Stuttgart often acclaimed as the place where business meets the future and is “Das neue Herz Europas” (“The new heart of Europe”). While in Stuttgart, I had some time time to explore the busy town centre area, walking, observing, shopping and relishing the ambience. Schlossplatz is the largest square in Stuttgart bisected by Konigstrasse (King’s Street) from North to South. In the warm and hot summer months thats the place to hang around to make the most of the sun. After a short walk through the grounds, watching happy faces rolling on the grass and little feet zipping through on scooters, I was looking for shade (born and bred in a tropical country, I have been spoilt by the sun) and what better than to cool off with a giant sundae generously dosed with Kiwis and ice cream.
