There's one epithet which describes Baden-Württemberg's state capital in a nutshell: multifaceted. A huge range of different influences from the fields of business, architecture and art can be recognised here, so it's hardly surprising that they're also reflected in the city's cultural landscape. World-famous automobile and art museums, Europe's largest tripartite theatre, magnificent palaces and historic architecture – this is the cultural metropolis of Stuttgart.
