A friend wants to go to Ikea in Sindelfingen or Ludwigsburg but dont know how to with public transport, can anyone help?
Sindelfingen would be a better option for her, however it seems not so possible to get to without a car.
The Ludwigsburg branch is further but when I look on the web, there seems to be 3 buses stopping just outside. Where do these buses depart from? Can she get the bus from Ludwisburg/Tamm S-Bahn Station or Stuttgart Hbf?
Can she check the bus schedule somewhere?
To: [Station/Stop] Ikea, Ludwigsburg
To: [Address] Sindelfingen, Hanns-Martin-Schleyer-Str. 2
Both are part of the VVS network, i.e. VVS tariff applies.
IDEA Ludwigsburg is definately accessible without cars. There are busses from Ludwigsburg Bahnhof (the S-Bahn from Stuttgart center stops there), going to IKEA (check the vvs page, it is great - you can get a door-to-door connection including your walking path). The bus even has 'IKEA' as the destination written on top.
Sindelfingen is accessible with public transport, too, but I haven't done it myself yet.
But keep in mind that everything you buy you have to carry back on the bus ;)
Haha that was a funny one! Thanks for all the replies. She plans to use the delivery service. If the web translation works, any purchases with a total over 400 euros will cost 79 euros to deliver right?
Anyone has any idea how long it takes if the item is in stock?
Could you let me know how to get to the Sindelfingen branch cos ideally thats nearer? Thanks!
Yeah, would be a bit difficult to transport a whole sofa on the bus ^^
Sindelfingen - i cannot remember how I found out how to get there last time; i guess I just checked the vvs-page for the street of IKEA (it's hans-martin-schleyer strasse 2 in Sindelfingen). You take the train or S-Bahn to Boeblingen Bahnhof, there change to bus 757 or 701 for a few stations, and then she has to walk for 7 or 8 minutes. You better check this out yourself on vvs.de, it gives you a detailed plan how to walk.
No idea why I thought this would be more convenient?? Doesn't look like.
Travel Tips for Stuttgart
Football from high up
Being on top of the TV Tower at night, when down in the stadium next to it the 'Stuttgarter Kickers' were playing.
It was 1-1 when we got up and when we went down again 15 minutes later it was 3-2. It was funny watching them play from up there and hearing the people shout.
Lovely old tavern with FREE BEER
As mentioned in my travel tips, get yourself a Stuttcard ASAP because you can help yourself to free coffee, cake and beer at many places around town.
Paulaner is a lovely old tavern near the top end of historic Calwerstrasse with its many cafes and restaurants. It opens out onto a fountain and plaza shaded by trees.
Inside just hand over your Stuttcard voucher to receive a free 300ml glass of their beer! You'll be handed a menu as well, the prices on which might make you choke on your nice cold lager, but they make no noises if you smile and say 'maybe later!'.
Another thing a MUST TRY when come to GErmany especially events in the summer is to eat GErman sausages. THEy called it wurst. Huge and succelent eaten either on its own or with a hotdog bun. I had it with gherkin pickles and mustard for dinner. JUST PERFECT.
House of History
The building in this photo is not just another wing of the State Art Gallery, nor is it part of the adjoining University of Music and Performing Arts.
But since it looks exactly like both of these, I never realized until after about six visits to Stuttgart that it is something else entirely, namely a museum of the history of the state of Baden-Württemberg from about 1800 to the present.
From what I've seen so far it looks like a very lively and well-researched multi-media museum, so I'm definitely going to have a closer look the next time I'm in Stuttgart on a rainy day.
The exhibits seem to be mostly in German, logically enough, but audioguides in English and French are available at the information desk.
Neues Mercedes-Museum / New Mercedes-Museum
Das neue Mercedes-Museum bietet eine nahezu lückenlose Dokumentation über die Entstehung des weltweit bekannten und erfolgreichen Automobilbauers.
Es besticht durch seine einzigartige Architektur.
The pioneers of the motorcar were Gottleib Daimler and Carl Benz, who, separately, began to make cars at the end of the 19th century. The impressive Mercedes-Benz Museum tells the story of their partnership via recorded commentary amid numerous gleaming vehicles. The 100 automobiles on display include the first car ever built. Mercedes-Benz also runs free tours of its Sindelfingen plant.
