This German city offers visitors wilderness adventures, world-class theaters, museums and galleries as well as a thriving food and wine scene.

From museums, historical cars and vineyards, to beautiful hiking and biking trails and picturesque landscapes, Stuttgart’s attractions are varied and diverse. Located in southern Germany, Stuttgart’s natural beauty ranges from the dramatic scenery of the Black Forest to downtown woodland and parks. To get a sense of the beautiful urban green spaces, go to Schlossgarten, which is the start of a series of interconnecting parks that locals call Das Grüne U (The Green U) because of the shape it forms around the city. Schlossgarten, home to the Neues Schloss (New Palace), merges with Rosensteinpark. A short distance to the west of Rosensteinpark is Killesberg park. Cycling on a rented bike is a fun way to explore these parks. On your ride, look out for beer gardens, and the botanical gardens and zoo at Wilhelma. Whilst Stuttgart charms with abundant outdoor adventures, the city also has plenty of indoor attractions. Car enthusiasts will enjoy the exhibits at the museums of Porsche and Mercedes. Learn about the region’s history at the Landesmuseum and admire the work of famous artists like Picasso at the Staatsgalerie. Don’t miss the chance to watch the world-famous Stuttgart Ballet, which is based at the Staatstheater, along with the city’s opera and drama companies. Food and drink plays a healthy role in Stuttgart life. Germany’s biggest wine-producing region surrounds the city. At the Stuttgart Wine Festival you can sample around 500 different wines, including riesling and trollinger. Meanwhile, beer lovers meet at Cannstatter Volksfest, which is sometimes called the Stuttgart Beer Festival.Stuttgart has an efficient public transport system and is easy to get around. The Stadtbahn is the best option for short distances and it stops at most of the places you’ll want to visit. Most major attractions are just a short walk from Schlossplatz. These include the baroque-style Neues Schloss, Altes Schloss (Old Palace) and the shopping district on Königstrasse.
