Charmingly situated among vine-clad and wooded hills, Stuttgart stands at a height of nearly 900 ft.
The lower, or south-eastern, part contains both the small group of streets belonging to old Stuttgart, and also the most important part of the new town.
Many of them, however, are of considerable architectural importance and the revival of the Renaissance style is perhaps illustrated nowhere better than in Stuttgart.
The art collections of Stuttgart are numerous and valuable.
Stuttgart is the centre of the publishing trade of south Germany, and it has busy industries in everything connected with the production of books.
