Stuttgart, the capital of the state of Baden-Württemberg, and the eighth largest city of Germany, is a thriving centre of culture, commerce, and cars. Considered the starting point of the worldwide automotive industry, global automotive manufacturers such as Mercedes-Benz and Porsche, and automotive component suppliers Bosch and Mahle have their headquarters in and around the Stuttgart Area. Also known for its rich cultural heritage, Stuttgart offers visitors a combination of both traditional and contemporary sites, nestled in stunning greenery. We recommend visiting schools to schedule moments where they can enjoy all that Stuttgart has to offer. Visit the Porsche Museum with it's incredible showcase of racing cars, take a stroll through the botanical and zoological gardens of the Wilhelma, climb the Fernsehturm for an extraordinary panorama of Stuttgart, or enjoy the diverse shopping and dining experiences of the Königstraße.
