  • Stiftskirche, is the main Evangelic Lutheran Church of Stuttgart, and is located in the Centre of the city, at Stiftstraße, very close of Schillerplatz and the Town Hall, Marktplatz. This church was destroyed during bombing in the second world war. It was restored in 1950, and the last renovation has taken place since the year 1999 to the year 2003. It is a very beautiful church, which is worth a visit.
