Class trip to Stuttgart

Being one of Germany's automotive super hubs, Stuttgart has grown into an ever more popular destination for our guests. It is the best place for all engineering affiliates as the region offers Porsche, Mercedes, Hockenheimring race course or Technik Museum in nearby Speyer. To counterbalance all those action-packed activities, you may always opt for trips to ancient castles and ramble through beautifully restored, medieval town centres of Baden-Würtemberg. In particular, we can recommend trips to Heidelberg, Karlsruhe or Tübingen.

Besides, one of the town's youngest district, the so-called "French Quarter" recently received the German urban planning award.

Every year from May until September you also have the opportunity to go punting on the Neckar river. These typical Tübingen boat trips start at Hölderlin Tower.
