Your key to the city. Recommendations guaranteed by a true “Stuttgarter” who knows the city by heart.
Tipp # 01 – Chic
From Fluxus to luxury
In the Calwer Passage you will find the FLUXUS - a Temporary Concept Mall. A total of 16 pop-up shopping areas invite you to experience another way of shopping. Quite different is the lower end of the Calwer Street. There you turn into the Champs Elysee of Stuttgart: The Stiftstraße. Big brands lined up like pearls on a chain.
Tipp # 02 – Cultured
Birthplace of the automobile: Gottlieb Daimler memorial
Everything began in this garden house. Here, Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach worked on the so-called grandfather clock, the role-model for many later engine builders. In 1885, they built this engine into a coach: the first car was born. The former garden house is now in its original state, so the atmosphere from the past time can be felt here.

Stuttgart's most beautiful slant
... is a cableway. In colloquial speech also baptized as Witwentröster-Express. The historical teakwood-carriages go up from the Südheimer Platz to the Waldfriedhof - a forest cemetery. Here are resting, among others, Theodor Heuss, Oskar Schlemmer and Robert Bosch. After this experience, you should not miss a visit to the TV tower. On the first television tower in the world, you will experience unexpected views.

For car enthusiasts: The Porsche Museum
The Porsche Museum is not just an architectural highlight in Stuttgart. On the 5.600m² exhibition area you will witness the production history of Porsche and can find unique racing cars. You can also get tickets directly from me - so you can avoid the queue at the museum's counter.
Tip # 02 - Cultured
Garden of the beautiful melody
The Chinese Garden of Stuttgart reflects the world on a small scale: stone layers represent mountains, ponds and lakes correspond to the seas and garden plants the natural vegetation. A closed garden world, which offers a wonderful view of Stuttgart's Talkessel and the surrounding heights.
Tip # 03 - Discovery
Le Petit Coq
The tiny cocktail bar on Hauptstädter Street is a place where the charm of the 1930s unfolds. The stylish décor with a hodgepodge of jars, carafes and ingredients makes the guests curious about the art of the well-groomed cocktail. Barchef Jonas Hald and Managing Director Ferro F Ceylan prove their exquisite taste, both in the selection of the spirits and the variety of the self-made cocktails. But be careful: The place is limited - better arrive earlier or stay longer.
