Re: Stuttgart with two young children........Help?
Not far from Stuttgart are the Black Forest and the Swabian Alb. In January there is will be mostlikely snow there. No 100% guarantee however.
Swabian Alb is a bit closer and has castles and even more castle ruins.
Burg Hohenzollern near Hechingen
Schloss Lichtenstein near Bad Urach
(however closed in January)
Schloss Hohenzollern in Sigmaringen
(this is from the interior one of the most interesting castles)
A castle hotel in this area would be Schloss Haigerloch. Also a cute small town.
More budget friendly and a more medieval castle would be the youth hostel Burg Wildenstein. In the Upper Danube valley not far from Sigmaringen. One of the few never destroyed castle. Absolute outstanding location.
In Stuttgart for children
Wilhelma (zoo/botanical garden) - one of the most pupular in Germany
Das LEUZE - nice combination of mineral bath and fun pool. Stuttgart has the 2nd biggest mineral springs in Europe. There is a special Kinderland for kids up to 7 years.
Museums also of interest for kids
Museum Am Löwentor (fossils, dinosaurs - huge local content from Stuttgart and region)
Is there a Sunday among the days you are there?
Because on Sundays in January (past the 6th January) there are normally always some Narrentreffen (gathering of traditional carnival clubs) in this region.
