This is a rack railway operating the very steep route from Marienplatz up to Degerloch. If you have any interest in unusual transport this is worth a visit. Journey time around 10 mins, lots of departures everyday.

Germany´s train system is one of the best I´ve experienced so far. From Flughafen (airport), just follow the green logo bearing letter "S" and take the S-Bahn either S2 or S3. Both will stop by at the Hauptbanhof (main station) and you can transit to whatever train linie for your journey. Check out www.bahn.de for the main Die Bahn i.e. the train company for info. Or www.vvs.de for the local train info which includes buses.
Along the way, you´ll be greeted with beautiful valley scenery and it slowly change into more urban as you reached Hauptbanhof.
Tickets will be according to zone and it´s applicable to all buses, U-Bahn and S-Bahn depending on your destination.
If it´s early spring (Frühling), I think some music will be played in the U-Bahn announcing the next station. Sang by a local Stuutgart acapella group. It was funny.
Getting around Stuttgart is fairly easy with the vast number of trains and railway systems throughout Stuttgart as well as from neighboring cities. The convenience allows you to walk only 1 or 2 blocks before you can access a rail stop. The cost is inexpensive and you can take multiple trains to maneuver anywhere in the city.
Stuttgart is 222 km. northwest of München and 207 kms. south of Frankfurt.
You can find here the distances together with the driving time and the best route.
