Stuttgart is a city that definitely worth seeing while visiting Germany! The largest city in the state of Baden-Württemberg has many beautiful sights. I made a list of my favourite places in Stuttgart!
Stuttgart has hilly landschaft. The city centre of Stuttgart is located in a hollow that surrounded by the hills. This is why number one on my list is a viewpoint. Weissenburg Park has a marvellous view over Stuttgart’s city centre, seating areas that are ideal for picnics and Teahouse that is usually open on a good day. One of the advantages, this place is free and reachable by public transport.
Address: Weissenburgpark mit Teehaus, 70184 Stuttgart
In 2006 was build one of the bravest and innovative, in my opinion, buildings in Stuttgart. The design is based on a unique cloverleaf concept using three overlapping circles. Mercedes-Benz Museum worth seeing not only from the outside but from the inside as well. In the museum you can find a limousine of Japanese Emperor Hirohito, the very first Mercedes car – Mercedes Simplex 40 PS and brand new sports cars.
