Neat quick stop

Worth an hour of your time on a clear day. Great views! 7-8 dollars to take the elevator to the top.

The lift takes you all the way to the top (thank goodness) and there is another platform via steps when you get to the top. There is also a restaurant/cafe at the top which was full so can't advise. The views from the top are amazing. Well worth a visit.

Definitely worth a visit! Just over €10 (maybe €15, can't remember) and gives fantastic views of the city. We went at night and it was brilliant and could see for miles. With a bar and restaurant at the top it was so good. We stayed at Alexanderplatz, but if not the S-Bahn station is less than a 5 minute walk.

We visited the TV tower at the beginning of February and with google maps showing only a two mile walk we decided that was the best idea. 45 minutes later we arrived at the tv tower and honestly the pain of the steep hills was worth it for the views and walk through the forest. However be aware it is... More

Take time out from the city and come and visit this place. Its well connected by the U train service, don't be put off because it's not marked on the tourist maps you get from the tourist information centre. We took the U7 from the city centre as it has slightly less stops. Once you get off the tube it's... More

Well Stuttgart is not really beautiful from high up here. I do not recommend the extra drive to the tower.

This is the oldest TV tower in the world. The view is nice, you'll get to see both the city (from a fair distance, however) and the surroundings. The lines can be long, but tend to move fairly quickly. The cafe above is rather cramped, and not particularly spectacular, while Leonard's down below is pretty nice

architecturally a wonderful looking tower. Only 20 euros for a family of 4, free parking. Use POI to find it on the satnav not the postcode. Nice gift shop. quick ascent, great views of Stuttgart, good facts to read in the lift and at the cafe. Restaurant at the bottom. Can be windy!

We went when it was just getting dark. Superb scenic beauty. Also very romantic. We went in the winter so it was very windy and extremely cold. But still worth it. The view is absolutely stunning!
