The State Capital - So Much, So Near
Nestled in one of the largest winegrowing regions in Germany, Stuttgart, the state capital of Baden-Württemberg fascinates visitors from all over the world with its charm and lust for life. The pulsing metropolis not only inspires with its beautiful panorama and numerous tourist attractions, but also with its cultural diversity and range of high-quality international sports events.
Stuttgart - motor city
Cars are often the first thing that people in Germany and abroad think of when Stuttgart is mentioned. Names such as Gottlieb Daimler, Carl Benz, Wilhelm Maybach and Ferdinand Porsche are closely connected to Stuttgart. The Mercedes-Benz Museum and the Porsche Museum illustrate the development of the car in a fascinating way.
Stuttgart - city of culture and wide-ranging leisure activities
The collections and exhibitions in Stuttgart's museums are also fascinating and diverse: a good example is the Staatsgalerie Stuttgart, one of the most visited art museums in Germany. A jewel for all fans of architecture is the internationally renowned Weissenhofsiedlung and Museum in the Haus Le Corbusier. Performances by the Stuttgart Ballet and the multiple award winning State Opera in the magnificent opera house are also world-famous. The range of music includes two fantastic musicals, which are performed in the SI-Erlebnis-Centrum.
The Wilhelmina, the only zoological-botanical garden in Europe, is an experience for the whole family. The three spas in Bad Cannstatt offer sparkling, healthy pleasure. Shopping until your heart's content can be had on the Königsstrasse, one of the longest and most beautiful pedestrian areas in Europe, and in the lovely Market Hall.
Or why not simply while away the night in the city's many bars and clubs? Year-round festivals such as the convivial Weindorf, the rustic Cannstatter Volksfest and the traditional Stuttgarter Weihnachtsmarkt show the state capital to be a charming host.
Stuttgart - city of sport
Stuttgart continues to operate at the highest sporting level even after the FIFA World Cup. A large number of international championships and sports tournaments have been and continue to be successfully put on here.
