Today it is a district of Stuttgart, however it was the initial area. Firstly mentioned in the 10th century as “Stutengarten” the old Stuttgart developed here prior to the real settlement expansion set in of the early 19th century caused by the industrialisation.
During the Second World War the historic centre was largely destroyed. Between the 50s and 60s the road network was rebuilt and expanded oriented towards the city-centre.
Although, dismantling of several traffic lanes was initiated for a short period, the city-centre is surrounded by the wide Theodor-Heuss-Straße, the Konrad-Adenauer-Straße and the Hauptstätter Straße.
