Rent a camper in Stuttgart now!
The surroundings offer up to 50 RV sites and many smaller campsites, where you can stay with your campervan. They are subdivided into three categories: 1. Comfort – centrally and comprehensively equipped, 2. enjoyment – parking spaces for guests of farmland and vineyards and 3. nature – simple, astonishing and beautiful countryside. So there should be something for everyone. If you have parked your camper at one of these places, you can immediately start exploring the capital of Baden-Württemberg. There are a few things you should discover before you continue on your journey! Rent a camper in Stuttgart!
The best example serves the “Höhenpark Killesberg”. Here you will experience action and relaxation at the same time. The park is really close to the city center. The mountain is a former quarry that has been transformed by gardeners into a magical idyll of flowers, trees and shrubs. The playful water systems even include a flamingo pond. In addition, the “Killesbergbahn” crosses the area – a special highlight for kids. On the mountain there is also a high-altitude outdoor pool, an adventure playground, large enclosures with llamas, goats and many other animals, a fair and the unique “theater in the bathtub”.
If your legs are tired after this visit, there is still a reason to leave the campervan for a bit. Go for a Neckar cruise with the Neckar-Captain Stuttgart and marvel at the vineyards from the water. The pier is just opposite the Wilhelma in Stuttgart-Bad Cannstatt.
roadsurfer tip: Your children will love it! For you it might be a little pain. The Wilhelma Zoo in Stuttgart will please kids and well, some adults. Here there are 8,000 animals and almost 1,000 species – and this in the midst of a former royal garden with the flair of 1001 Nights. The water lilies in the 650-square-meter pond in the Moorish Garden are the largest in the world and can carry a weight of up to 70 kilograms on a single leaf.
If you love Oktoberfest in Munich, you will love “Cannstatter Wasen” as well. The festival offers quite a specific experience and is held annually from mid-September until early October. Sounds familiar? Yes, the Oktoberfest is held simultaneously. As a visitor you can expect colorful parades, plenty of drinks and exciting folk music to dance to.
roadsurfer tip: Even if you do not have a costume: Go! Have fun. Get some drinks and remember in Stuttgart as well: Do not drink and drive!
Hire a campervan Stuttgart, park it somewhere safe and continue by foot – that is how it is done around here. And we advise you too, because you might actually miss some great sights. There are numerous staves – small and winding pinnacles that are spread around town – as an example, which you do not want to miss out on. Once you are on top of the many surrounding hills you will also be rewarded by an amazing view on the city.
Once you are done with that and willing to continue head towards the “Bohnenviertel”. Antique shops, artist studios, cozy cafes and taverns will be waiting for you. You will get a nice insight into Stuttgarts history. The taverns are reminiscent of the vineyards and the meals in the small restaurants at least as good as back in the days.
Exploring Stuttgart with your newly hired VW T6 California is a real pleasure. Wash the city dust off your skin at Max Eyth Lake. Take a bath and relax! Hang on the sandy beach or grab your skates and drive around the lake. If you are up for some pedaling on the water, there are boats available. Around the corner lies a bird sanctuary, which is a great past time as well.
If you continue further you will get to the “Urach” waterfall. It is said to be the most beautiful waterfall in the area. It is around 37 meters of height and so clear that you can drink from it. On the meadow right next to it, there is a hut that provides visitors with regional products and some refreshing drinks.
If you have been to the Zoo and you are still not full of all the animals visit “Althütte”. There will be Alpacas waiting for you to feed them and have fun around the farm. For a few pennies you can take walks with them and even a short ride is in for the money.
roadsurfer Tip: You have seen enough? You do not feel like viewing anymore animals and being in the countryside? What about a flight simulator? Get out of your campervan and hop onto a plane! You can take a seat next to the pilot and become the co-pilot. Sit down in your own, at least for a few moments, Boeing 737. Enjoy your flight!
Many castles and palaces are awaiting you up there in the Swabian Albs. For example “Schloss Hohenneuffen”. It is the largest of its kind in the are and stands out on the 743 meter high rock of “Hohenneuffen from Albtrauf”. The castle served as the palace of the Lords of Neuffeen until it was passed on in 1301 and went to the family of Württemberg.
Another castle, Teck Owen, rises on a 774 meter massif. It was probably built around the mid-12th century on the “Zeugenberg”. This was the first castle built by the royal “Zähringer” family.
Yet another castle is “Hohenstaufen”. It has been the home to the “Staufer” family for centuries. Unfortunately, it was destroyed in the Peasents War in 1525. The remains were uncovered decades after its destruction and only the foundation can be admired nowadays.
