Contemporary art and architecture
The citys gemütlich Swabian image is misleading, as Modernism settled in Stuttgart at an early date. For architectural fans, the Weissenhof Estate is a must, with its specimen Modernist homes. Art lovers will opt for the Staatsgalerie, the Kunstmuseum and Villa Merkel. Young artistic positions are showcased at Galerie Hermes und der Pfau and at Württembergischer Kunstverein.
