  • This is a beautiful square. Perfect for a picnic during the day and a lovely place at night for drinks at the local restaurants. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here, definitely visit!  more »
  • This (very) large square is the unique focus of the "Center" of Stuttgart with a small copy of Versailles and plastic statues/fountains.

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.
