Solo travel experience

Stayed near the train station and felt safe walking around in the night (10pm or so). Main shopping street is lively even in the evening. Nice Central Park to sit and soak in the view. Try the local dishes like dumplings in soup and roast with potato dumplings.

Stuttgart is a big city with a lot of different cultures. I notice that I have to be more careful next to schloss park at night, but there are also a lot of policies there. The public transport is really ok , I think the people here is open and nice.
