Stuttgart in two days
Two days in Stuttgart - that means you can take your time. The programme for Stuttgart in One Day can easily be extended for two, so you could take in both of the automobile museums. But of course Stuttgart has a wealth of other museums, too. Whether you prefer ethnology or natural history, art or history: click your way through the Museums and Galleries of the Stuttgart Region and you're sure to find something to suit!
Before you set off on your voyage of discovery, it's worth dropping in at "Hüftengold", a café that really lives up to its name with food that goes straight to the hips! But they also have a pretty impressive breakfast menu. Fortify yourself with freshly-baked pretzels, Bircher muesli, locally roasted coffee and much more besides - while relaxing on colourful cushions beside an open fire.
Stuttgart's Markthalle (Market Hall) takes you on a condensed trip around the world: exotic spices, fresh baking and aromatic specialities from far-off lands in a historical Art Nouveau building. And on the upper floor you'll find exclusive home accessories and a delightful range of gifts!
How about a visit to the award-winning Stuttgart Opera in the evenings, where the world-famous Stuttgart Ballet also gives its enthralling performances? (reservations needed).
An alternative evening programme: in Theodor-Heuss-Straße there's one bar after another, and there's no shortage of lively bars and cafés all around the Hans im Glück ("Lucky Hans") fountain, especially during summer weekends. You get a good view over Palace Square from the "Waranga", from where you can watch the 'in' crowd over an Aperol spritz "seeing and being seen". Or indulge yourself with fine cuisine in one of the many restaurants - Swabian, international or exotic. Here you'll find restaurants, cafés and nightlife tips in the Stuttgart Region.
If you plan to spend two or three days in Stuttgart, it's worth getting our Discovery Ticket: the StuttCard offers free entry and attractive reductions on a host of visitor magnets, such as the State Gallery or the Mercedes-Benz Museum.
