Visa and entry restrictions

For entry into Germany, proof of vaccination, proof of convalescence or proof of testing is no longer required. However, persons residing in the People’s Republic of China still need an important reason to enter Germany (due to reciprocity) – this does not apply to German citizens residing in the People’s Republic of China.

Stuttgart, Hohenheim and things to do

Stuttgart, capital of southwest Germany’s Baden-Württemberg state, is known as a manufacturing hub. Mercedes-Benz and Porsche have headquarters and museums here. The city is filled with greenspaces, which wrap around its center. Popular parks include the Schlossgarten, Rosensteinpark and Killesbergpark. Wilhelma, one of the largest zoos and botanical gardens in Europe, is just northeast of Rosenstein Castle.

Hohenheim is one of 18 outer quarters of the city of Stuttgart in the borough of Plieningen that sits on the Filder in central Baden-Württemberg. The quarter was founded in 1782 when Schloss Hohenheim was constructed on the orders of Charles Eugene of Baden-Württemberg. The University of Hohenheim, as the name might imply, is based here and uses much of Schloss Hohenheim for its campus.

A few of the things to go to while in Stuttgart are the Mercedes-Benz and Porsche museums and the Wilhelma Zoologisch-Botanischer Garten or maybe wander through one of the many parks, like the Schlossgarten which threads together the Mittlerer Schlossgarten, with its fine biergarten for summer imbibing, the sculpture-dotted Unterer Schlossgarten, and the Oberer Schlossgarten, home to stately landmarks such as the Staatstheater and the glass-fronted Landtag.
