The German city of Stuttgart in Baden-Wuerttemberg is known for its Porsche and Mercedez Benz car factories. But it is also interesting for tourists thanks to several interesting places and monuments.There are the 9 best.
1. Altes Schloss
Altes Schloss in translation The new castle was built as a residence for the king. Today it is one of the most beautiful sights in Stuttgart and can be found right in the city center.
2. Porsche Museum
The Porsche Museum is based in Stuttgart, so you will find a museum of this luxury brand next to the factory. Certainly I also recommend visiting this museum to people for whom cars are not in the center of interest. The museum is really amazing and you will learn a lot of interesting facts about the brand, which is absolutely associated with this city.
3. Stuttgart City Library
Not everyone is excited about the idea of visiting the library. Of course. But the one in Stuttgart will really interest everyone. Their city library is very modern and one of the tourist attractions of this city. Best of all, admission is free not only for students but also for tourists.
4. Mercedez Benz Museum
You can also find the Mercedez Benz Museum here in Stuttgart. It is a truly amazing museum that will also interest everyone. You will find the very first cars of the world and gradually you will get to newer and newer models of cars during the tour. There you could see a real car of Nicolas Cage, Princess Diana, a papamobile or even a car from the Jurassic Park movie.
Also Stuttgart has its own television tower. It is up to 206 meters high, but what is really exceptional is its history. This is the very first TV tower built for this style. Television towers with such a portrait later began to build in other cities such as. the most famous in Berlin. But the idea will always come from Stuttgart.
6. Museum of Art
In the very center of Stuttgart is the famous Museum of Art (Kunstmuseum). This glazed building attracts you from the outside and inside you will find works by famous painters such as Fritz Winter, Dieter Roth but even me Otto Dix.
7. Killesbergturm, Stuttgart
Killesberturm is a lookout tower that gives you a beautiful view of the whole of Stuttgart. It was built by a volunteer group that believed visitors so much that there was no one at the tower to collect money for entry, but instead you find a cash register where you should throw 1 euro for adult and 0.5 euro for a child. Of course, the vast majority do not solve any cash, but given the money supports further construction of such amazing structures, so please do not hesitate to pay in this case and enjoy the magnificent view.
Another place to visit is the Königstraße shopping street. It is one of the most frequented shopping streets in Germany and is up to 1.2 km long.
9. Pig Museum, Stuttgart
The last attraction of this city is a truly unusual museum. It is the largest pig museum in the world! You will find a huge number of small but also large statuettes of pigs and there is also a tasty kitchen.
