The Stiftskirche (Collegiate Church) completes the triumvirate 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.
Just a little to the west of the city is a wonderful little place for a break from the hustle and bustle of the city. Here the Feuersee, a little lake, partially surrounds the impressive Johanneskirche, and produces a delightful view for sitting with a sandwich on a sunny afternoon. However, don't feed the ducks, as this apparently makes them "krank", according to the warnings around Feuerseeplatz. To get here just take S4, S5, or S6 and get off at the Feuersee stop. To get to the Feuerseeplatz, with its church and lake, you need to backtrack a little from where the tram came. You'll find it on your left. You will also pass Feuersee en route to Schloss Solitude on Bus 92, so you can stop off on the way back.
A church stood on this place already sometime in the 11th century. Over the years it obviously went through many reconstructions and renovations. During the WWII the church was heavily destroyed by bombing and thus it had to be restored. Besides the colorful stained glass windows, the insides of the church are rather poor in decoration nowadays.

Johanneskirche im Feuersee
A neo-gothic church in Stuttgart-West. It is located on a small peninsula in a pond which creates a marvelous view from the bank opposite to the church. In a busy city of Stuttgart it is a place like from a different world. A peaceful spot just perfect to sit down and relax, despite not being that far from the centre.
The Gothic cathedral, buil among 1433 and 1531 on a project of Alberlin Joerg, was destroyed during the Second War World. It was completely restored but the interior, with a single nave, was rebuilt in a completely anonymous style. On the left side you can see the grave of Elisabeth of Bavaria; around the altar you can see many other graves (albrecht Hohenlohe Langenburg).

Stiftskirche is Stuttgart´s City Church. This church was built on the site of a Roman basilica from the 12th century during 1433 - 1531 as a late Gothic nave church (then rebuilt during1950 - 1959). The West Tower is over 60 metres high.
This Gothic style church is nestled on a hill in a really great location for taking pictures just over Fire Lake.
This church is one of the most beautiful sights that I saw in Stuttgart. Parts of the building date back to the 12th century.
