Stuttgart Vacations

A leisurely stroll through the elegant, tree-lined Castle Square in Germany’s southwest city of Stuttgart makes one realize this city is one of the most verdant in all of Europe. Perhaps this is due to its proximity to the Black Forest, which lies about an hour away, and certainly worth a trip. Whatever the reason for the city’s lovely greenery, vacationers should take advantage of Stuttgart’s great outdoors, much of which can be explored on foot.

Overview

Begin in the heart of the city at Palace Square. Once serving as the backdrop for military drills, the square now hosts entertaining open-air concerts and summer festivals. The former seat of counts and dukes, Württemberg State Museum offers a stunning display of more than 1,000 pieces of art and sculptures from the Stone Age to the present, including the opulent crown jewels. Vacationers can continue their cultural odyssey with a performance of the renowned Stuttgart Opera or more modern Stuttgart Ballet.

Automotive buffs will love the city’s iconic Mercedes Benz Museum and Porsche Museum. Those looking for something a bit more idyllic should visit one of the country’s fairytale castles, such as Hohenzollern, high atop a distant hill.
