Sixt Tips

The city dates back to the 10th century but today is best known for its automotive industry and for being the headquarters of both Mercedes-Benz and Porsche. Start your visit to the city and get your bearings by driving around and looking out for landmarks such as the Schloss Solitude. This domed palace sits high above the city and was constructed in 1763 for Duke Karl Eugen of Württemberg as his summer palace. With its gilded and frescoed interior, it is well worth stopping off here for a visit. Spend some time browsing the shops on Königstrasse before exploring the steep streets of the city. Stuttgart also has plenty of green spaces, perfect for a break from city sightseeing or a picnic. One is the huge Schlossgarten which is dotted with sculptures as well as being home to the Staatstheater and a beer garden.

Sightseeing Destinations

No visit to Stuttgart is complete without some time spent at the Mercedes-Benz factory and museum at Sindelfingen. The museum is housed in a spectacular curved metal building while the exhibits take you right back to the birth of motor transport. Hohenzollern Castle is one of the most famous and beautiful in Germany. Built in the 11th century, it sits on the Berg Hohenzollern and towers over the towns of Bisingen and Hechingen. We recommend arriving early to avoid the crowds. The Seewald Leisure Park is the perfect day in the countryside for the whole family. Full of walking trails and adventurous activities, it is also home to southern Germany's longest toboggan ride. Art lovers can pop into the Staatsgalerie Stuttgart. Its curvy and colorful design is by the British architect James Stirling. It houses European art from artists like Picasso, Klee, and Matisse.
