Stuttgart by night

The sixth-largest city in Germany, Stuttgart is the capital of the state Baden-Württemberg.

It is “the cradle of the automobile”.
The automobile and motorcycle were invented in Stuttgart (by Karl Benz and subsequently industrialised in 1887 by Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach at the Daimler Motoren Gesellschaft).
Mercedes-Benz, Porsche and Maybach are all produced in Stuttgart and nearby towns. The very first prototypes of the VW Beetle were manufactured in this city based on a design by Ferdinand Porsche.
Headquarters of Mercedes-Benz and Porsche are located in Stuttgart.
