About Stuttgart Tourism
Germany's official home of Mercedes Benz, Stuttgart is located on the south-western side of Germany, where it is the capital of the Baden-Württemberg region. However, Stuttgart is far from being an industrial city and instead is filled with many large parks, such as the hillside Weissenburg Park, and plenty of surrounding woodlands. Highlights include the acclaimed Wilhelma Zoo, boat tours along the Neckar River, and the stunning Carl Zeiss Planetarium, which is shaped like a pyramid.
