Whether world-famous ballet or multi-award-winning opera, top-class exhibitions or temporary off-spaces - Stuttgart's culture is excellent. Discover entertaining cultural tours, varied events and diverse museums from A for Auto to S for Staatsgalerie and W for Weissenhof. Live music, dance and (minor) art - a feast for the eyes and ears awaits you!

In Stuttgart, the focus is on the past and the future: as the birthplace of the automobile, but also as a future driver of mobility. You will find everything you need to know on the subject here, from museums, automobile and technology tours, historical anecdotes and interesting facts about technology and science. 

Enjoyment is a top priority here: In addition to exquisite star gastronomy, down-to-earth traditional cuisine also provides culinary highlights. And anyone who has ever tasted a tender roast onion, a recent Kässpätzle or a warm Ofenschlupfer with vanilla sauce knows that this is what Swabian soul food tastes like.
