Stuttgart is Europe’s most important region for high-tech manufacturing, and home to two iconic automotive brands: Mercedes-Benz and Porsche.
Both companies have museums where visitors can get up close to historic models and learn about the future direction of the industry. Take time to enjoy the striking architecture of these landmark buildings.
Stuttgart hosts Europe’s biggest spring festival, which attracts around 1.5 million visitors to its stalls, fairground rides and beer tents. Unlike many German cities, Stuttgart is a wine city. The valley of the River Neckar is lined with beautiful vineyards. There is even one in the center of town.
