Though Stuttgart may not be one of Germany’s most famous cities, it is in fact the country’s very own motor city, as it is home to both Mercedes-Benz and Porsche. Both manufacturers have museums here, where a selection of impressive cars from different eras are on display, including the first ever one to be made.

Stuttgart was badly damaged during Second World War bombings, however many buildings have since been restored. The Schlossplatz (Palace Square) contains the baroque New Palace, as well as the medieval Old Palace, home to the State Government and State Museum respectively. The stock exchange is also located here, and features a 135 metre colonnade, as well as many cafes and shops on the ground floor.

For views over the city, head to the top of the Fernsehturm, or television tower, which at a height of 217 metres is the highest spot in Stuttgart. The tower was the first of its kind to be built in Germany, in 1954 – 1956. Art lovers might be interested in one of the best Picasso collections in Europe, housed in the Stuttgarter Staatsgalerie (State Gallery) on Konrad Adenauer Strasse.

If you’re after relaxation, the Spa Baths at Bad Cannstatt come highly recommended. Located on Sulzerrainstrasse, you’ll be able to bask in the various health and beauty treatments they have on offer.
