Stuttgart is a wonderful year-round destination to visit. Many consider May to September to be their favourite time to explore the city as temperatures are very pleasant at this time of year and the skies tend to remain clear. Temperatures can soar in June and July so this could be the European hotspot that you never knew about it! The winters get cold here but if you wrap up, you can still do a lot of exploring of the city including their famous Christmas markets. All in all, it is more or less always a good time to visit Stuttgart.
One of the best places to relax and soak up the atmosphere in the city is Schlossplatz (palace square). It was initially created as parade grounds for the palace and now contains a public green area with lawns, twin fountains and gorgeous flower beds. Altes Schloss (Old Castle) is another great site to put on your to-do list. It was built as a fully-functional castle at the turn of the 10th century and now houses a museum. One of the most unique sights in Stuttgart is the prominent Fernsehturm Stuttgart. It was the world’s first TV tower constructed from reinforced concrete and is the prototype for all modern TV towers. It completely dominates the skyline and is best pictured at night time!
Stuttgart provides a range of excellent accommodation options to choose from, with everything from budget-friendly choices to luxury hotels if you want to splurge on your European city break. There are also plenty of mid-range hotels if you prefer something in between. In terms of dining out, there are restaurants all over Stuttgart providing a mixture of local and international cuisine. We recommend the traditional Swabian cuisine with onion-topped roast pork which is delicious!
