Despite its reputation as the “cradle of the automobile,” Stuttgart, Germany and its surrounding regions are a mecca of natural and architectural beauty. With roots extending as deep as the 10th century, Stuttgart is a city of tradition, yet its large immigrant minority keeps the current cultural scene alive with new music, cuisine, language and art. Here is a list of the 10 best hotels in the Stuttgart region to check into during your stay.
Only 10 minutes by train outside the Stuttgart city center, Hotel und Pension Adler is a family-owned hotel situated in a building that dates back to 1617. The rooms are simple, with a quirky décor of odds and ends the owners have accumulated over the years. A typical German breakfast featuring cheese, cold cuts, bread and hard-boiled eggs is served each morning. For an escape from the hustle and bustle of downtown Stuttgart, spend some time strolling along the local wine trails, or exploring the nearby towns of Esslingen and Bad Canstatt.
