Stuttgart Walking Tour – Get your feet ready

When you think of Stuttgart, you think of it being the home of Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, Bosch and such. And while this technology hub of Germany is known for these world famous companies, any visitor can see that this is a city filled with historic sites and filled with statues of lions, deer and horses everywhere. Want to know why?

Stuttgart, as it turns out, also has a rich historic side – which you can explore with our walking tour. This English language tour of Stuttgart covers some of the most significant historical sites in the city.

We will visit the House of History where a memorial center is dedicated to Claus Graf Stauffenberg. If that name sounds familiar, you have probably seen Tom Cruise playing a Nazi Colonel named Staufenberg who tries to assassinate Hitler in the Hollywood World War II thriller Valkyrie. Claus, a noble’s son, was raised in this city.

Our guide will provide you with fascinating stories about Stuttgart’s history as well as give you useful tips and information about sightseeing, restaurants and experiences that will enrich your visit.

Along the walk we will find the statues of Mercury and Stuttgardia, as well as several kings, and talk about their connection to the war. We will visit the Collegiate Church, or Stifskirche, a landmark from the 12th century. We will also go past the Bunker Hotel, a converted World War II bunker. 

The walk will also take you through the serene Academy Gardens, a lush oasis in the heart of the city, perfect for a leisurely stroll or a peaceful moment of reflection.
