    Stuttgart is the capital and largest city of the state of Baden-Wurttemberg in southwest Germany. The eighth largest city in Germany, Stuttgart has a population of 600,068 (October 2014) while the greater Stuttgart Metropolitan Region has a population of 5.3 million (2008), being the fourth-biggest in Germany after the Rhine-Ruhr area, Berlin/Brandenburg and Frankfurt/Rhine-Main. The city lies at the centre of a densely populated area, surrounded by a ring of smaller towns. This area called Stuttgart Region has a population of 2.7 million.

    Stuttgart is spread across a variety of hills (many of them vineyards), valleys and parks – unusual for a German city and often a source of surprise to visitors who primarily associate the city with its industrial reputation as the "cradle of the automobile". Stuttgart has the status of Stadtkreis, a type of self-administrating urban county. It is also the seat of the State parliament and State Government of Baden-Württemberg, the Evangelical-Lutheran Church in Wurttemberg as well as one of the two co-seats of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Rottenburg-Stuttgart.

    At the centre of Stuttgart lies its main square, Schlossplatz. As well as being the largest square in Stuttgart, it stands at the crossover point between the city's shopping area, Schlossgarten park which runs down to the river Neckar, Stuttgart's two central castles and major museums and residential areas to the south west. Königstraße, Stuttgart's most important shopping street which runs along the northwestern edge of Schlossplatz, claims to be the longest pedestrianised street in Germany.
