Built between 1914 and 1927, and designed by architects Bonats and Scholer, it is very evocative of the period and one of the most impressive station buildings I have seen. On top of the station is a large tower, which you can scale to see impressive views of the city. The tower itself is a great landmark, and navigation point, especially with its unmistakable and unmissable Mercedes star on the roof. This will likely be the very first building you see in Stuttgart, and it doesn't deserve to be overlooked.

Directions: At the end of Konigstr.
