What people are saying about Stuttgart

Young Grandkids joined me in a roundtrip adventure and while I enjoyed the views, they could play UNO and checkers and point out the cool workings of the locks going up and down. The Vineyards looked a little dry but admiring the cliffs and many steps among them was something for us all. Many Bikers joined along the stops for bier, wine or coffee until all the cakes were gone. We had very nice table service for lunch and the Chef was pleased with his compliments. The kids were please that they did not run out of ice cream.

Reiner was a highlight, his complex guide/city guide training makes him a walking encyclopedia for Stuttgart and far beyond! As a Segway coach, we felt safe and well guided at all times, and again at any time!! Organization, implementation and "material" was impeccable... and the fact that we were the only participants on this trip certainly didn't hurt us. ♂️ ♀️ Thank you very much!

That was 2 relaxed hours, enough information but not constant loudspeaker announcements. Food (Maultaschen) was delicious and we liked the idea behind it, everything regional - including the drinks.

This museum is state of the art and it has the weirdest illusions.

The museum is not very big, but we all had a lot of fun.
