Travel Guide: Stuttgart
Posted on 24 April 2018
Our Founder, Michelle's guide to Stuttgart, Germany - what to see, experience, eat and more.
Home to Porsche, Mercedez Benz and Bosch, Stuttgart is surprisingly charming and so stylish considering it's the automotive industry mecca. The capital city of the German state, Baden-Württemberg is located in a valley, dotted with vineyards and colourful Bauhaus architecture.
One of the few Michelin star restaurants in town, Chef Claudio Urru serves up a tasting menu that reads like a story. Be sure to book way in advance.
An institution of Stuttgart's old city, enjoy homemade Swabian specialities such as Maultaschen, Spätzle, Schnitzel or Casseroles and Stews. Not to mention locally made wine.
Grande Cafe Planie
THE grand cafe experience in Stuttgart. The Viennese style cafe offers over 50 different kinds of cakes and confectionaries. The Black Forest cake is a no-brainer.
Bear Castle (Bärenschlössle)
A former pleasure palace in the Rotwildpark, it is now a restaurant for people escaping the snow and cold after a walk in the park. Sip Glühwein with a view of the Bear Creek and snowcapped scenery.
The majestic palace square is an ideal place to take in the sights and is dotted with cafes and beer gardens. It doubles as a concert venue in the summertime. Lenny Kravitz is playing there in August!

Now a world UNESCO heritage site, the housing estate became the standard for modern architecture. There are buildings by Le Corbusier, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Peter Behrens and Jacobus Oud, all in one place, and the museum close by.
