Stuttgart is the state capital of Baden-Württemberg and the center of a metropolitan region in which 2.5 million people live. It is considered a vibrant economic metropolis and has a global reputation as the cradle of the automobile. The topography is unique: the city center lies in a valley basin surrounded by green hills and vineyards spreading from the Neckar valley to the city center. The Schlossplatz, the heart of the city and a popular meeting place for residents and guests from all over the world, is framed by some of Stuttgart’s main attractions: the New and Old Palace, the Art Museum, the Königsbau, the Kunstgebäude and the Opera House in the Palace Garden. The Stuttgart State Theaters, the John Cranko Ballet School and the many museums and galleries enjoy international renown.
