Oct, and for good measure a smaller one in Summer.
