Things to Do in Stuttgart
Stuttgart remains the home to Mercedes-Benz and Porsche, and a visit to each museum is a must for every visitor, car buff or not. The Mercedes Museum in Neckar Park is a gleaming vision of retro-futurist architecture, telling the story of the motor car from the pioneering designs of Gottlieb Daimler and Karl Benz to the present day. The Porsche Museum fascinates in equal measure with the stories of the Volkswagen Beetle, designed by Ferdinand Porsche, and of the marque’s glorious racing history.
Stuttgart’s city centre is a place of green parks and historic squares, interspersed with lively shopping thoroughfares. Schlossplatz is a handsome space, bordered by the Renaissance Old Castle and the grandly baroque New Palace, a perfect spot to have a bite and plan your next expedition. Schillerplatz and Karlsplatz are postcard-pretty squares, surrounded by historic buildings and museums. Königstraße, the main shopping street, is a great place to shop for distinctively Swabian souvenirs, and the Wilhelma Zoo and Botanical Gardens is home to a dazzling diversity of animals and plants. Stuttgart is also within easy reach of the Black Forest and the Swabian Alps.
