An Apartment Hotel Stay in Stuttgart
Stuttgart apartment hotels combine the best of home comforts and hotel amenities. Whether you are a business traveller on an extended stay, a family seeking the convenience of a home away from home or a visitor with time to see something of Stuttgart beyond the beaten track, an apart-hotel is an option worth considering.
With time on your side, you have the freedom to view Stuttgart’s chief attractions – the Mercedes-Benz Museum and Porsche Museum, the Old Castle and New Palace, Königstraße shopping area. But why not step off the beaten track and explore Stuttgart’s quirkier corners? Take a ride on the historic Standseilbahn funicular train ride to a hilltop cemetery with splendid views. Or take tea in the pretty rotunda of the Teehaus in Weissenburgpark. Or you could peruse the porky pleasures of the Schweine Museum, Stuttgart’s very own pig museum.
Things to Do around Stuttgart
If you have time to explore further afield from your apart-hotel accommodation, Stuttgart is ringed with interesting satellite towns and attractive landscapes. Ludwigsburg, to the north, is a great place to stay for any culture vulture, with one of Europe’s finest Baroque palaces, once home to the Dukes of Baden-Württemberg and with a host of features both grand and quirky. Southwest of Stuttgart, Sindelfingen is home to a superb Breuningerland shopping centre as well as a vast Mercedes assembly plant, where guided tours are available. And stay in the rolling Swabian hills and valleys for views filled with vineyards and pretty villages, with a wide range of scenic walks and wine tours.
Walking and Exploring around Stuttgart
Strike out south from Stuttgart and you will discover the picturesque town of Tübingen, with its quaintly cobbled lanes, half-timbered houses, and splendid castle, city hall and market square. South again and you come to the Swabian Jura, or Swabian Alps, a splendidly wild destination for climbers and walkers. And venture to the southwest to the Black Forest, the deep woods that inspired the brothers Grimm, laced with mile upon mile of walking trails and fairytale villages. Here you can see the mighty Danube at its source, and in winter you can ski on the pistes around Mount Feldberg.
