Stuttgart Things to Do

  • Wihelma, Stuttgart

    Wihelma

    Park Wilhelma, Home to botanical gardens and the city’s renowned zoo. Here you can walk along the banks of the Neckar River. I didn't actually have time to go to the zoo or the gardens. I would have liked knowing about it before arriving in Stuttgart, so I tell you about it here.

  • Porsche, Stuttgart

    Porsche

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    When I first came to this museum twelve years ago it was little more than a handful of Porsche cars crammed into a former workshop behind the showroom. It was a major disappointment. Not any more. Today there is a stunning purpose built museum featuring nearly a hundred cars from all eras of the Porsche marque. The place is huge, with many...

    This tranquil and open space proves a welcome relief from the intense hustle and bustle of the adjacent Konigstrasse. The square sits basking in the glory of the enormous neo-classical Neues Schloss, with two fountains flanking the central Jubilaeumssaule, a great towering monument erected to celebrate the 25th anniversary of King Wilhelm I of...

  • Swabian Food, Stuttgart

    Swabian Food

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Close to the Hauptbahnhof, a block away. This elegant restaurant had many Swabian antiques and is one of the few places you can order food prepared in the Swabian style, each dish is individually prepared. Schnitzel, Fladlesupp, camembert, three glasses of wine and a tass kaffe. The food was much better here than at the train station.

    Calwer-Eck-Bräu

    4 out of 5 stars

    The ambience is very casual. We went to the buffet on Sunday and there was a large variety of choice, a salad bar, dessert area, hot dihses, cold dishes, breads, and such. Beer is extra and is good quality. I liked the salad bar actually, very fresh. The hot dishes were nice. We both had the pork with muchsoom sauce. I had roasted potato and Jeff...

    Irish Pubs

    Biddy's is a bar where "everybody knows your name", you walk in and immediately feel as if you have walked into a room of friends. People are friendly, and there is a large number of English speakers mingling about (this is where the Army folks come, the American college students, the British rugby players, and the occasional au pair) So you never...

    --New since last year, at the bus you have to go in at the front and show the bus driver the ticket.-- If you drive with public transport you should know about different ways to stop and drop out of the transport systems. In the S-Bahn the train stops at every station and you can open the door only when the train is standing. In the U-Bahn...

    This is an awesome shop. They sell wine, sherry, vinegars, oils, and spirits. They have barrels along the walls that you can taste samples of different spirits.

    People

    My impression is that the people of Stuttgart are very nice and polite. They may hesitate to speak English; maybe they feel that that their English is not good enough? So if you speak German it will help you. Otherwise I would advise you to speak slowly English. Don’t ask if they speak English, they may say that they don't speak it. Try to make...

Stuttgart Warnings and Dangers

  • Public Transport, Stuttgart

    Public Transport

    This seemed kind of odd and confusing to us. Trains just don't go North or South, East and West. You can get off a train going West and get on the next on the same numbered track and it will go East. So, be careful. If you miss a stop and think you can just get the next train on the other side going back to that stop, don't count on it.

    The amount of luggage is up to you but if you plan on using the railway system to get from the airport to downtown Stuttgart or a nearby hotel, I would suggest packing in a way that you can pull or carry your bags. I had seen a few people try to pull two suitcases and have two carry-on bags over their shoulder. It appeared rather difficult to...

A man approached and asked for money. I said, in English, 'I don't speak German.' It was the politest response I could think of. He just wandered off. Several...
