Comprising much of the Kernerviertel neighborhood is the stunning Mittlerer Schlossgarten. The park is over 600 years old and hosts the Stuttgart Castle. Mittlerer Schlossgarten is divided into three subsections: the upper palace garden, the middle castle garden, and the lower castle garden. Each of these boasts multiple sights for visitors. The upper garden has the houses of parliament, an opera house, and a theater, while in the middle garden, visitors can find ruins of the Lusthaus, a lakeside café, a beer garden and a train station. The lower gardens hosts mineral baths and beautiful mountainside terrain.
Kühnertová is the quintessential trendy German shopping experience. The boutique mixes art and literature with clothing as they print their own textiles. The shop’s designers use poems, short stories and novels for the inspiration of their pieces, making each one truly unique. Each of Kühnertová’s collections is hand-printed with remarkable patterns and the store hopes that customers will be able to receive poetic messages from these textiles after purchasing them.
While visiting Kernerviertel, the Carl-Zeiss Planetarium cannot be missed! Funded by the Carl-Zeiss foundation, the planetarium is one of the most visited in Germany. The planetarium hosts a large variety of different programs, astronomy shows, and courses and seminars. The Carl-Zeiss Planetarium is one of the best in the world due to its top-of-the-line Zeiss Mark IX Universarium projection dome and new Velvet projection system.
One of Stuttgart’s best photographers, Herb Allgaier, displays his collection in his Kernerviertel-based studio. Specializing in portraits, people, and still life, Allgaier’s work is both beautiful and representative of the culture of Stuttgart. While most customers come to the studio in order to have photos taken, much of Allgaier’s work is displayed throughout space.
