Flying to Stuttgart

Stuttgart is accessible via Stuttgart Airport (airport code STR) which is 13 kilometres south of the city centre. Stuttgart Airport is a hub for Germanwings and TUIfly. In addition to Germanwings, Lufthansa, and Air Berlin fly from Stuttgart the most.

With a population of exceeding 600,000, Stuttgart is Germany's sixth largest city and unlike many industrial German cities, it is situated over rolling hills, parks, vineyards, and has much green scenery.

Stuttgart is home to Cannstatter Volksfest, the world's second largest beer festival. The festival takes place in September and October.

Stuttgart is home to many interesting sights. There is a Mercedes-Benz Museum, a Porsche Museum and company headquarters, the Wilhelma Zoo and Botanical Garden, a monastery built in 1463, the world's first television tower, the Württemberg State Museum, as well as a variety of castles.

Stuttgart is one of Germany’s safest cities and also one of its most prosperous. Many high tech companies have their German, if not global, headquarters within the city. Despite the strong technological presence, local vineyards still contribute much to the economy.
