City centre to the stadium
The Gottlieb-Daimler Stadium lies to the east of the city centre alongside the River Neckar and right next to the Mercedes works. An elongated park runs from the centre to within a 100 yards of the ground. Road and public transport access is also good.

Stuttgart by air
If you're flying into Germany for a game in Stuttgart, you'll probably use the city's own airport ... or maybe the low-cost airfield a couple of hours away at Karlsruhe / Baden. Either way, this page has all you need to know.

Stuttgart by road
With a location down in the south west of Germany, Stuttgart is a long drive from places like Hamburg, Hanover and Berlin. But the Autobahn network makes the journey even to these venues as fast as it can be, and makes it only a short trip indeed to nearer cities like Frankfurt and Kaiserslautern.
