  • Parks, beautiful architecture and very well preserved, like everything else in Germany, and several department stores, and good restaurants ... but and of course not to be missed and a picnic on the grass.

  • Its a really beautiful place specially in summer cause many people goes there to chill. In winter is also really beautiful cause of their amazing christmass market. Its the heart of the city! 
  • Because our daughter in Stuttgart, I take time to drive from time to time in the city. Because each season has its charms on the Castle Square. In summer the beautiful Caffees with outdoor seating, where great cake & ice cream are served. I very like the flea markets, farmer's markets or events in the Castle Square. The special highlight for me, but is in close proximity to the Castle Square. This is the market Hall, this is simply a piece of holiday for me! As if you were in the South, this drive and this smells incredibly good!
