Attractions and Places to Visit in Stuttgart

Wine enthusiasts, classic car fanatics and culture buffs can all find something to love in Stuttgart. In southwestern Germany, on the route between Paris and Munich, Stuttgart is a regional capital that packs a widely diverse array of attractions into a refreshingly green city. The industrial mecca is home to some of Germany's most well-known automakers, fashion designers and cultural troupes. If you are looking for great experiences for all the family, Stuttgart and region offer a wide range of leisure attractions for a day trip – fun and excitement for all ages. Discover the many attractive excursions on offer!

The main hub of the Baden-Württemberg region and within a five-hour train ride of European favorites like Paris, Amsterdam, Brussels, and Zurich, you'd be silly not to make Stuttgart at least a stop on a European travel itinerary. Then again, the adventures to be had in the area are not to be underestimated. Germany's largest lake (Constance), it's most picturesque river (the Rhine), and the Black Forest are veritable day trip destinations that draw the jealous ire of other German regions.

Because Stuttgart has a more compact city center than many other European cities, you can see everything you'd want to see by traveling on foot. There is a vast selection of green space in the city called Das Grüne U, which is actually a collection of gardens and parks that form a “U” shape around city center. It starts in the Schlossgarten (where the incredible Neues Schloss is located), follows through Rosensteinpark (where you can stop at the zoo, Wilhelma) and Killesberg Park, which is an incredible floral display come springtime.
