Stuttgart is located in the south of Germany, very close to Munich and Frankfurt, two of its major cities. It is considered the gateway to the Black Forest and has countless tourist attractions to visit. Here are a few recommendations of places to visit:


Schlossplatz Schlossplatz, or Castle Square, is a former 19th century horse training and cavalry parade ground which is now a square where you can take a break from the city and at the same time be surrounded by colourful flower gardens. Right in the centre of the square is a column from 1842-1846, a sculpture to celebrate the 25th birthday of Wilhelm I, the Jubiläumssäule.

Königstrasse Stuggart has a pedestrian street full of shops, cafés, restaurants, all kinds of businesses in the middle of the historical centre. Königstrasse is the longest shopping street with world famous brands and small local shops where you can buy typical products of the region in Stuttgart.

Bohnenviertel Bohnenviertel or Bean Quarter was named that way because it used to be an area outside the city walls where beans were grown. In the 14th century, this quarter was home to bean growers, craftsmen and wine merchants. With the passing of time it has become a very attractive area: the streets are now lined with antique and craft shops, art galleries, restaurants, etc.

Fernsehturm You can look down on the city of Stuttgart from the top of the Fernsehturm, or better known as the TV tower. This tower was erected between 1954 and 1956 at the top of the Hoher Bopser hill and is 217 metres high, giving you a wonderful panoramic view of Stuttgart and its surroundings, including the Alps.

Atles Schloss This is a renovated 14th century castle that was built in the middle of the 10th century and is now a museum: the Landesmuseum Wutemberg. As soon as you enter, you will pass through the stables of the castle into an arcaded courtyard with Renaissance elements, where the experience of visiting this beautiful museum where you can appreciate the art, culture and history of the city begins.

Mineral water pools Stuttgart is the second city in Europe with the most mineral water pools. Near the city centre you can enjoy nine indoor and outdoor pools ranging from 20 to 34 degrees Celsius with solarium, saunas and restaurants. The water in the pools comes from two medicinal springs whose properties are beneficial to your health.


The city's public transport service is divided into three parts: S-Bahn, U-Bahn and buses. - S-Bahn: are train lines that have longer distances and reach areas further away from the centre, so the frequency of trains is lower than the U-Bahn. - U-Bahn: are internal lines much closer to the centre with more train frequency and therefore less waiting time between trains. - Buses: connect to places that the U-Bahn does not reach, they are often used to go to specific locations or for residents living in outlying districts. Stuttgart is divided into zones: from Zone 1 (city centre) to Zone 8 (suburbs).


There are currently 7 S-Bahn lines: S1 to S6 and S60. It is a modern, comfortable and punctual train that has a long route, reaching the furthest places from the city centre. You can get tickets from the ticket machines at all S-Bahn stations. The S-Bahn and U-Bahn share the same ticket price. Depending on the route you take, the price will be one or the other. The timetables do vary, with the S-Bahn opening from 4.30am.


The U-Bahn is more similar to what we know as a tram, as most of the route is in external paths. There are 15 U-Bahn lines and they are very easy to recognise because they are indicated by a sign with the letter "U": - U1 to U9 - U11 to U13 - U19

At each U-Bahn station you will find a machine where you can buy your ticket. It is important to know that in Stuttgart there is no entrance fee, the stations are open access and there is no controller on each train, but there are surprise inspections and you can be fined. The machines are only in German, English and French but they are quite easy and intuitive to use. Tickets can be paid for with cash or card.

The U-Bahn runs from approximately 4:30am to 1:00am from Monday to Sunday. However, it is advisable to check the timetables beforehand on the app or on the website:


Ticket prices may vary depending on the VVS policy, but above all they will vary depending on the zone or type of ticket selected. Below is the latest update of the ticket prices: -Einzelticket: 1 zone -> adults: 2,50€; adults with online purchase: 2,37€; child/pet: 1,30€; child/pets with online purchase: 1,22€. -Kurzstreckenticket: €1,40 for 3 U-bahn stations -4th ticket: 1 zone -> adults: 9,50€; children/pet: 4,90€. -Einzeltagesticket (individual day ticket): 1 zone -> 5,20€. -Gruppentagesticke (group day ticket): 1 zone -> 10,40€.


