Stuttgart is Germany's sixth largest city, situated at the heart of a heavily populated part of the country. The city is spread across a series of hills and valleys.

The city itself is home to a light rail system called the Stuttgart Stadtbahn. This is supported by a bus system and suburban train network out of the city centre. 

Stuttgart is connected to the rest of the German rail network through its main rail hub at Stuttgart Hauptbahnhof. The station has two levels, with longer-distance and international services on the upper level, and local services beneath.

How to get to Stuttgart from
Route 1:

The service between Paris and Munich (with some services terminating in Stuttgart) is operated on the high-speed TGV line, with a total journey time of less than four hours to Stuttgart, and less than six hours to Munich. Much of the TGV service has been recently redecorated/rejuvinated to provide comfortable and clean interiors for your journey.

It is also possible to reach Munich via Cologne, or on the City Night Line service, which also calls at Stuttgart.

Route 2:

There is one overnight service between Paris and Munich, onboard the City Night Line service 'Cassiopeia'. By taking the sleeper train, you can reach your destination fresh and ready for the day ahead, whilst also saving on the price of a hotel.

Route 3:

The key cities of Amsterdam, Munich and Innsbruck are connected by an overnight City Night Line (CNL) sleeper service known as 'Pollux', that also travels via Cologne, Frankfurt and Stuttgart.

The same journey can be made during the day if so desired, although requires a change of train at Frankfurt.

Route 4:

Travelling to/from Amsterdam and Cologne, there is a connecting InterCity Express (ICE) train between Frankfurt and Munich, via Stuttgart. There are five direct services daily in each direction. There is also a City Night Line sleeper service between Amsterdam and Munich if you would prefer to travel overnight.
