Stuttgart Wilhelmsbau

Stuttgart Wilhelmsbau


Time-honored commercial building

“Architecturally, Stuttgart’s Wilhelmsbau is reminiscent of a Hamburg office building, but the prestigious commercial building stands in the middle of downtown Stuttgart. The Wilhelmsbau was opened in 1909 on the site of the former legion barracks – named after King Wilhelm II of Württemberg. Offices and stores were spread over five floors, as well as the noble “Café Wilhelmsbau” on the first floor. The building was severely damaged during the Second World War. After a first renovation, the “Kaufhaus für Alle (KFA)” was opened on the lower three floors in 1949. In the 1960s and 1990s, Stuttgart’s Wilhelmsbau was again remodeled. Part of the original Art Nouveau facade is still preserved today.
