in Stuttgart

Palace Square

Stuttgart's Palace Square is the vibrant heart of the city, but at the same time it's a place to linger, within easy walking distance of many of the city's attractions. Palace Square is therefore Stuttgart's hub and an integral part of any stroll through town. In the middle of Palace Square towers the Jubilee Column (1841), surmounted by Condordia, goddess of harmony.
