Stuttgart Lapidarium


Stone Open Air Museum

The Stuttgart Lapidarium is something very special in the museum landscape of the state capital. Embedded in a historic park, the Lapidarium is an open-air museum that offers exciting insights into Stuttgart’s architectural and cultural history. The city’s history is impressively presented in a kind of “stone picture book”. Hence the name, which comes from the Latin “lapis” (stone) for a collection of stone works and sculptures. The Renaissance garden was laid out in 1905 by Karl Ostertag-Siegle on the model of Italian parks. The Wandelhalle, now the focal point of the Lapidarium, also dates from this period. Here, fragments of Roman antiquities that Ostertag-Siegle acquired during his travels in Italy are displayed on an antiquities wall.
