Discover the city with the Stuttgart Citytour

Stuttgart x 2

The successful Stuttgart Citytour has long since established itself as a tourism flagship and has high symbolic significance in Stuttgart through the three Mercedes-Benz buses. Passengers can get to know the city on two tours with the hop-on/hop-off system. 
The red, open-top Mercedes-Benz double-deckers invite guests to enjoy a city tour with a difference in the birthplace of the automobile. The hop-on/hop-off principle allows you to explore the city at your own pace with the Blue and Green Tours. 
With the Green Tour you take to the hills: since 2017 the red, open-top double-decker buses have been touring the south and west of Stuttgart. There are eight stopping points, the so-called TopStops, on the approximately one-hour circular tour, where you can get off and on as you please. The Television Tower, Stuttgart's main landmark, is now also part of the new Citytour route. The Green Tour is in operation from April to October. 
The Blue Tour (introduced in 2014) lasts around 100 minutes and takes in Stuttgart's most important places of interest – Palace Square, the Mercedes-Benz Museum, the vineyards and the Weissenhof Estate. The Blue Tour circuit has nine TopStops. There are now four buses in all – three on the Blue Tour, one on the Green Tour – driving round Stuttgart.
The idea for the Stuttgart Citytour came from the Stuttgart-Marketing GmbH. It is also responsible for the route, marketing and sales, in cooperation with the organiser, the Stuttgart CityTour company Willms Touristik GmbH & Co. KG.
The departure point and terminus of both tours is the "i-Punkt" Tourist Information, Königstraße 1a (opposite the main railway station). Of particular note is the high entertainment value during the tours, which is provided by sophisticated audio guides in eleven languages (including German, Swabian, English, French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Chinese, Russian, Turkish, Arabic.). Audio drama scenes introduce passengers to the history of the city, and the youngest guests will love the special children's channel. The tour therefore not only gives tourists from Germany and abroad, but also the inhabitants of Stuttgart and the surrounding region the opportunity to get to know the state capital from a completely new angle. There's also an attractive new addition to visiting the tourist highlights in the form of gastronomy options along the route.
The adult 24-hour ticket for the Blue or Green Tour costs 15 euros / 18 euros (winter or summer season). For children aged 4–14 years the price is 5 euros, while children under 4 travel free of charge in the company of an adult. It's even cheaper in combination with the StuttCard discovery ticket – the tour then costs only 12 euros / 14,40 euros, with all museum admission charges included. A combination ticket for both the Blue and Green Tours costs 28 euros (adults; only in summer season), or. 22,40 euros for StuttCard holders. Tickets can be bought 
from the Stuttgart-Marketing GmbH: at the "i-Punkt" Tourist Information, Königstr. 1a, the Tourist Information at Stuttgart Airport, Level 2, Terminal 3, the Customer Service Department under Tel. +49 (0)711/22 28 122, by e-mail at touren@stuttgart-tourist.de, online under www.stuttgart-citytour.de, or on the buses.
