Why Visit Stuttgart, Germany

Set on the banks of the Neckar River, beautiful Stuttgart is the capital of southwest Germany's Baden-Wurttemberg state as well as the real "Germany in miniature".

Stuttgart is a perfect place for those wishing to see it all at once: moderne Industriestadt (working districts), outstanding business centers, half-timbered houses, the fancy architecture of Renaissance and Classicism, and German vineyards - it is difficult to find something "more German" in one place.

Modern Stuttgart is one of the automobile capitals of Germany as the two world-famous car brands, Mercedes and Porsche, are produced here. Moreover, the city is famed for its illustrious ballet troupe, chamber orchestra, and remarkable art collections.

The cultural program during Stuttgart tours starts from the Schlossplatz (Central Square) that houses the 18th-century Baroque New Palace (Neues Schloss), set in front of the Jubilaumssäule column and Konigsbau.

Making your way north from the New Castle, you get to the magnificent palace gardens, established at the beginning of the 19th century and housing Carl-Zeiss-Planetarium and the Württemberg State Theater.

The other popular tourist landmarks of the city to include to your Stuttgart itinerary is the Old Castle (Altes Schloss), dating back to the 10th century and housing the Landesmuseum Württemberg, and the Solitude Palace, Duke Carl Eugen's most ambitious creation.

Coming to Stuttgart you also can't miss the following sights: the Rosenstein Castle, SStifstkirche (Collegiate Church), St.-Nikolaus-Kathedrale (Russian Orthodox church), the Mercedes-Benz Museum, the Hegel House, and the Kunstmuseum Stuttgart (a contemporary art museum).

What is more, Stuttgart is the city where music lives all the time. The Bach International Academy, the Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Philharmonic Society, the Chamber Orchestra, and the Chamber Choir, plus various music festivals are an integral part of Stuttgart's city image.
