Located just to the north of Stuttgart’s city centre is the Wilhelma Zoo and Botanical Garden. This is the only zoo in Europe combining a botanical garden and is spread over 74 acres of land. There are thousands of animals and plants to see here, including African apes, Australian marsupials, and reptiles from every corner of the world, but the 19th century architecture at this former palace site also draws much attention.
Visit Reutlingen, a 40-minute drive from Stuttgart centre, to wander down the narrowest street in the world. At just 31cm-50cm wide, Spreuerhofstraße was constructed during the 18th century as part of the reconstruction efforts following a major fire that destroyed most of the area.
