The buzzing federal state capital
Culture in all its best aspects, futuristic masterpieces and plenty of scope for enjoyment and fun – the federal state capital of Baden-Württemberg is an excursion well worth making: Stuttgart’s Schlossplatz is a hive of activity. It is surrounded by many attractions, magnificent buildings and Europe’s longest shopping street. Culture is one the main hallmarks of the city’s international identity: museums, galleries and an appealing music and festival scene characterise the city’s nature. The traditional Stuttgart Festival is the perfect place to celebrate and unwind. Wine lovers look forward to the Stuttgart Wine Festival (Weindorf). A sociable beer-drinking atmosphere flourishes at the Cannstatter Volksfest in late September and to see out the year, the Christmas market spreads some magical advent cheer.
