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.

  • The zoo might not be the most beautiful over all, but certain sections are wonderful: the butterfly room is an example. The botanical gardens are included in the normal ticket, and they are great! All the rooms are specially beautiful, with a 1880s wrought iron lattice style mixed with glass. The flower room changes every few months and it is wonderful to be in a room filled with flowers from the floor to the ceiling.
  • Really nice zoo and a botanic garden. Perfect for kids. Bring a stroller for the smallest since there is a good chance to get tired legs on the way down towards the exit.
  • One of the best zoo we ever visited. Gardens are amazing. Great for families as there are many playgrounds.
  • Excellent Zoo with lots of animals and space for kids to play. One of the best Zoos I have ever been. It is also extremely beautiful.
  • Beautiful place beautiful animals but make sure that you check climate condition before you go because animals could be hiding due to cold
