  • Is there a place to wait overnight at Stuttgart train station?

    by Isabellenecessary Online Now Jun 17, 2016 at 6:18 AM

    I am travelling from Slovenia to France in August by train and I have just booked a train from Lesce-Bled which arrives in Stuttgart at 1.16am. I am getting a train from Stuttgart to Paris at 6.50am so it's a bit of a wait. I really don't want to have to book a hostel if possible so was wondering if anyone knows if there's a waiting room or anywhere I can go so I don't have to sit out on the street!

  • Stuttgart Oktoberfest - Do we need to reserve a table?

    by SonjaD Online Now Jun 14, 2016 at 11:00 AM

    A bunch of us are going to Stuttgart Oktoberfest this year and I'm in need of some guidance please!
    I've read that we need to book a table. Is that true? Cant we just go early, lay claim to a spot and stay there like you do at Munich's Oktoberfest? I don't mind having to reserve a table if the money can be put towards food or beer (does it?), otherwise 40-60 euro a head is quite expensive.
    Also I've read some old reviews saying we need to by food tickets if we wanna eat anything outside of junk food. Is that right and how does that work?
    Any feedback would be most appreciated!! Thanks in advance. Sonja

  • Frankfurt to Stuttgart

    by Hendrix_1900 Online Now Nov 21, 2015 at 11:11 PM

    I am traveling to Stuttgart from Delhi. I am planning to take a direct flight from Delhi to Frankfurt and take a train from there to Stuttgart. It seems like I can catch a train from the Frankfurt Airport Station to Stuttgart HBF (DB Bahn, 20 EUR.) I am writing this to ask if it is as easy as it sounds or is there anything I need to keep in mind (For E.g: I will have some baggage - Around 30 Kgs so it wont be great idea if involves a lot of walking/taking pubic transport/if there is a baggage restriction on the trains)

  • Getting from aeroplane to ICE train, how long should I allow for?

    by globalmaestro Online Now May 30, 2015 at 12:03 AM

    Greetings all! I will arrive by plane to Stuttgart Airport (from Italy on Air Berlin), landing at 3pm. I plan to catch an S2 / S3 to Stuttgart Hbf, then catch an ICE train to Frankfurt Hbf.

    Should I reserve an ICE train ticket in advance to get the best price? If so, plane lands at 3pm, what departure time should I reserve my ICE train? Perhaps 7pm ICE train? (4 hours from landing to boarding ICE?) I wish to allow for any unforeseen plane / customs delays etc. I don't wish to rush too much!

    Thanks for any advice!

    From Stuttgart to Nufringen & Day hikes

    by Advnt Online Now May 12, 2014 at 10:12 AM

    Hi all,

    I have a couple questions regarding transport and hikes.

    1) I'll be landing in Stuttgart around 11am on Saturday July 19, then will need to get to Nufringen. Where can I get information on train schedules and prices? Should I purchase them ahead of time or buy them when I arrive? How long is the train ride? Do they have return tickets since I will need to return to Stuttgart to fly out?

    2) I'll be staying in Nufringen for one week and would like to do some day hikes while I'm there. Is the Black Forrest close enough for hikes, or should I just do hikes in the Nufringen area? Are there any recommended hikes I should do that's easily accessible by public transport? I'm happy doing up to about 20kms a day so any information on hikes up to that distance would be great.
