Interesting sightseeing in Stuttgart city center
Stuttgart is a young city, but this metropolis on the River Neckar does have a number of historic sights and a wealth of cultural attractions.
The heart of Stuttgart, capital of the state of Baden-Württemberg, beats at the Schlossplatz square with the impressive late-neo-classical Königsbau building. There are excellent shopping opportunities in the adjoining Königsbau arcades. Close by looms the Stiftskirche, a veritable symbol of the city: The 15th-century church is the location for popular concerts, including the 'Internationaler Orgelsommer' in July/August. On Königstraße, Stuttgart’s main commercial street, the Kunstmuseum houses important works of painting and culture. The museum is particularly famous for its comprehensive collection of works by the painter Otto Dix. The Stuttgart State Opera House can be found in the upper part of the Schlossgarten park. There you can enjoy unique performances by the renowned orchestra and one of the oldest opera companies in Germany. You can reach all attractions quickly on foot from the Hotel Steigenberger Graf Zeppelin, which stands opposite the main station.
