Schloss Solitude

This beautiful Schloss can be accessed via public bus (Number 92). It is located approximately 30 minutes from the city center. This stop is highly recommended for those visiting the city of Stuttgart. Provided the weather is good, this location would be ideal for a nice afternoon with family and/or loved ones. Bring some snacks, towels and enjoy the well maintained green grass, the sun and the lovely view. This building was built as a singular building between 1764 – 1769 and has grown to become the building it is today with various functions.

Villa Berg

Located approximately 10 minutes by Underground-train from the Central station, this park is fitting for visitors who are looking for a quiet place for a run/walk or even for a relaxing time with friends. Within the park lies a palace that belonged to the nobles at the beginning of the 20th century. This palace holds great architectural significance. It‘s a lost place, but however, this adds to the character and history of this site and makes it an even more interesting place to visit. Not forgetting, there is a playground for kids as well.

Santiago de Chile Platz

Located about 8 minutes from the city center using the metro, this place is not clearly marked, this is a typical place that is known only because of the people who attend it and spread the word to others. Is a very quiet place with a nice view over the city and at night this place should be even more special. If you are looking for a place to have a nice conversation or also to enjoy a good beer (you must bring it with you) this is a good place for that purpose. It is located about one minute on foot from the subway stop (Weinsteige).

Wine Trails

Stuttgart has beautiful wine trails in Untertürkheim, Obertürkheim and Rotenberg not to forget the Wine museum at Uhlbach. Very nice to take a walk through the vineyards and stop in wine manufactures for enjoying regional cuisine and wine tastings.

After WW2 the mountain grew up to 40m by deposits of destroyed houses what you can see on the top, from there you have an amazing view over Stuttgart. You can reach the point from Mainstation by taking any S-Bahn to Feuersee, change to Bus 92 direction Heslach Vogelrain get out at Birkenkopf station and take a 15min walk up to the peak.

Bohnenviertel

Do you have the feeling that you are suddenly in the 19th century? No worries, you are still in Stuttgart, in the so-called Bohnenviertel. Go with the flow; enjoy the atmosphere of the neighborhood: artists, cafes, antique stores. All this in the heart of Stuttgart (well hidden). Old stylish buildings with colorful shutters, cold beer and an unforgettable afternoon. All this in this perfect neighborhood.

Schlossplatz

The Schlossplatz is a popular meeting point in epicenter of the city. It is a bustling area consisting of a baroque garden and a music pavilion. In summer, it is filled with visitors and locals alike, sitting on the grass with some beer and company. This quadrant is surrounded by huge selection of nice cafés. In winter, the Schlossplatz gets transformed into the Christmas market with an ice skating rink as well.

Altes Schloss - Stuttgart

The Old Castle (Landesmuseum)

The Old Castle is located in the center of Stuttgart. It dates back to 10th century and has a beautiful Renaissance courtyard and a Protestant Church. It now hosts Württemberg State Museum, where you can learn about the history of the state.

Feuersee

Perhaps the name promises too much because Feuersee (the lake) of fire is more a pond, surrounded by stone and concrete. But it is the pond’s enclosed church and the area around the lake of fire that give greater significance and urban idyll. Here you can get some rest overlooking water, ducks or church, watching other people while chatting or sipping a coffee in the nearby area. At the end of summer, a nice little neighborhood festival is held here.
