Stuttgart experts: I will be arriving from the US into Stuttgart about 8am (on a Saturday). We are staying one night at the Kronen Hotel and I'm not sure if I should take a taxi there or try the train. If there are not too many transfers to get to the hotel then I'd like to try the train, otherwise, with luggage and being tired, I'm tempted to just take a taxi. Can you give me logistics on the train option with specific directions?
Second question. We will be starting a road trip the next day heading down to Meersburg first and then along the alpine way. Is there a rental car agency near the Kronen Hotel for our car pickup or do I have to go back to the airport? If I go back to the airport for the car, is it better to just get the car our first day in and park at our hotel?
