Stuttgart Karlshöhe

Stuttgart Karlshöhe


Former quarry, today landscape park

Where there was a quarry until the middle of the 19th century, there is now one of the most popular vantage points in the state capital: Stuttgart’s Karlshöhe. In 1864, the site was transformed into a park, which was then christened “Karlshöhe” on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the throne of Württemberg’s King Karl in 1889. The stones from the former quarry were used, among other things, for the construction of the Old Palace and the Ulm Cathedral. The Karlshöhe grounds with their gardens and vineyards were extended for the Federal Garden Show in 1961. The terrace with the former milk bar, which now houses a beer garden, is also particularly popular with visitors.
