The southern German city of Stuttgart is a mixture of old and new architecture. I am always drawn to the classic grandeur of the old palaces and official buildings, but the newer buildings of the last decades had a fantastic array of shapes.
I was pleasantly surprised by my short trip to Stuttgart and all the city had to offer. Three days was barely enough time to scratch the surface between work obligations, but I will certainly return someday when I finally plan that journey through the Black Forest that I have been dreaming of since childhood. Until then, Stuttgart.
Last night was the European Football Championship semi-finals, Germany against Italy. I was excited to be in Stuttgart and watched the first half of the match with the crowd gathered in the Biergarten im Schlossgarten Stuttgart. Unfortunately, the outcome was not in Germany’s favor, but the fans were amazingly spirited.
A few scenes from an evening in Stuttgart, where I’m spending the next few days on a work trip. After a morning of traveling and an afternoon of final preparations, I went for an evening walk in search of a bite to eat. It is properly summery here (ahem, Amsterdam) and everyone was outside to enjoy it. I landed in Weinstube Fröhlich for a dinner of Schwäbische Käsespätzle, which is basically delicious and cheesy. And not at all photogenic. More to come!
