Stately Stuttgart has a proud history dating back to Roman times, but today it has a sleek urban image and is known as the birthplace of the modern motorcar with Porsche, Mercedes and Daimler all headquartered here. But, Stuttgart’s flashy image belies it sometimes rustic charms. The city is surrounded by vineyards, there are springs and gardens to enjoy and cultural events all through the summer.
Peak season runs from May to October when the weather is mild and there are countless cultural events taking place around the city. Things reach a crescendo at the end of the summer, with the Cannstatter Volksfest, where beer festival meets funfair, in September and October. At Christmas Stuttgart twinkles with festive cheer as it hosts a huge four-week long festive market. If you want to avoid the crowds travel in spring or late autumn to enjoy the changing seasons.
If you are visiting Stuttgart during one of the major festivals be sure to book well in advance. But whenever you travel there are plenty of ways to find a cheap flight when you book with Expedia.
Use the ‘Nearby airports’ option under your departure and arrival points to find alternative fares. Stuttgart is less than a two-hour drive from Munich and Frankfurt.
Having some leeway with your itinerary also helps. The ‘Show flexible dates’ option allows you to compare prices on different days.
You can filter your results by flight duration, airline, cost, ticket type and other criteria using the Show options menu and the buttons on the left of the search results.
