Subject [OT] Top 10 things to do in Stuttgart
Date Thu, 14 Jul 2005 13:16:46 GMT

for everyone going there, here are a few suggestions, in no particular 
order, and of course highly biased:

1. Visit the "Fernsehturm" (TV-Tower): Touristy, but nice view.

2. Eat suabian food at the "Stuttgarter Stäffele": Slightly expensive but 
good, book ahead.

3. Have a "Mass" (1 Litre of Beer) at the "Biergarten im Schlossgarten": 
This is where the crowd is when the weather's good.

4. Have another "Mass" at the "Karlshöhe": Very nice view over western 
Stuttgart, nice to walk up there.

5. Take a bike through Killesberg Park, Rosenstein Park and Schlossgarten 
back to the city centre. You have to push the bike through Killesberg Park 
(no cycling there), but afterwards its a nice downhill ride to Rosenstein. 
There is also a nice "Biergarten" between Killesberg and Rosenstein Park 
near Pragsattel where you might have yet another "Mass". Takes 1.5 hours.

6. Go to the beach at "Sky beach". Trendy "beach" bar on top of a parking 
garage, volleyball field included (though you have to go down 5 storeys if 
you kick the ball over the side ;).

7. Visit "Städtisches Lapidarium": A bit of old Stuttgart -- garden with 
parts (portals, colums, etc.) of old buildings.

8. Visit Weissenhof-Siedlung: If you like Bauhaus architecture...

9. Visit Wilhelma: Botanical garden & zoo, one of the nicest. You need 
time to do this.

10. Mercedes Benz and Porsche museums: For the car buffs. I think both 
companies are building new ones right now, so call ahead and ask if 
they're open.

Have fun!
