"STUTTGART Steps" Tour (STÄFFELE Tour East) – Up and down thousands of steps
Owing to Stuttgart's geographic location in a valley basin, it has more flights of steps – known to the locals as "Stäffele" – than most other towns.
Idyllic paths and beautiful scenic lookouts guarantee so much variety on this original circular walk with no shortage of steps that you won't get bored, even after the 100th flight...
East Steps Tour: Beginning with a walk through the Palace Gardens, the tour then takes you up flights of steps to the "Fair Galathea" statue and the "Kanonenhäusle" (Cannon House). You'll hear all about the people the steps you are climbing are named after. On the way down you'll see the Wilhelmspalais, (King Wilhelm's Palace) the magnificent city residence of the last king of Württemberg.
Please note: comfortable shoes and physical fitness are a must for this tour. Wheelchair users and parents with children in prams are requested to choose one of our other interesting outings instead.
