Best Time to Visit

The best, but also busiest time to visit Stuttgart is during the summer, when the temperatures are most pleasant (generally around 20°C/68°F during the day). During shoulder seasons, namely spring and autumn, various festivals take place and outdoor activities and sightseeing are still possible. Winters can be very cold in Stuttgart, but also quite picturesque due to the snowfall and Christmas Markets.
