My husband and I will be arriving in Stuttgart by train around 6pm and staying for 3 nights at the beginning of June 2014. We fly out of the Stuttgart airport at 11am. We are looking for a clean, centrally located hotel but it doesn't have to be anything fancy.
We plan to visit the Staatsgalerie, the Mercedez-Benz Museum, and the Porsche museum where we have 10am reservations to tour the factory (the main reason we are coming here per my husband's request). We like to walk and explore but I am having a hard time getting my bearings - I miss the Rick Steves city map but unfortunately Stuttgart is not in his Germany book.
