Useful Information, Stuttgart
Favorite thing: When you are getting to Stuttgart for the first time, I highly recommend stopping into to the Stuttgart Tourist Information Office, which is located directly across the street from the Stuttgart Hbf (main train station). After arriving on your train, leave the platforms, and follow the escalators down to the underground shopping area, and follow signs to KoenigStra(B)e. Once you are going on the up escalator back from the underground shopping area, the tourist information kiosk with be on your immediate left at the top of the escalator. This location is very convienent and has accommodation booking areas, local tour ticket information, as well as plenty of reading material to plan your journey. It also contains local maps, train schedules and local art shows/markets.
I found very interesting thing about a PDA for tourists. I never tried but now I'M very curious and guess one time must try it. You can get a PDA from the Stuttgart touristic information or you can buy software for your own PDA.
You can rent it for 4 hours € 5 or 8 hours € 8 and also you can have it up to 3 days. You have to pay 100 € deposit and copy of passport.

Stuttgart is surrounded by some of the most lucious green valleys anywhere on the banks of the Neckar River. It is the capital of the German state of Baden-Wurttemberg and is one of the country's most industrialized cities. There are dozens of major publishing houses here as well as more famously, the Porsche and Mercedes-Benz headquarters.
Fondest memory: This is a picture of the city's finest square in front of the Royal Palace.
