Christmas from A to Z

Christmas market in Stuttgart

The centre of Stuttgart is transformed into a magical winter wonderland during Advent. More than 280 uniquely charming and lavishly decorated Christmas stands tempt visitors from all over the world. Christmas concerts on the steps up to the town hall and in the inner courtyard of the Old Castle will draw you into their path with their festive ambience. Especially children love the nativity scenes, the giant nutcracker and the many other attractions in Weihnachtskinderland, where they can paint and bake to their heart’s content. Try the famous Stuttgart Hutzelbrot with its many fruits – it’s a real treat. Still more unusual delicacies are promised by the Finnish Christmas village with grilled salmon, Reindeer slices in sauce, and Glögi - a mulled berry wine. If you’re still feeling cold after that, warm up in the pavilion next to a log fire crackling away in a brazier. If you’re after a special gift, you’re sure to find it in the antiques market on Karlsplatz.

Hop on the S1 from Stuttgart Hauptbahnhof and 2 stops later thou arrive at the superb museum of automotive giants: Mercedes Benz. Even if you are not a automobile junkie, the Mercedes Museum is a fascinating drive through 125 years of automotive history intertwined with all the key historical events that have marked the evolution of the world’s great car. The museum has curated a great gallery of pictures of key events that have shaped the history of the world that mark the evolution of the car that includes poignant memories like people having a picnic by the autobahn in the 60’s or the empty autobahns of the winter of 1973 when due to oil shortages , a car free Sunday ( 5 of them) was imposed- the images haunt you for hours after you have left the museum.
