  • interesting history from Baden Wuerttemberg, it had been a long time since I visited. Stauffenberg exhibit very good  more »
  • Very interesting Museum with a large cross section of history. The admission price includes audio guide is very moderate with €5.50. Easy to reach, the Museum is also because it is located on the Castle Square.

  • Courtyard is actually the most beautiful part of the Castle. In any case, even the Castle Church is worth visiting.

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.
