Our flagship city tour is an entertaining and informative 90 minute walk through the historic heart of Stuttgart. This trip back in time covers over 1,000 years of Stuttgart history and legends!
- The old castle and "new" palace and square
- A brief glimpse into Stuttgart's Roman past
- The historic Bean Quarter, and a peek at the shadier side of Stuttgart
- The Markthalle - a foodie paradise!
- Evocative Schillerplatz and Stiftskirche
- The ancient gathering place "Marktplatz" and town hall (Rathaus)
- Cultural landmarks such as the Opera House situated in the verdant Schlossgarten.
- and much more!
As we walk, I'll point out great restaurants and pubs where you can eat like a local, where to buy unique souvenirs and regional specialties, and share with you information about current festivals and exhibitions so you can experience Germany like a native.
In nice weather, the tour can end with an optional trip to Stuttgart's beautiful traditional biergarten!
