Culinary with Tradition in Stuttgart

And with vineyards stretching right into the city, wine plays a major role in Stuttgart. In and around Stuttgart, there are beautiful and panoramic wine trails. The trails around the Burial Chapel are a particular highlight. A stop at the Museum of Viniculture in Uhlbach is also highly recommended, where you can learn about the development of viticulture in the region and taste exquisite wines made by winegrowers in the Stuttgart region.
Scenic Day, Enjoyable Night
Thanks to the topographical situation, the Stäffele Stairs are used to climb the heights of Stuttgart. The small Stäffele (there are between 400 and 600 in Stuttgart) are old remnants from the time when the heights were used for wine growing. Once you have reached the heights of Stuttgart, you can see all corners of the city. Popular vantage points such as Eugensplatz Square and Karlshöhe Viewpoint invite you to linger and enjoy. When night falls, there is something for everyone. In the Leonhardsviertel Quarter and around the Hans-im-Glück Fountain, there is a perfect location for everyone.
In Stuttgart, everything comes together - the perfect city for car lovers, culture lovers, pleasure seekers, night owls... This is our Stuttgart.
