How to Find the Best Stuttgart Hotels with Venere

Visiting the city of Stuttgart will transport the globetrotter back through the centuries. Stuttgart, which is located about an hour from the Black Forest region of Germany, originally started in the Tenth Century as a Roman outpost. The main purpose of this area was for the Romans to breed horses, and interestingly enough the name "Stuttgart" comes from the Old German language, "stuotengarten", meaning "studyard". It was most likely established by Duke Liudolf, one of the sons of Otto the Great. If you are looking to visit the historic city of Stuttgart, then you need to know about the fantastic hotel website Venere.

What's Stuttgart Like?

Stuttgart is a city with an immense amount of history, but it also features a lot of hip style as well. If you enjoy shopping then Stuttgart is your town. The Koenigstrasse ("King's Street") is the main shopping district for the city and it features many trendy chain stores. Koenigstrasse is a great place to go walking, or just window-shop. The Palace of Solitude is a castle on the outskirts of town that was built by a royal official in the mid-1700's, in an elegant style with rococo pillars. The castle is open daily until either four or five depending upon the time of year and currently houses modern art from many local artists. Visitors also enjoy touring the Wihelma Botanical Gardens, which were built for King Wilhelm I of Württemberg during the mid-19th century, originally used as a residence. After the moorish architecture of the park sustained heavy damage during World War II, the emphasis of the park was changed. Instead of being a private residence, the populace decided to turn it into a zoo, which is now popular with locals and tourists alike.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Stuttgart

Although Stuttgart has a good public transportation system, it can seem confusing at first. To begin with, trains do not seem to follow a set schedule and direction. Thus, it is unwise for the traveler to think that if they miss one train they can simply wait for another. As noted previously, the shopping on Koenigstrasse is very popular with both locals and visitors, but do bear a few things in mind. First, be aware that the shops close early on Saturdays and do not open on Sunday. Naturally, you should expect there to be large crowds of people for you to contend with should you decide to spend an afternoon shopping there. Second, because of the large crowds, do be patient if you are looking to try on some clothes. Finally, consider that in many countries there are various dialects of the language being used. Because Stuttgart is in the Schwabian area of Germany, their dialect is a bit different than the regular German. They have a tendency to add the "Schw" sound to various German words. Most of the people in this area do know English but they would appreciate it if you at least attempted some German.
