It's kind of ugly, 'used to be modern' building, nothing you'd really look for. Compared to other jewels you can see in Stuttgart, this one is not worth a trip. We ended up there mostly by accident, on our way from the castle, expecting similar...More

We didn't explore the Rathaus we only went to ride the elevator that operates on a chain, has no doors, and doesn't stop. You get on and off as it moves. Worth a quick stop in for the experience... where else will you be able...More

The bottom line is, have a reason to go. The Rathaus is not really an attraction, and certainly not the most beautiful building in the city. However, in December the bulk of the Christmas Markets are found in the square just outside of the Rathaus....More

As another reviewer stated, this has to be one of the ugliest town halls in all of Germany!!! If they wanted a modern, functional, affordable structure WHY put it on a historically important square??? Ugly as a descriptor is being kind!!!

Have been a number of times. Interesting exhibit inside but not a must see. Striking building which is even more impressive with either the Saturday market below or during Christmas when the Christmas market is in the platz

Unfortunately the 1905 late gothic city hall that used to be at the same position had been destroyed in the Second World War. Unfortunately the post-war council in Stuttgart decided to not rebuild the old building (as the government in Munich successfully did) but to...More

I have visited dozens upon dozens of German cities and the Rathaus is nearly alway's the centre piece and focal point of the city. Here in Stuttgart the Rathaus is a modern building that in all truth and my opinion is rather bland when compared...More

In most of the German cities the Rathaus plays an important role, where the head of the city carries on the work for the city. Stuttgart is also not an exception. The Rathaus has a lot a of important government offices like foreign immigration etc....More

It's a brutalistic building outside. When we visited each floor had good art exhibits, all accessible from the unique paternoster elevator.
