Where to stayin Stuttgart

Stuttgart has 10th-century heritage combined with modern refinement, from fast cars to wine and art. Discover all this from your base in one of the great hotels across Stuttgart's neighborhoods. It's a compact city to stroll around, although you will need comfortable shoes to navigate all the "stäffele" (stairs). Use bicycles, buses, the U-Bahn, trams, and taxis to pick up the pace, or rent a Porsche in the place where it was invented. The city's 23 neighborhoods include the center, best for seeing major cultural attractions, while the outskirts offer vineyards and forests. With its mineral baths and stunning green spaces, a relaxing vacation is easy to access, no matter where you stay in Stuttgart.

Best Places to Stay for Food & Drink

Stay in Stuttgart-Mitte for typical taverns and the Market Hall with its organic produce and regional specialties. Find a place to stay in Bohnenviertel to experience a village vibe while exploring cobbled lanes leading to vibrant cafés. This is a good neighborhood for trying traditional Swabian dishes, such as maultaschen (ravioli) and spätzle (a local type of pasta), at museum and gallery restaurants such as Bertha's at Mercedes Benz. To take a vinicultural tour, the wine-growing neighborhood of Uhlbach is a great place to book a room. Those coming for Oktoberfest, the beer festival starting in September, will find accommodations in Bad Cannstatt best for the event.
