The most exciting photo spots – not just for Instagrammers

Instagrammable Stuttgart

Stuttgart’s Municipal Library, the Royal Burial Chapel on the Württemberg, or the Feuersee lake in the west of the city – Stuttgart never fails to amaze photographers and Instagrammers alike with fascinating motifs.

It’s one of the world’s most exciting libraries and stands out by virtue of its futuristic architecture: the Stadtbibliothek Stuttgart – Stuttgart’s Municipal Library. Its stairways – all in white – almost seem to flow into each other. Visitors to the library simply mustn’t miss taking a look at Stuttgart’s characteristic topography from the roof terrace.
The unparalleled view from the roof terrace of the InfoTurm Stuttgart is also well worth a photo stop. Not only is it ideal for watching the construction site of Stuttgart 21, there's also a magnificent panorama of the surrounding hill slopes that are so characteristic for Stuttgart.
Palace Square (Schlossplatz), right in the heart of the city, is a popular photo motif at any time of year. Tip: from the music pavilion on Königstraße there’s a splendid view of the New Palace and the Jubilee Column. The glass cube of Stuttgart’s Museum of Art (Kunstmuseum) is a particularly spectacular subject by night. 
The Stuttgart State Gallery (Staatsgalerie Stuttgart) scores with its stunning exterior architecture. The colourful pipes in front of the New State Gallery designed by Sir James Stirling are an eye-catcher and a striking splash of colour on any photo.
The Feuersee lake with St. John’s Church in the west of Stuttgart is a highlight all year round. In summer the lake shows itself from its idyllic aspect, in autumn the trees with their bright foliage glow in the sunshine, and in winter the frozen lake with the Neo-Gothic church is transformed into a little winter wonderland.
Beginning immediately behind the Feuersee, there‘s an area with the straight streets that are so typical for the west of the city. The seemingly endless Senefelder- and Johannesstraße, with their late 19th-century Gründerzeit architecture, are especially photogenic.
Thanks to Stuttgart’s unique geographic location – the city centre lies in a valley basin – there are countless scenic lookouts: From Karlshöhe hill, for example, there’s a wonderful view to the south, Eugensplatz lies in the east of the city, and there are perfect panoramic views from the Birkenkopf.
The Stuttgart Television Tower is not only the city’s main landmark; at a height of 150 metres above ground level, its observation platform also affords fantastic panoramas of Stuttgart and the surrounding countryside. As the platform isn’t glassed over, it’s ideally suited for taking photos.
Not far from Stuttgart, the Royal Burial Chapel on the Württemberg is a favourite with photographers. The view from the mausoleum over the surrounding vineyards and the Neckar Valley is highly recommended, especially during the weeks of autumn or at sunset. 

You’ll also find lots of inspiration for great Stuttgart motifs on the Stuttgart-Marketing GmbH’s Instagramm channel: It also has information on the Instawalks, which take place at regular intervals. And if you like, you can post your Stuttgart pictures with the hashtag #enjoystuttgart.
