Stuttgart - day trips

by tahiti


i want to make a day trip to Strasbourg from Stuttgart. What would be the best way to travel? It's a group of 4, so would it be cheaper to rent a car than to take the tain? is their any local travel agency in Stuttgart who organizes day trips for small groups?

Is there any nice scenic place i can visit in half a day?

Thanks for the help!

The cheapest way to travel to Strasbourg is to purchase a Baden-Württemberg Ticket and travel by regional trains. The ticket costs 28 Euro and up to five people can travel on it, and even travel within Stuttgart is included. The only condition is to start travel no earlier than 9am. The ticket is valid until 3am of the next day.

Additionally you have to purchase a return ticket from the border to Strasbourg, so from Kehl (last stop in Germany) to Strasbourg, for each of you. Best you do this in Stuttgart already. Cost per person 7.20 Euro, so 28.80 Euro. In total you would come to 56.80 Euro.

However, it takes you up to 3.5 hours by regional trains, whereas the fastest train connections do it under 2 hours, the fastest one in 1:19 hour. But this would cost you 39 Euro one way PER PERSON.

Surely travel by train is less stressful than by car, where you could also end up in traffic jams, and I have had many in those roads. Let's say, a car would be much cheaper than travelling in fast trains, but more expensive (do not forget costs for petrol and parking) than the slow trains. Perhaps you get yourselves some food and drinks for the slow train trip and could have fun together...

More ideas for half day trips/activities from Stuttgart:

- river cruise on the Neckar, starts right in Stuttgart

- Ludwigsburg; Blühendes Barock; nice town and castle, and fabulous gardens

It is only 10 minutes from Stuttgart by train.

- Rottweil = Baden-Württemberg's oldest town, less than 1.5 hours by train
(Dreadful website bare of inspiring photos...)

Rottweil is as fabulous and romantic as Tübingen, but I would probably go to Tübingen because it takes only 1 hour to get there.

Other - but not scenic - activities in Stuttgart would be the Mercedes Benz Museum and the Porsche factory/museum.

Travel Tips for Stuttgart

believe it or not, in...

by nathasha

believe it or not, in stuttgart there is the biggest botanical gardens in europe!!! it is a beautiful place, and you can find exotic plants, lotus ponds and even flamingos there! next to it is a zoo, which is not so nice...the animals look sad in their small cages and missing their original home in the jungle :(( these lotuses can't swim, they are quite happy to stay in the pond, i would imagine :))

Ritter Sport - Chocolate lovers go for it!

by sniem

About half an hour drive from Stuttgart lies Waldenbuch which is a beautiful town with a medieval historic center which is worth a visit. But the reason to go is the chocolate factory of Ritter Sport, they also have a shop that is open from mo-fr. You get all their flavours, and the so called "Bruch-Schokolade" which is a lot cheaper and last not least they often have market test chocolates.

German Breakfast

by daryll about Any guest house

It was a very big breakfast, and i was amazed having salami and liver pate, served with typical german pretzel and homemade crossaint, does really make a good day to start to explore stuttgart.

What i miss most it the Precious pork liver pate (which i will never eat before) but after introduced it became my most favourite process meat items.
Nice way of eating it with mustard on you rye bread.

Mercedes museum tour

by tmikeyt

I was sorry to have missed my opportunity to see the Porsche factory, but I failed to heed another warning that you must call ahead. You should heed my advice and call. But I did enjoy spending an hour there, looking at the museum.

I never tried to tour the Mercedes factory, after all, they have so many of them throughout Germany. But I did drive across the city and tour the Mercedes Museum and I'm glad that I did. If you want to see the better museum and have only limited time, or perhaps a limited view to your enthusiasm from your spouse or other travel companions, I'd suggest the Mercedes Museum as it is much better.

When you have arrived at the front door by shuttle (see in directions below), you will walk in and to the right, you will find a staffed kiosk where friendly and helpful attendants will provide you with a recorded tour in the language of your choice. I cannot remember if it was free to use this item, but I think it was. Forgive me if I'm wrong about that. Anyway, this thing is controlled by you, as to the pace. At a certain point, I chose to turn it off until I found something I wanted to know more about. Whatever your particular Mercedes interest, you should find some representation of it here. There were way too many of the first years cars for me. But all of the old Formula 1 cars and road cars and everything else was here. The museum is stylish and easy to navigate. There is a nice boutique and cafe (and nope, the food and drink is not expensive). This is a museum and there's not much for small kids unless they like cars. So if possible you should avoid taking them, although the museum is kid friendly. I think they do have a rule about keeping them with you at all times.

The museum is closed on Mondays and public holidays, but is open Tuesdays through Sunday from 9-5. The parking is free, the tour is free. The layout is about 3 stories high, but the layout uses ramps that you walk up and more cars are laid out along the way. Individual tours can be arranged, but you'll need to call first.

Cannstatter Wasen

by sniem

Not only Munich has its Oktoberfest also Stuttgart does and behind Munich it is the second largest volksfest worldwide. The tents are a tic smaller and there are more local people but in the end it's about the same. The Wasen always takes place at the end of September this year from Sep 27 to Oct.12 2003. Stuttgart also has a big Volksfest in Spring the Cannstatter Frühlingsfest this year from April 20th to Mai 12th.On Saturday the 19th we had a small but fantastic VT meeting in the Fürstenberg tent.
