After a reconstruction in the 16th century, the building shines in a new light as a city palace.

With a 360-degree app you can easily find out the many sights of the city. Afterwards, the Panorama Café invites you to take a break.4. Try the traditional Stuttgart stew

On top there are also onions roasted in butter and chopped parsley. The recipe was invented by an officer cadet from the 19th century, which is why the dish was nicknamed Marsch.5.
