The capital of the popular county of Baden-Württemberg, Stuttgart is the largest city in southwest Germany. Long regarded as the manufacturing hub of Mercedes-Benz and Porsche, Stuttgart’s culture has made a name for itself through its renowned State Opera and ballet performances, and the exceptional art collections at the State Gallery and the Gallery of Stuttgart.
Stuttgart is also one of the greenest cities in Germany dotted with numerous vineyards that stretch all the way to the city centre. Make sure to visit Schlossplatz boasting the three-winged baroque-neoclassical royal residence of Neus Scholls, which now houses state government ministers. Nearby you can find many medieval castles, magnificent royal residences and long-forgotten ruins as well as no fewer than 19 mineral springs that spout over 22 million litres of mineral water every day.
