Stuttgart and my euro trip


My first stop during my journey though central Europe. It was my best choice between Paris and Prague. I was lucky to met on good german friend who actualy does’t leave there.

Information on Stuttgart

« Stuttgart was founded in the 10th century; its name is a modern version of the original Stutengarten. It is the capital of the state of Baden-Württemberg in southern Germany. The sixth-largest city in Germany. In 1920 Stuttgart became the seat of the German National Government (after the administration fled from Berlin.
During World War II, the centre of Stuttgart was almost completely destroyed in Allied air raids. Some of the most severe bombing took place in 1944 carried out by Anglo-American bombers.At the centre of Stuttgart lies its main square, Schlossplatz. As well as being the largest square in Stuttgart, it stands at the crossover point between the city’s shopping area, Schlossgarten park which runs down to the river Neckar, Stuttgart’s two central castles and major museums and residential areas to the south west. Königstraße, Stuttgart’s most important shopping street which runs along the northwestern edge of Schlossplatz, claims to be the longest pedestrianised street in Germany. »

The trip

I came in stuttgart in the middle of the day after leaving my hometown (near Paris) in the morning. The seven hours trip lead me to the german city where I had to find my friend’s place. It was not easy because of many road renovations and not really helping by my GPS. After meeting her we move first to my hostel for taking keys and park the car. According to the host, we decided to take the railway/subway to go to the Old Town of Stuttgart.

Once there we start to walk without any route, just trying to see the most we can and enjoy the city and its graceful weather. For this summer day we attended to a Wine Festival, I was a bit surprise, since I am a child I see Germany as the Beer-land. But anyway, why not? The Old Town is not really big, or maybe we miss a lot of place, but the main square where the New Castle is, is really beautiful. People lying on the grass for sun bath everywhere 🙂

I think if I have to pass near Stuttgart in the futur I will obviously stop to see more because I know that I don’t know this city well.

The only bad point was for me that everything was close in saturday evening and sunday. No german flag to put in my collection.
