Visit Stuttgart - Best of Stuttgart

Not sure why the city’s name translates literally to “Mare’s Garden”, but Stuttgart is otherwise charming as anything. The first people to live here were the Romans, and the place became a proper city around the 13th century, when some royal dudes decided this was a fine spot. The slogan of the city reads “Stuttgart offers more”. Without making too many puns, we’ll admit that it certainly is a home for the automobiles. The city is terrifically friendly (even if they don’t speak the best English). Oh, it turns out they used to breed a lot of horses in the meadow here around the Middle Ages. Museums, architecture and lots of shopping (and a beer festival) – that’s why you wanna visit.
