Stuttgart is a young city, yet the Neckar metropolis has numerous historical sights and a wealth of cultural attractions.
The heart of Stuttgart, the capital of Baden-Württemberg, beats at the Schlossplatz with the impressive late classicist Königsbau. The adjoining Königsbau Passagen are a great place for shopping. Nearby is the Stiftskirche, a landmark of Stuttgart. The 15th-century church is the venue for popular concerts, including the International Organ Summer in July/August. On Königstrasse, Stuttgart's central shopping street, the Museum of Art presents important paintings and sculptures. It is famous for its extensive collection of works by the painter Otto Dix. The Stuttgart State Opera is located in the Upper Palace Garden. Enjoy the unique performances of the renowned orchestra and one of the oldest opera choirs in Germany. All attractions are within quick walking distance from the Hotel Steigenberger Graf Zeppelin across from the main train station.
Automobile fans should not miss a visit to the Porsche or Mercedes Benz Museum. These can be reached within a few minutes via public transportation.
The airport as well as the Stuttgart trade fair are 15 km away and can be reached comfortably via the direct S-Bahn connection via the main station.
