Stuttgart Christmas Markets

Stuttgart is the largest city and the capital of the German state of Baden-Württemberg, the city now has a modern look because of the destruction during the Second World War, but in its historic center, several buildings were rebuilt after the war as such as they were. The center of Stuttgart is famous for its many parks and gardens and is dominated by the Fernsehturm, a television tower high more than 200 meters. The main square of the old town is the Schlossplatz where you will find the Altes Schloss (Old Castle) in Renaissance style, and the Neues Schloss (New Castle), in the Baroque style. The Christmas Market of Stuttgart is one of the most visited in Germany.
