Last week we found ourselves in quite an unlikely place for an assignment, the city of Stuttgart in the south of Germany. I think we drove through it once a couple of years ago on our way to Milan. But because it was so unknown to us, this time I was even more determined to find some interesting places.
Just before flying back home, we popped into the Kunstmuseum Stuttgart; a lovely small museum inside a beautiful glass venue at the main square in the city. It houses a collection of contemporary art of which a lot is by German Artists, the museum has acquired much of the intense work of Otto Dix and has this displayed as a main focus point.
After the exhibition we went all the way to the top of the glass cube building to enjoy a fantastic, postcard-like view over the city and the mountains. There’s also a restaurant on the top floor which honestly looked a bit too corporate and boring to us. Across the street there was a much more exciting place to find food: the ‘Markthalle'(Dorotheenstrasse 4) an indoor market packed with fresh fruits and vegetables, local and foreign delicacies.
