Das Reiseland Deutschland 30 Jahre nach dem Mauerfall: Ulm, Heilbronn & Stuttgart
As a travel destination, Germany has continued to develop, modernise and generally spruce itself up over the last 30 years. If you enjoy city breaks and want to see as much of it as possible, then you should read on. @effemme19 went on a tour of Baden-Württemberg to the cities of Ulm, Heilbronn and Stuttgart to see what they’re like 30 years on from the fall of the Berlin Wall.
FISCHERVIERTEL QUARTER IN ULM.
OLD MEETS NEW IN ULM.
Ulm also has a modern side. The city’s municipal library is simply stunning – its glass pyramid design creates a wonderful contrast to the older buildings that surround it. So, if you’re looking for a great photo opportunity in Ulm, then it should be near the top of your list. What’s more, the library is equally worth seeing on the inside.
Next stop: Heilbronn. The city on the Neckar river, nestled among forests and vineyards, has changed a lot over the last 30 years too. There’s the Experimenta Science Centre, for example, whose impressive building houses interactive exhibits that bring science and technology to life. Touching the exhibits is positively encouraged here!
HEILBRONN’S OLD QUARTER.
STUTTGART STATE OPERA.
Next and final stop: Stuttgart. There’s plenty of beautiful and well-maintained architecture to admire here too, such as the round building of the State Opera in the Upper Palace Gardens.
THE OLD PALACE.
The historical edifice of this grand palace now houses a modern museum showcasing works of art from the Stone Age to the present. After your visit, why not go for a walk around the palace gardens and discover some of its hidden corners.
