Hi. I am taking a bus and the S-Bahn and the R-bahn today to get to my destination. What do I tell the bus driver? Do I pay him for the whole fare? Or do I pay him and then pay when I get on the s bahn also?
You most probably don't pay the driver at all but buy your ticket at the machine. If the bus driver can sell tickets (and that's a big IF) you have to tell him the final destination so you can get a ticket for as many zones as you need.
Best would be to use the ticket machines. In the case of S-Bahn or RB/RE trains you need a ticket before you board!
You can pay at the bus driver, but depending on your destination you'll need to tell the driver what ticket you need.
If your final destination is inside the VVS area check what ticket you will need
and tell the bus driver that you need e.g. a ticket for 3 zones
(The bus driver is no computer, he won't have all destinations in mind.)
If your final destination is outside the VVS area?
a) if the combined tickets are less than EUR 18,00
Buy a ticket for the bus trip and a rail ticket for the rest from the ticket machines.
b) if the combined tickets are more than EUR 18,00
Buy a Baden-Württemberg Single ticket (EUR 18,00) from the bus driver. Will cover the bus, S-Bahn and RB/RE trains.
And generally: try to pay as exact as possible in the buses
E.g. a EUR 20,00 note is OK for a EUR 18,00 ticket. But not for a EUR 3,00 ticket. And don't come with a EUR 50,00 note.
Travel Tips for Stuttgart
The VVS 3-Day Public Transport
The VVS 3-Day Public Transport Ticket covers all means of transport operated by the VVS (Stuttgart public transport authority) - rapid-transit railway, city trains and buses - and can be used without restriction by one adult and 2 children (aged 6-11) on three consecutive days in the Stuttgart inner zone including the airport. The ticket can only be purchased when you provide proof of a hotel reservation. It also includes discounts on tours and at theatres and attractions.
Take the tube
Stuttgart has a good system of many tube lines and tram stations. The S-Bahn is also good for some outskirts of the city.
A day ticket costs around 8 € for two zones for an adult. A single ticket is around 2 €. There are ticket machines on each station and it depends on the destination what you are paying. There is a list of all destinations and a number which you type in...
A few minutes driving from the center takes you to the Monte Scherbelino car park and a few minutes walking take you to the peak of this artificial mountain with a wonderful view over Stuttgart.
The mountain was "built" after World War II, when the destroyed city was tied up and all the stones and rubbish had to be put somewhere. They left some of the stones as a kind of monument - or decoration, or photo opportunity - and the rest is grass and trees and benches and a BBQ spot. The mountain got its name in honour of the many Italians who came to Stuttgart in the 1950s and 60s and helped building the new city.
You have great views over the city and the surrounding mountains, but no, unfortunately you cannot see how Porsche and Mercedes cars are made :-(
You can see the home of one of the greates German heroes of our times, Unser Jürgen, you find the picture in the Monte Scherbelino TL.
Place of Festivals
I remember visiting Market Square and the Rathaus - the City Council building -
especially on Christmas when the square turns into a big market are veri beautiful sites.
All stands were handmade and carefully decorated by people from all over Baden-Wuerttemberg.
Just to the south of the the Neues Schloss, and visible from Schlossplatz, is the Altes Schloss, or old palace. This palace dates back to the 10th century, where it was originally built as a moated castle. It has a beautiful 16th century Renaissance courtyard and a Protestant Castle Church built in 1562. The palace also hosts a vast museum with a vast collection of historical artifacts from the region, dating back through the ages.
