1. Partying at the Bad Cannstatter Volksfest

Stuttgart’s answer to the Munich Oktoberfest, the Cannstatter Wasen is a beer festival held each fall with a giant “fruit column,” plenty of fun amusement park rides and good food. Be sure not to miss the world’s largest ferris wheel.

2. Taking A Tour Of The Mercedes Benz Museum

3. Channeling Moorish Spain At The Wilhelma Zoo

Apart from the impressive collection of over 8,000 animals, the architecture of this palace turned zoo is particularly noteworthy. Based on the Moorish style of southern Spain’s Alhambra, the structure alone makes this a worthwhile visit.

As the world’s first concrete TV tower, the Stuttgart TV Tower is a landmark building and became a model for the rest of Europe and the globe.
