What people are saying about Stuttgart

Young Grandkids joined me in a roundtrip adventure and while I enjoyed the views, they could play UNO and checkers and point out the cool workings of the locks going up and down. The Vineyards looked a little dry but admiring the cliffs and many steps among them was something for us all. Many Bikers joined along the stops for bier, wine or coffee until all the cakes were gone. We had very nice table service for lunch and the Chef was pleased with his compliments. The kids were please that they did not run out of ice cream.

The theme of the exhibition is fascinating and could (if more rooms were available) be expanded, since on average one stays there for only 1 hour. However, the museum is so small that it is difficult to find it despite maps without displays or advertising. The adjoining diverse gastronomy is also provided for the physical well-being. Ergo: recommended for a maximum of 3 hours of free time with all the trimmings!

I was a little concerned when I read previous reviews that I might have a hard time navigating my way to dock. My fears were abated by excellent directions that came with the activity reminder. The boat, the crew, the service, food snd guests were top-notch. I had an excellent roundtrip and would definitely recommend as a fun memory whether or go solo for relaxation, as a couple’s date or in a group for a party.

This museum is state of the art and it has the weirdest illusions.

The museum is not very big, but we all had a lot of fun.
