Stuttgart-Marketing GmbH introduces second Citytour Route

Stuttgart x 2

The STUTTGART Citytour now has a second route: at the beginning of April the Stuttgart-Marketing GmbH launched the "Green Tour". The new Citytour route covers the south and west of Stuttgart and its stops include the Stuttgart Television Tower.

Up to the heights: Since 1st April the red, open-top, double-decker buses have also been operating on the "Green Tour". During the approximately one-hour round trip, the Mercedes-Benz buses access eight stopping points in the south and west of Stuttgart, the so-called TopStops, where passengers can get on and off as they please. The Stuttgart Television Tower – Stuttgart's landmark – is now also part of the new Citytour route. The "Green Tour" is in operation from April to October.

As in the case of the "Blue Tour", which has been in existence since 2014, the Stuttgart-Marketing GmbH is the initiator of the new STUTTGART Citytour. It is responsible both for devising the route and for marketing and sales. The Citytour enjoys tremendous acceptance and utilisation: since the start of the Tour in the year 2014 some 153,000 guests from Germany and abroad have taken advantage of the offer.

As in the past, Stuttgart-Marketing's partner is Willms Touristik GmbH & Co. KG with its Stuttgart CityTour programme. The two of them are a long-standing team – after all, they have been cooperating since the start of the very first STUTTGART Citytour. From the beginning of April, therefore, four buses will be on the road – three on the Blue, one on the Green Tour – in Stuttgart.

The departure and arrival point of the "Green Tour" is the "i-Punkt" Tourist Information, Königstraße 1a (opposite the main railway station). From there the bus goes through Palace Square and up to the Television Tower. It then continues to the TopStops Degerloch / Zacke (rack railway), Standseilbahn (funicular railway) and Marienplatz, before passing through the west of Stuttgart – where the Citytour stops on Karlshöhe and at the Linden Museum / Hoppenlaufriedhof (cemetery) – before heading back to its starting point. Audio drama episodes give passengers insights into the history of Baden-Württemberg's state capital and its unique attractions, such as its stairways, the "Zacke" rack railway or the funicular railway. In addition to German, Swabian and a children's channel, the audio guide is also available in nine other languages.

The 24-hour adult ticket for the "Green Tour" costs 14 euro. Two children (up to 14 years) travel free of charge when accompanied by an adult; each additional child costs 10 euro. There are reductions for StuttCard holders – in this case the ticket costs only 12 euro, and there is free admission to all the attractions. The combination ticket for the Blue and Green Tours (available only from April to October) is obtainable for 25 euro (adults) or 20 euro (for StuttCard holders). Two children aged up to 14 years are free; for each additional child the combination ticket costs 17 euro. Tickets can be purchased from the Stuttgart-Marketing GmbH: at the "i-Punkt" Tourist Information, Königstraße 1a, at the Tourist Information at Stuttgart Airport (Level 2, Terminal 3), from the customer service department under Telephone +49 (0)711/22 28 122, by E-mail at touren@stuttgart-tourist.de or on the internet under www.stuttgart-citytour.de.
