It was during the Kingdom of Württemberg that Stuttgart began to develop into what it is today: the automobile city. Industrialization shaped the country, the city, and the people like no other era. Even though times have changed since then, the paths through the former vineyards and, thus, the charm of Stuttgart have survived.
No other city in Europe has more "Stäffele" (stairways) to offer than Stuttgart.
Dive in and let an experienced, native Stuttgart-born city guide take you digitally through the history of the lovely state capital of Baden-Württemberg on your own smartphone.
A city in a valley and a tour uphill to the probably most beautiful viewpoint of Stuttgart.
This tour offers city history, stories, as well as challenges. Thus, on this Stäffeles tour you can enjoy both at the same time: you will have fun outdoors and learn about the history of Stuttgart.
