The sixth largest city in Germany and home to global brand names like Mercedes-Benz, DaimlerChrysler, Porsche and Bosch.  The most south-westerly of the 12 World Cup venues, the city's Gottlieb Daimler Stadium stands near the River Neckar in the Bad Cannstatt district of the city.

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 rail
Stuttgart has direct rail links to 8 of the other 11 World Cup venues, so getting to and from the city by rail could be a good option.  Full details here.

Stuttgart : City
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.
