Beautiful round including through the bean district. According to the description, children from the age of 6 can participate. I would raise the age limit to 12 years. It was too scary for our almost 10 year old son! For us adults it was an informative tour with nice sights. The guide moderated great and traveling with you!

Stuttgart is always worth a trip, but it's nice to get to know the city from a different perspective. Of course, the best way to do this is to take part in a guided tour.

The tour guide explained the history in a very interesting way. She knew the answer to every question. It was very informative and entertaining.

Visited for the second time ;) The wine tasting is great, as is the wine museum itself!

We took the lead with Kunigunde, it was really great. I would recommend to everyone.
