Stuttgart Vacations

Car aficionados kick into overdrive upon visiting the Mercedes-Benz and Porsche headquarters and adjacent museums. Although it’s best to schedule a visit to the local wineries (where Riesling is produced) for after any test drives. The capital of the Baden-Wurttemburg region in southern Germany, Stuttgart began life as a horse breeding meadow in AD ... Read more
950 (its name literally means mare-garden), was the home of the Wurttemburg Royal Family in the 14th century, then bombed beyond recognition in World War II, only to rebuild itself into the park-filled, stylish city on the border of the Black Forest that it is today.

We will be travelling to Stuttgart next year. We use to live near by the Pattonville Army Base in the Early 80s. 83-85 86ish. I was 3 and 4 and my brother got the opportunity to go to Elementary School there. I had really great memories there!

Stuttgart, Germany is a cute little town to hang out for a couple of days. It's not a touristy destination, but I was really comfortable traveling around Stuttgart. Maybe because its high-end public transportation system, the city square, pedestrian mall street, or maybe its history; I'm glad I saw a bit of Stuttgart. Also if you are keen at automobile history, Stuttgart is the most important place to go, since this is where everything started.

An industrial city in the southwest portion of Germany that I called home for a little over half a year. Having been basically gutted during the Allied bombings of World War II, the city has been completely transformed from what it was. That's not a bad thing as it still retains a cultural and social hub along Kongistrasse. It's a relaxed city without many attractions, but a great place to hang out with friends.


I have lived in this city and I really adore it!!
I longe to live there again!!

This is high tech city. Public Transportation is very nice. They are on time. You can go anywhere in this city within 1 hour.


It is really nice to visit Stuttgart around the shopping centre where you will see and also meet people going and coming with sometimes passing difficulties. You can also enjoy the Sunday car market if you want to buy some.

I've traveled all around Europe and had pretty low expectations of this city, but I was pleasantly surprised. It was clean, easy to get around and had some great hangouts. Not really a hotbed of cultural artifacts, but there was enough to occupy me for a couple days.


One of my favorite cities, maybe just because my dad lived some years near it.
