  • An eye-catcher, represents an anchor point in the city for me. But the best is the exterior. Is also from the inside to admire the impressive architecture, but there prevails (Reformation) simplicity. This is disappointing, especially since the Church renovated after the war was also little brave (or a conscious decision). I want to interpret it positively, and so you can if you like architecture, religion, and the interpretation of deal.

  • 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.
