What is typical of Stuttgart? Cars: most people say Mercedes and Porsche, and wine, which is of course true. Stuttgart is renowned for its cars and its wine. After some thought, someone is bound to mention all the city's parks, from which Stuttgart has gained its reputation as the "city between forest and vineyards". Some may wish to add, perhaps from their own (painful?) experience: the "Stäffele"! The need for these flights of steps, which are known as "Stäffele", arises owing to Stuttgart's valley location: they make all the ups and downs easier for pedestrians.
Although Stuttgart is not on the waterfront, it certainly lies "on" the water!! It boasts the largest mineral water deposits in Europe after Budapest, as witnessed by the fact that there are well over 250 springs within the urban area.
