What to Do near Stuttgart Airport
Near Stuttgart Airport is the vast International Congress Centre Stuttgart, a conference centre and trade-fair location that can welcome up to 10,000 visitors. Built predominantly of glass, it’s quite a spectacle even if you’re not in town for a convention. Since it opened in 2007, it has worked its way into Germany’s rankings of top ten locations to do business. With Stuttgart a 30-minute bus ride away, visitors have access to the parks and historic squares of the Baden-Württemberg region’s capital. Best known for its automotive heritage as birthplace of the motorcar, Stuttgart remains home of Mercedes-Benz and Porsche, which both have typically impressive museums.
Filderstadt itself has Fildorado, a fun-filled indoor and outdoor swimming centre, which is a pleasant spot to wile away a few hours. Or you could head to Stuttgart’s city centre; Königstraße has some good shopping if you’re looking for a distinctively Swabian souvenir, and you can pick up a designer bargain at one of the upmarket Breuningerland outlet malls in Sindelfingen in the south west and Ludwigsburg to the north of Stuttgart.
