Stuttgart Panorama

Stuttgart City Breaks

Stuttgart is known as the headquarters of Mercedes-Benz and Porsche yet it is much more than just a car city. One of the greenest cities in Europe, it also offers a number of first-rate art collections with the State Gallery being a special highlight for lovers of both art and architecture. If you are looking for some great shopping opportunities, go to Königstraße for well-known fashion chains; the area around the Stiftskirche for exclusive labels; or the Gerberviertel for individual boutiques. The city offers a rich cultural diversity, spectacular architecture, idyllic public parks, elegant shopping plazas and majestic palaces. For car enthusiasts, however, both automobile museums are not to be missed.
