The city between forests and vineyards...that is how the
locals think of Stuttgart. The many different parks throughout
Stuttgart help make the city one of the greenest in Europe;
The greenest part, the "Green U" in Stuttgart, is
a U-shaped area that streches nearly 8 km (5 miles) from the
Palace Gardens to Killesberg Park.
Stuttgart's parks originate from different periods, making
them part of the city's extensive park and garden history.
Besides offering peaceful settings and recreational opportunities,
each park has a uniqueness of its own.