There are currently 45 daytime lines and buses run from 4:00 a.m to 1:00 a.m. You can buy different tickets on the bus: zone tickets or day tickets. -Zone tickets: "Eine Zone" is a single one-way ticket. You will have to buy a return ticket. -Per day: Ein Tag and you have to specify that it is zone 1,2,3... With this ticket you will be able to use all the transports included in the zone you have bought without having to buy others.

The price of these tickets is the same as the price of the U-bahn: -Einzelticket: 1 zone -> adults: 2,50€; adults with online purchase: 2,37€; child/pet: 1,30€ ; child/pets with online purchase: 1,22€. -Kurzstreckenticket: €1,40 for 3 U-bahn stations 4th ticket: 1 zone -> adults: 9,50€; children/pet: 4,90€. -Einzeltagesticket (individual day ticket): 1 zone -> 5,20€. -Gruppentagesticke (group day ticket): 1 zone -> 10,40€.

There are some night buses as the U-Bahn and S-Bahn do not run at certain times. These buses leave from Schlossplatz, next to the Old Castle, and stop at the different stations provided for each bus. To distinguish the night buses from the day buses, they will have an N on the front of the bus. It is very important to note that the night buses only operate on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays.


Einzelticket (single ticket): valid for 3 hours from the time of purchase and always in the direction of the destination. There is a ticket for children and large dogs, and the option to buy a ticket for first class or for the transport of bicycles. Kurzstreckenticket (short-distance ticket: valid for immediate travel. On the U-Bahn and buses up to 3 stops and on the S-Bahn only 1 stop (to the next station). No change of transport or breaks in the journey are permitted. 4er-Ticket (multi-journey ticket): allows 4 journeys from the start of the first journey. It lasts 3 hours from the time it is validated. It can be used on different days. The conditions are the same as for the Einzelticket. Tagesticket (daily ticket): valid for all journeys made in one day, including night buses. It can be used from 7 a.m. until the same time the next day. Wochen-/Monatsticket (weekly or monthly ticket): you can only get it if you have a transport card. Zuschlag-/Zusatwertmarke (first class/additional fare): these are for first class supplements on S-Bahn and local trains for a specific period. Kombiticket (combined ticket): valid for art, culture, sports or trade fairs. Angebote (special offers): these are offers for BW-Tarif GmbH and VVS employees.

To validate your ticket, you will find a small machine inside the U-Bahn and bus carriages and/or at the S-Bahn entrances every time you travel. Once you have inserted your ticket into the machine, it will be stamped with the date and time you have used it. If the ticket is not stamped, you can be fined.


The price of a taxi in Stuttgart depends on several factors: the route to be taken, the duration of the journey and the taxi driver's fare: -Starting fare: 3,50€. -Kilometre 1- 4: 2,50€. -Each additional kilometre: 2,00€. -Waiting time per hour: 33,00€. Daytime and nighttime rates are the same.


Since the floods in the city, parking spaces have become more limited, and the more central the area, the less parking you will find due to greener areas and reduced private transport. The most popular car parks in the city are the Direkte Kontakbolzen at C&A in Breite Strasse and the Galeria Kaufhof. There are cheaper options such as the Volksbank car park on Huberstraße or Schlossstraße. Parking on the street is usually difficult as there are not many spaces available, so if you want to park on the street you have to be prepared to drive around a few times. Besides the effort, the price is not much cheaper than parking in a car park, you pay approximately 2€ per hour. If you want to compare prices and evaluate which option best suits your needs, visit and you will see which car parks are closest to the area you want to visit and you can also calculate the price of the service.
