GET AROUND

Public transport consists of the S-Bahn and the underground Stadtbahn and the bus network. The system is working until 0100 in the morning, though you might find some night buses. Getting around becomes easier if you have a 3 day ticket with you, and there are two of those: one for Stuttgart city (Zone 10 and zone 20) and one for the whole VVS network.All day ticktes are a good idea also remember to stamp the tickets. The stap machines are inside the vehicles for buses and the undergrounds, but at the stations for the S-Bahn. Two special modes of transports are the rack railway and the cable car; but the regular tickets work there too.

Walking is an excellent way to get around most of the major attractions.
