      • Castles old and new: Stuttgart is home to not one, but two intriguing castles. The Old Castle recalls the city's medieval equestrian legacy while the New Castle oozes Baroque palatial charm.
      • Public spaces: The heart of old Stuttgart clusters around the city's public squares. The Castle Square is your gateway to the New Castle and contains the Mercury Pillar, a column built in 1598. Schiller Square, next door, is where you can find sites like the Old Castle and Collegiate Church. 
      • Staatstheater: Built for the royal family of the Kingdom of Wurttemberg in the last days of the German empire, the Stuutgart State Theater hosts a lively variety of opera and theatrical performances throughout the year.

      Stuttgart, the sixth-largest city in Germany, has a lot to offer. You will traverse the famous pedestrian Konigsstrasse, or King Street, on this GoBe tour of the city's central highlights. Your guide will immediately plunge you into Stuttgart's fascinating architectural past with tales of the main rail station and its tower, topped by a Mercedes-Benz star, symbol of the city's industrial power.

      Stroll along Konigsstrasse toward the center of Stuttgart and its two castles. The Old Castle was built in the 10th century and boasts Renaissance upgrades like an equestrian staircase, constructed so nobility could ride their horses to the upper levels. Next door is the New Castle, a Baroque palace completed around the turn of the 19th century. Many cities are lucky to have even one castle, so enjoy the pair!

      If you're a fan of music and theater, you'll especially enjoy seeing the Stuttgart opera house. It's a building fit for a king. In fact, it was designed as a royal theater in the early 1900s when Stuttgart was still the capital city of the Kingdom of Wurttemberg.

      Make your way through the grand central squares of Stuttgart, the Schlossplatz, and the Schillerplatz. Don't hesitate to ask questions, stop to look at interesting things, and even get a little lost with your guide as you make your way through the Stuttgart city center. This is your chance to experience the city and make special, long-lasting memories on your tour.

      Garden of studs

      The coat of arms of Stuttgart is known by sight worldwide, though most people would be baffled to realize it. The symbol of a rearing black stallion is recognized around the globe as the logo of Porsche automobiles. Porsche originated in Stuttgart and chose to recognize its roots with the city's ancient equestrian symbol. But where does Stuttgart's coat of arms come from? The clue is in the name: Stuttgart is a modern German version of a name designating the settlement as a site for breeding cavalry horses. Stuttgart was literally once the garden of studs!
