Stuttgart Guide


Stuttgart is a beautiful city, lying in a luscious valley west of the Neckar river. The picturesque Kriegsberg vineyards stand on the northeast banks of the river, and the town itself is a harmonious blend of old palaces, parks, and charismatic cafes. Much of the city can be seen on foot but we do advise those wishing to explore the surrounding countryside to rent a car to travel around this beautiful part of Germany. Book cheap car hire in Stuttgart with us today and gain the freedom to explore at your own leisurely pace.

Explore Stuttgart

The delightful city centre is pedestrian-friendly, with most attractions within walking distance of each other, and the main shopping area closed to traffic. Schlossplatz (main square) will entice you with it's culture, architecture and stylish entertainment. The exquisite Schlossgarten (palace garden) stretches 4km southwest from the Neckar River to the town centre. Inside the park is the fascinating Schloss Rosenstein, the city's Natural History Museum. Enjoy a cold drink at the beer garden in the Lower Garden, a seven-minute walk northeast of the Hauptbahnhof.

Another favourite with tourists is the Wilhelma botanical gardens and zoo, on the northern side of Rosensteinpark, home to rare species like snow leopards and the virtually extinct mountain tapir.

For rest and relaxation there’s the Bad Cannstatt mineral baths, a steamy haven of hot and cold mineral baths, saunas and swimming pools.

The impressive Mercedes Benz Museum exhibits the first car ever built, among hundreds of other automobiles on display. The Porsche Museum also shows off a selection of slick, classic and racing models.

A drive around town will take you to Staatsgalerie, Instrumentum Museum, Stiftskirche, Altes Schloss (old palace), Neues Schloss (new palace), Kunstverein (art gallery) and Bohnenviertel.


By air
The Stuttgart International Airport offers frequent flights on most major international and domestic airlines, with several daily trans-Atlantic flights and many more to European cities. It's conveniently located, just 13km from the city centre. Getting into the city is a comfortable 30-minute train ride.

By train
Hauptbahnhof train station lies north of the main shopping street, and the Tourist Office (i-Punkt) is directly opposite the station. A three-day train pass is great value and includes travel to and from the airport. A regular train service runs between Stuttgart and many regional destinations, and also to several major international cities. 

By bus
The buses into town are cheaper but slower, especially in peak traffic hours. You don't need to show your ticket when you board the bus, but there are large fines if you're caught with no ticket during random inspections.

By car
Stuttgart is home to the Porsche and Mercedes Benz, so driving is an ideal way to get around. The roads are in excellent condition and routes are well-marked. If you rent a car at the airport you can take the Autobahn into the city - there are two major routes. Car rental suppliers with desks at the airport include Hertz, Europcar, Enterprise, Avis and Sixt. For more options on cars and to save time on arrival, please book online in advance of travel.

Bicycles are also an easy way to get around Stuttgart, and can be rented from the Tourist Office.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
