  • It is really impressive how such a collection of pigs can be made, it is not boring. The Division into themed rooms is very resourceful and very nicely prepared. There are some things that we didn't know about the pig. Then visit to the Museum you can eat tasty. Absolutely to recommend. We will come back.

  • One time visit this riot of pigs is quite possible! Well done that have collected and have been able to find in each room so much variety of filing collection. Unfortunately, some things are just repeated and there was a feeling the whole "oil oil", I think that half of the presented would be quite enough and it was not worth going over the top with the number and replays, but once you visit.

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.
