Where to stay in Stuttgart

Stuttgart's city center offers a number of lodging options near major sites, but consider areas just outside the center for better deals. For example, Stuttgart-West is within walking distance from the center and boasts its fair share of cafes, restaurants, markets, and theaters. Two more areas, Stuttgart-Ost and Stuttgart-Süd, are also centrally located and full of local character.

  • A great museum for international tourists interested in the history of the region is this state museum. It covers the period from Neanderthal man all the way up until the middle of the 20th century. While it doesn’t go into the detail of modern Stuttgart, it sets up the story very well through the Roman era, the Middle Ages, and the kingdom that followed. The exhibits are in German and English and there’s a lot of interesting detail to learn along the way. This could be a good place to start your exploration of the region – particularly if you’re planning to see some of the old royal buildings.
  • An amazing journey through Baden Württemberg's history, in a well set and extremely organized inventory, with an outstanding display system. Just 2 minutes away from the subway station, this is a must visit site to anyone who wishes to know about not only the cultural aspect of the region, but also historical, industrial and many more. Great place to visit.
  • Amazing artefacts from prehistoric times up to recent history! A true eye opener!
  • Fantastic. Save a whole day to look round. Excellent range of exhibits, beautifully presented.
  • On our first visit to Stuttgart in May 2010, Pat and I decided instead to visit the Old Palace which was originally a castle with a moat, built in the 13th century and once home to the Dukes of Wurttemberg. It presently houses the Wurttemberg State Museum, whose exhibits include treasures and burial objects from the grave of the Celtic prince, Hochdorf. Hochdorf is also the name of a little town on the outskirts of Stuttgart, where the prince was laid to rest in the 5th century AD under a large burial mound.
