|Guided City Tours Stuttgart|
Classical guided tour
Historical, architectural and scenic highlights of the regional capital
The classical guided tour through the Swabian metropolis starts in the courtyard of the Old Castle. Our walk leads via the "Schillerplatz", where you can also see the "Stiftskirche", to the "Markthalle" (market hall). This building with its Art Nouveau style has fascinated its interested and hungry visitors to date. We will walk past the "Schlossplatz" to the "Schlossgarten" (palace garden) with its architectural contrasts between opera house and house of parliament. From there we will head towards Sir Stirling's masterpiece, the "cultural mile" at the Konrad-Adenauer-Strasse. It continues uphill beyond the famous "Eugensstaffeln" to Stuttgart's sought-after residential area at the "Eugensplatz". We take enchanted alleys on our way back downtown. Finally, the tour ends at the Wilhelmspalais, the residence of the last King of Wuerttemberg.
See Stuttgart from below and above
The Stuttgart Stäffelestour includes a walk through both the valley and hills of Stuttgart. Located in the valley are the sights everyone should see while visiting Stuttgart, such as the Old Palace, Schillerplatz (the old Castle square), the Market Hall (Markthalle), the New Palace, the Opera and Stuttgart’s "Cultural Mile".
After learning about the city’s architecture and history we will begin our walk up steps (the "Staffeln"), which lead us to the hills of Stuttgart. The Eugensstaffel takes us to Eugens Square and then the Hillerstaffel takes us to a small cannon house. After walking through an elegant area of the heights above the city, the Gänsheide, we will walk on to the Villa Reitzenstein, the residence of the prime minister of the State of Baden-Württemberg, located on the Richard-Wagner-Heights. From there you can enjoy a breathtaking view of downtown Stuttgart. One of the most beautiful steps in Stuttgart is the Sünderstaffel, which takes us back down to the valley and city center. The word "Sünder" means sinner. It will be revealed why these steps were named "Sünderstaffel".
