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.

While we only saw the Schlossplatz during the Christmas market, you could tell how lovely this area would be without this distraction. Large open area with beautiful fountains and buildings. Can't wait to return in warmer weather to see it again

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

Christmas Market slightly took away some of the charm from the square but added it's own! Lovely area for a wander around and looked very pretty all lit up at night.

The place is in the middle of the main shopping district so you are to walk by it. There is a major construction work going on so not a great time to get your photos.
