Have you ever been to Stuttgart?
Stuttgart is Germany’s sixth-biggest city and one of its most popular tourist destinations. Not only is it surrounded by one of the biggest winegrowing regions in Germany, the city is famous as a cultural paradise. Ballet, opera or music… Which would you like to do first?
Stuttgart is extremely well known for its industry, especially the automotive industry. For fans of the fast lane, we have two great suggestions: The Mercedes Benz Museum and the Porsche Museum. Two companies of worldwide renown, which have their headquarters in the city.
If the temperatures are pleasant enough for outdoor activities, you absolutely must visit the Wilhelma Park, one of the biggest zoos and botanic garden complexes in Europe. The complex is located near the Rosenstein Castle, which is also a great place to visit.
Stuttgart boasts a vast array of green spaces, making the city even more special. The most popular parks are the Schlossgarten, the Rosensteinpark and the Killesbergpark.
Where gastronomy is concerned, Stuttgart comes as a surprise.
There are several typical dishes, the best-known being Maultaschen – sausage and spinach ravioli – and Spätzle – typical German pasta served with fried onions, garden vegetables and sausage. Wash them down with a German wine made from Trollinger grapes or, if you prefer, one of the various German beers.
Located on the banks of the River Neckar, the city offers a wide and varied range of shops. If shopping is your thing, you will definitely want to visit the street called Konigstrasse! This huge street is home to a vast array of shops, restaurants and various other attractions. As for finding somewhere to stay, there’s no need for concern. There is no shortage of hotels in this city. 🙂 Hotels in classic style, such as the Waldhotel Stuttgartor the Le Meridien; ones geared more to business travellers, such as Jaz in the City; or the Designhotel Der Zauberlehrling, for those who appreciate a more modern style.
Stuttgart is also an ideal choice for Erasmus exchange students. If you’re thinking of doing an exchange, it’s worth knowing that this city has eight universities. The most highly-regarded one is the University of Stuttgart, which enjoys worldwide renown and offer a vast array of courses. And since there’s more to exchanges than studying, the nightlife is sure to please: For example, you could start your evening off by sipping a cocktail in the street called Theodor-Heuss-Strasse.
