I used to live in Germany, but I never made it down south, so this was my first visit to Stuttgart.
The Hauptbahnhof is huge, but there were'nt that many people around.
Out on the streets though it was a wonderful warm sunny spring day so the crowds were out.
Lots of old baroque buildings with statues of famous people looking down.
I was really taken with the big, steep rooves with their dormer windows.
The Sclosskirche (Castle Church) was only open to visitors for a few hours a week and I happened by at an opportune moment so could enjoy the deliciously decorative baroque interior.
In the afternoon I met up with a friend and enjoyed a few beers sitting outside the new Art Museum.
Then it was time to wander over to the Liederhalle (concert hall), continuing to snap pictures as I went.
The main reason for my visit to Stuttgart was to hook up with some old friends who were on the last leg of their European Tour.
