Stuttgart Holidays Overview
Located in southwest Germany, and capital of Baden-Wurttemburg, Stuttgart is a prosperous and stylish city. It has plenty of parks and green areas such as the central Schlossgarten, and is surrounded by vineyards. The centre is very hilly and many of the streets end with stairs. The museums, shopping centres, restaurants, and clubs are superb, if a little pricey at times.
Stuttgart was the royal seat of the Wuttemburg family in the fourteenth century, and at the time the city was a booming centre for trade. It was badly damaged during the Second World War, but many of the city’s key buildings have been restored. Today Stuttgart is best known as the home of Porsche and Mercedes-Benz, and the motor trade has certainly contributed to the wealth of the city.
