Stuttgart collegiate church


Center of the Protestant Württemberg

The striking towers of Stuttgart’s collegiate church can be seen from afar: a square south tower with a pointed roof and an octagonal west tower with a flat roof. Construction of the oldest and largest church in the state capital began as early as the 10th or 11th century and was not completed until 1240. Over the centuries, Stuttgart’s collegiate church was often rebuilt and expanded. Therefore, different style epochs can be recognized in the imposing sacral building. Today, the Protestant collegiate church in the heart of the city is considered the center of Protestant Württemberg. Since the year 1618, the “Turmbläser” have been at work here. From the west tower of the church they play church songs twice a week.
