Passport / Visa

Passport / Visa

Germany can be visited visa-free for up to 90 days by citizens of most European countries, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia, Israel, UAE and most countries in America. If you are unsure whether or not you need to apply for a visa, we recommend contacting the embassy or consulate in your country. International (non-Schengen) travelers need a passport that is valid for at least 3 months after the end of their intended trip in order to enter the Schengen zone. Citizens of Schengen countries can travel without a passport, but must have a valid ID with them during their stay.

Public Transport

Public Transport

The VVS operates Stuttgart’s public transport system consisting of buses and trains. The city is divided into zones and the more zones you cross when travelling, the more expensive your ticket will be. For short distances, opt for the "Kurzstrecke" ticket, which is valid for three stops. If you are planning a busy day of sightseeing, splurge on a daily ticket, called "Tageskarte". Tickets can be bought from vending machines, bus drivers and sales locations. The tickets are slightly cheaper if you buy them with your cell phone.
