Germany: Stuttgart

Stuttgart – home to both Mercedes and Porsche – is the manufacturing heart of Germany. Which you wouldn’t say while roaming its huge parks and wide avenues – the city is very open and green with several parks, squares, palaces and monuments in its heart. The main square is the Schlossplatz with massive palaces fronting it and Stella monument in the middle. Tons of people enjoy the green and beautiful summer atmosphere in the park and the restaurants on the other side. The entire city sits in a bowl surrounded by high hills.
