Stuttgart is the capital of the state of Baden-Wurttemberg in southern Germany. It is Germanys sixth largest city. But is it worth a stop over before you hit those slopes?
What's in Stuttgart?
For those of you who love cars there is much to see here. The Mercedes -Benz museum contains all the new car designs alongside old favourites. There is also the Porsche museum. Stuttgart also has some beautiful old buildings including the New Palace and Schlossplatz. The New Palace was a royal residence but is a great example of baroque, classical and rococo styles.
For great views over the city visit the Television Tower where you can see the Black Forest on a clear day. If museums are your thing check out the Wurttemberg state museum housed in a moated castle built in the 13th century. It houses mediaeval paintings, sculptures and crown jewels. If you have time it is also worth heading out to the Ludwigsburg, Germanys largest baroque castle.
