Where to stay...

by sailornappo

... will be arriving at the Stuttgart airport on march 27 for a 3 week round trip to places in Germany in a rental car we pick up at the Etap Hotel Stuttgart, Siemensstr.
I am sure there are quite a few places of interest, so we may stay 2-3 days before we get on the road. Because the Rental car outfit is quite some distance from the Airport, would a taxi ride be very expensive?
Any recommmendations as to where to stay for that time (we are a couple) nothing too expensive, but with breakfast and maybe airport shuttle? Perhaps even a B&B or Pension?

On another note, has anyone used one of those "Becker" Navigationsgerät in a car that can be rented at an additional 4.00 euro/day? Are they worth the extra expense? We are planning to make a round trip of about 2000 km, icl. the black forest, Bodensee, Rhein area, Salzburg etc. By the way, I do speak german, but am from Canada.

Any hints are more than just appreciated.
Norbert

With breakfast is standard. Airport shuttle and "nothing too expensive" is a difficult combination. And not offered by B&B or Pensions anyway.
Stuttgart Airport is well connected by public transport. E.g. the S-Bahn lines S2 and S2. Just use the above linked timetable to see if there are good connections to your hotel or wherever you plan to stay.

A good deal is the 3-Day-Ticket

As it covers the whole VVS area, not just Stuttgart you can also use it to visit Esslingen or Ludwisgburg.

We have a Navigon Navigational unit and it is phenomenal. You won't regret it if you get it. Get it! No more getting lost.

I don't exactly know about the "Becker" Navigationsgerät but if it is anything like my Garmin navigator it sure is worth every penny you spend on it.

My navigator gives me driving directions turn-by-turn and with it you can practically never get lost or waste time looking for directions etc.

A big Thank you all for info supplied. Am looking forward now to a good time and fun with the navigator!

Stuttgart

Population: 590,000
Stadium: Gottlieb-Daimler (47,757)

Fanfest:
Schlossplatz, the main square in the town centre, three enormous screens.

Is this a football city:
Stuttgart is one of Germany's most affluent cities. 'Everybody has a nice car' is the usual comment associated with Stuttgarters, and both Mercedes and Porsche have museums here. The newly refurbished Mercedes-Benz museum is right next to the football stadium, boasts nine floors and is definitely worth a look. Jurgen Klinsmann is from the region and played for both Geislingen (a nearby town where he still owns a sports shop) and VfB Stuttgart..

Local heroes:
For the high-brow, there's the philosopher Georg Hege and writer Friedrich Schiller. Then there's Gottlieb-Daimler and Robert Bosch, who pioneered the first highspeed gasoline engine and ignition motor - hence Stuttgart's association with automobile technology..

Dining:
"Spätzle" are a cross between dumplings and noodles, typically served with meat dishes. Buttery and stodgy, they're perfect with a beer. Brezen (known in the UK as 'pretzels') are the snack of the region and Stuttgarters boast of having the best in the country. Tiny one-woman kiosks are scattered throughout the city where you can buy them plain, buttered or filled with salami and cheese. Don't miss the Black Forest gateau and the local wine..

Opernhaus der Wurttembergischen Staatstheater

by antistar

The opera house was formelly the Royal Court Theater, and was built from sandstone between 1909 and 1912 by Max Littman. It contains over nearly 1400 seats, and puts on many prominent performances. The building was fully restored to its original state in 1984.

Stiftskirche

by antistar

The Stiftskirche (Collegiate Church) completes the triumverate of landmarks in Schillerplatz. It was built by Albert Jorg in the 15th and 16th centuries, and is the main Protestant church for Stuttgart. While there is no structural reminder of it, there was an earlier church on this site dating to the 10th or 11th century, and its boundaries lie with the centre of the modern Stiftskirche.
