What is it like to live in Stuttgart? Would you recommend it? What is the city like?

Stuttgart is known for its pretzels, cars and ever working people. Since it's in a valley, there are nice views from any direction with perfect spots to chill when it's warm. It is one of the most cultural cities of Germany with many museums and events, so if you're motivated, it won't get bored. Swabians are mostly welcoming and there are many foreigners, yet they're not too open, so at first it might be a little hard to connect. But if you find people with similar interests it should be no problem!

How much does it cost to live in Stuttgart?

The rent can be really pricey, especially if you don't share an apartment. Even though they are working on offering more student accommodations, it seems like the situation is critical. But somehow you always end up lucky!

Is it difficult to find accommodation in Stuttgart? Is there any advice you can give?

It's been getting harder lately from what I heard, but the higher your budget is, the higher the chance is you'll find something.

What is the food like? What are your favourite dishes?

The food is great! Many different offers in every part of the city. One of the most popular and cheapest foods is Turkish (Döner, pide, etc. ) but if you dig hard you can find anything you crave.

What places would you recommend visiting in Stuttgart?

I would definitely recommend the tea house, the view is nice. If you're interested in architecture, go to the Weissenhof Siedlung. West, East and South are nice to explore, North is rather industrial/residential. However, Bad Cannstatt has a lot to offer besides the October Fest, like thermal baths, a nice park, good food, a couple clubs/bars and a mall.


Is it good to eat out in Stuttgart? Can you tell us your favourite spots?

Yes, but some places are popular with limited space, so sometimes reservations are necessary, especially on the weekend. La Signora at Marienplatz has great pizza, Vegi Voodoo King had good falafel and I love QQ Sushi. Reiskorn is nice but pricey and if you want the Swabian experience, go to a Brauhaus.

Is the nightlife good in Stuttgart? Where is good to go?

Theres quite a variety! Depending on your taste of music, you'll definitely find your spot. I would go out and try to find locals on the streets to ask.

What advice would you give future students heading to Stuttgart?

Summer here is 100% more enjoyable than winter, so if you're here during that season don't get a wrong impression and put more effort in finding stuff to do, the cultural offer is still big, yet not as obvious.
