Industrious but green, urban yet residential, local and international – welcome to Stuttgart
Living in Stuttgart
Stuttgart, the state capitol of Baden-Württemberg, was founded as a stud farm over 1000 years ago. It later became the residence of dukes and kings. You can still visit the grand architectural structures these rulers commissioned, such as the city castles, Wilhelma, and the opera house.
Stuttgart is made up of 23 uniquely different districts, spread over steep hills and cozy valleys. Each district has its own flair and people tend to be very proud of theirs, especially when they offer exceptional views over the city or are home to popular local beer breweries.
- Anja's tip: "Bad-Cannstatt's Kulturinsel hosts great events with exciting, hip artists and performers."
Public transportation makes living in and around the city easy (U- and S-Bahn, buses, car-sharing). High speed trains can get you to Paris in just 3 hours and 11 minutes. You can fly to over 100 destinations from the airport, and the state's major arterial highways all converge around Stuttgart.
- Tobi's tip: "Take the U-Bahn (subway) in the city. It's very reliable and leaves every 10 mins."
There are too many to list, but here are a few of our personal faves.
- Eugen: "I would suggest visiting the Rosenstein Natural History Museum, housed in a castle atop a hill in Stuttgart's beautiful city park."
- Daria: "If you are looking for some giggles, catch the improv-theatre show called 'Heilix-Spässle'."
- Tobi: "The Daimler and Porsche Museums are great, but the Fernsehturm is also worth a visit."
Stuttgart city center is the best address if you're looking for a night out on the town with lots of fun bars, a vibrant club scene, and a wide variety of restaurants. Local wine, on the other hand, tastes best when eaten with traditional Swabian food at a Weinstube in Stuttgart-Süd. But some may prefer beer.
- Davin's tip: "While good beer is tasty no matter where you are, it is best enjoyed while sitting in a Biergarten on a sunny day."
There is never a shortage of events taking place in Stuttgart. The JazzOpen and Weihnachtsmarkt are very popular, drawing locals and international visitors in droves. But no matter what your interests are, from small club jazz concerts to large fantasy conventions, you will find something suitable in Stuttgart.
- Victoria's tip: "Skip Oktoberfest in Munich and visit Germany's 2nd largest beer festival: the Stuttgarter Volksfest. It's just as good and not as packed."
Bathing is a long-standing tradition in Stuttgart. Three of Stuttgart's public spas are fed by underground mineral wells – a perfect way to relax. If you prefer a stroll through the park, try the 600 year old Schlossgarten (castle park), or explore the broader Stuttgart region with its many forests and lakes.
- Laura's tip: "Visit the 'Blühendes Barock' in Ludwigsburg – one of the most gorgeous gardens in Stuttgart region".
Though it's one of Germany's most developed regions, Stuttgart actually contains many city forests, and is further surrounded by beautiful natural habitats. And if you're willing to travel outside the city a bit, you'll find lots of hiking and cycling opportunities in the nearby Swabian Alps or the famed Black Forest National Park.
- Matthias's tip: "Go hiking in the Swabian Alps on the weekend for some spectacular views."
If you prefer watching others play sports instead of exercising yourself, you're in luck. Stuttgart is home to 2 professional soccer teams (VfB and Kickers) and one professional volleyball team. What's more, the city offers a multitude of gyms, rock-climbing facilities, diving centers, and hiking and biking trails.
- Christoffer's tip: "The cycling is excellent in the Schönbuch forest."
