Schillerplatz
Holiday Travel Guide

Tour a 16th-century public square and visit its renovated ancient structures including a castle, church and a gothic building. 

Go to Stuttgart’s old city center to stroll around Schillerplatz, a 16th-century cobblestone square known for its castle, church, museum and flower market. The buildings are reconstructions, as the original structures were destroyed by fire during World War II.

Start your visit by surveying the memorial to one of Württemberg’s most famous sons, the German poet, philosopher and historian Friedrich von Schiller. The large statue in the center of the square was erected in 1839 and Schillerplatz was later named in his honor.

Stop by the State Museum of Württemberg inside the Old Castle, a stronghold that dates back to the 10th century. Examine archeological relics and look at the Crown Jewels of Württemberg. See the museum’s collection of musical instruments inside the late-gothic Fruchkasten building.

Photograph the 13th-century Collegiate Church with its two uneven towers. Step inside to see sculptures, the large pipe organ and crypt. You can also take a guided tour to learn more about the building’s history, architecture and the rulers who are buried here. For details, including when tours are conducted in English, visit the church’s website. Guided tours are free, although donations are appreciated.

Dine on grilled steak with onions, homemade bread pudding and other regional cuisines at Alte Kanzlei (Old Chancellery). The 16th-century building was once an important government office and is now a restaurant. Come for the square’s flower market on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings.

If you are in the city in late August and early September put the Stuttgart Wine Village on your travel itinerary. This is one of the largest wine festivals in Europe and Schillerplatz is covered with stalls selling some of the region’s finest wines. There are free tasting sessions, food stalls and musical performances.

Schillerplatz is a short walk southwest of Stuttgart's main square, Schlossplatz. The central location makes it easily accessible by public transportation. There is metered parking in nearby streets and in the car park beneath the square’s cobblestones.
