    The funicular railway in Stuttgart is not very long, it's fun with this line up but really to drive to the forest cemetery. From there, there are some well marked paths down again in the city.

    this tram goes up to the Waldfriedhof and a lot of hiking trails. If one wants to go back in time this is the way to do it  more »

    It's expensive, for the journey that is has to pay to go up and down and upstairs there's nothing to see. is an access to the cemetery. Valley carriage that is all wood and just for that.

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.
