Stuttgart’s Theatre Scene
If you seek top-quality performing arts, Stuttgart won’t disappoint. The State Theatre and Opera House adjoining the central Schlossgarten hosts a vibrant calendar of theatre, opera and ballet, ranging from classic to contemporary. From Shakespeare to Schiller, from Bizet to behind the scenes tours, the venue has your culture fix covered. For something a bit different, try the Theaterhaus Stuttgart, a strikingly modern performing arts venue between Rosenstein and Killesberg Parks, or Strotmanns Magic Lounge, a cosy venue that gets you up close and personal magic, and it matters little if you don’t speak German. The SI-Centrum complex in Möhringen boasts two world-class event theatres, the Apollo and the Palladium.
Eating and Drinking in Stuttgart
Stuttgart offers a fantastic range of dining options, with cafes and restaurants serving distinctively Swabian dishes, all the German classics and every major international cuisine to suit every diner’s budget. Naturally the city centre is filled with eating options, ranging from several Michelin-starred establishments to top-value snacks on the go. Do make sure to check out such local specialities as the Spätzle egg noodles and the Maultaschen meat ravioli, and wash it down with a fine Swabian beer or wine – the red Trollinger grape is world-renowned. If you’re lucky enough to visit in autumn then wend your way to Stuttgart’s Volkfest in NeckarPark, a beer, sausage and pork-knuckle extravaganza to rival Munich. Prost!
Day Trips out of Stuttgart
Stuttgart’s environs are a pleasant patchwork of gentle river valleys, vineyards and prettily historic villages. Tübingen is a particularly unspoiled town, quintessentially German in its half-timbered houses and quaint market squares. Ludwigsburg to the north is a Baroque fantasy, a palace and model town once home to the Dukes of Baden-Württemberg. And if you have time, head south to the miniature Romantic perfection of Lichtenstein Castle.
