Nice city center of Stuttgart. In the summer there are people lying out by the fountains and sitting at the outdoor restaurants. In the winter there is an ice rink and winter markets. Lots of shops surrounding this area too.

Any time of year, Shlossplatz is a wonderful place to visit in central Stuttgart. Great in Spring or Winter during the Weihnachts Markt.

Schlossplatz is the centre of everything that happens in Stuttgart central and at New Year Eve it is the place to be. The surrounding buildings add to the atmosphere and the nearby hill give depth to the view. Where to stay... More
