Discover the city with the Stuttgart Citytour

Stuttgart x 3

The successful Stuttgart Citytour has long since established itself as a tourism flagship and has high symbolic significance in Stuttgart with its four Mercedes-Benz buses. Passengers can get to know the city on three different 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. 
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 stops. There are now four buses in all driving round Stuttgart – three on the Blue Tour, one on the Green Tour.
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 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 also part of this Citytour route. The Green Tour is in operation from April to October. 
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 and Swabian). Audio drama scenes introduce passengers to the history of the city, and the youngest guests will love the special children's channel (in German only). 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.

From April 2020 onwards guests can cruise through Stuttgart's wonderful vineyard landscapes with the new Stuttgart Wine Tour. Lasting approximately 35 minutes, the Wine Tour can ideally be combined with the Blue Tour, as it's easy to switch to the electrically-powered bus at the Mercedes-Benz Museum stop. Wine and nature lovers can get on and off as they please at six stopping points to visit various wineries, the Stuttgart Museum of Viniculture or the Royal Burial Chapel on the Württemberg. After completing the Wine Tour they can continue their trip with the Blue Tour – but of course the Wine Tour is also a separate tour in its own right. 
Whereas the Stuttgart Wine Tour is in operation from April to October, the Stuttgart Christmas Tour is an extra seasonal offer of the Stuttgart-Marketing GmbH for one of the nicest times of the year: During this diverting tour with the red, double-decker bus, guests can listen to Christmas tales of Stuttgart and soak up the city's yuletide atmosphere. The circular Christmas Tour starts and ends at the "i-Punkt" Tourist Information and is the perfect way to round off a visit to the Christmas Market and the "Stuttgart Highlights". First launched in Advent 2019, the Stuttgart Christmas Tour will also be in operation the following winter, from 18th November to 23rd December 2020.
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 24-hour 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 28-0, by e-mail at, online under, or on the buses.
