Who's been?
What can I expect?

I'm off there next Sunday for 5 days.

My partner is from there (you wouldn't guess by talking to her), I hope I enjoy the trip. I will take a camera & my go pro.

It is the home of Mercedes....
A great visitor centre.

Like all german cities, good public transport, good food and drink and a lot of modern building, thanks to the demolition job in the 1940s.

Enjoy.......with a local guide you will be fine, and everyone under 30 speaks English.

We were there a few months ago. Would recommend the Porsche Museum, Mercedes factory tour and Mercedes Museum, also the Technik museums at Sinsheim and Speyer.

Definitely try to avoid driving in the centre during rush hour, everywhere was totally gridlocked and it took us nearly three times longer to get out of town than it did to get in earlier in the day.

Some speak better English than German in Stuttgart hide
Go and visit the Mercedes and Porsche Museum. Nice landscape around as well. If your partner is from Stuttgart she will know the nice places, roads and country restauants etc.

If you are driving remember that Stuttgart is a low emissions zone

www.stuttgart.de/en/item/show/573353

and you have to show a sticker on your windscreen.

Not been to that esteemed city, but I suspect German Taxis (Mercs), some beer and the odd sausage may put in an appearance.

Enjoy.

As I said regarding the above links, two really cool places.
You can visit one of the nice historical towns if you like to make a daytrip by car, sorry, only German links.

http://www.quermania.de/baden-wuerttemberg/backnang/backnang.php

The best thing is that your partner is local and will know the best landmarks.

I‘m not so very familiar with this area of Germany, other than visiting clients but Tübingen is much nicer than Stuttgart, sorry I does not want to insult anyone from Stuttgart. Tübingen has a very old universitiy is a historical town and the surroundings and landscapes of Tübingen are very nice as well!

Sorry the link is German perhaps can google translator help but the link shows a nice motorbike tour starting in Tübingen at the north of the route. It should work by car as well. And you can make stops to have some walks during the tour.

https://kurvenkoenig.de/motorrad/schwaebische-alb/tuebingen.html

I have some friends from that area and I will ask them, what they would recommend to see in addition.

My German friend comes from their . I went out for a walk on the evening of his wedding . Very soon he had his coat on and told me to jump into his car . Stopped at a small row of shops and in front of us was a sex shop . I said " I am not going into one of those ". To be told the door next to it . It was a bar . Not a woman in sight , after a drink I had to ask " where are your women " He pointed to a door in the corner , I walked over opened it and loads of pretty women dancing with each other . I waved him over . Then had to go and ask him " come on its your last night of freedom lets enjoy it " But he just wanted to drink . I had to drown my sorrows . Got put in his car and carried to bed by a few when we got back . That tiny church on the hill in Sindlefingen ? was full as the priest was the brides uncle . It was a bit late due to an English chap . I got my leg pulled off most of the men for getting drunk. I was feeling great till I stepped out of the bar and into the fresh air. cheers I had never been before in S/fingen but within an hour of arriving I had gone for a walk in the forest and was told I would get lost . A few hours later I was back at the house . I have woods etc all around where I live .

Hi Lawrie, your PM is full. I just wanted to show you this results of restaurants in Tübingen.

https://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurants-g198539-Tubingen_Baden_Wurttemberg.html

This one below seems to be famous for Swabian ravioli as friends told me also.

https://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_R...urttemberg.html

And you can look for restaurants offering local specialities when you should make the 180km motor cycle tour by car starting and ending in Tübingen I mentioned yesterday in a second post.

The Mercedes Benz museum is an absolute must see and the Porsche museum is very good.
Enjoy your time!
