This area is good for photos but really I did not find the garden area big enough to sit and enjoy plus the entire area feels cordoned off by the other buildings. There are better gardens in the city and areas to relax. This is more a meeting point rather than your typical social area. There is some reconstruction as... More

Nice place to walk around, especially when there is some marketplace nearby. Xmas or Winedorf or any other event - just go there and enjoy the atmosphere.

The city center is very nice with a lot of places to walk and sit, gardens, fountains, restaurants, and shops. We sat on a bench and just watched people and enjoyed the sun. Plenty of restaurants and everyone was friendly.

The buzz in the square definitely reflects that it is the center of the city. It was well worth the visit and stop for a beer on the square.

I went there over the weekend and there was a festival all over. Many food stand, beer stands and bands playing. Very entertaining and a nice addition to our trip.

Strolling and shopping along Konigstrasse, the main pedestrian street of Stuttgart, maybe a liitle bit tyring. The Schlossplatz with the big grass areas is the ideal place to relax, lying down on grass, collecting energie to go on. The huge square of grass and fountains is surrounded by majestic buildings, evidence to the great past of the town.

Excellent place to people-watch, to lie on the grass in the summer, read a book and just watch the world go by

Reallz nice place to walk. Seems like you are coming from 21st century exactly to 16th (=D?) Relaxing, people are walking around, you can take an ice-cream and enjoy or visit Alte Kanzlei, which is actually really good restaurant
