Built in the early 12th century it was destroyed in 1944 during World War II. It was rebuilt in 1958. Lots of stain glass windows and much of the construction used original stone. Was a Catholic Church but changed to Evangelical. There is an admission charge to help with continued renovation. Very active church in the community

We did not actually go inside the church but walked by and enjoyed the view and the small peaceful square that it is located in. Worth passing by.

A mix of Ancient modern historical church, charming character. medieval outer architecture, apparently damaged a lot in WW11 and subsequently rebuilt portion is the modern part, very contrasting and pleasant feel, beautiful stained glass.

This is a beautiful looking church that has been rebuilt to resemble a medieval church that was originally built here! Apparently one of the few historical churches.

Arguably the most beautiful church in Stuttgart. Located on the most beautiful square in Stuttgart it is one of the architectorial icons of a city that is poor of architectorial beauty. Especailly the two completely differently designed towers make it interesting. The church was havily destroyed in WW2 and rebuilt in a simplified, but still beautiful way, using some of... More

This is one of the few ancient and historical churches in the City of Stuttgart. At first glimpse, Tourist and visitors will be able to easily distinguish between the historical Portion of the church and the other renovated modern Portion of the church. And this is where you come to know about the extent of damge the church suffered during... More

I have visited the Stiftskirche since 1950, it's an institution located in the City to seek refuge from the hassle of daily life. A beautiful Church. There is a prayer room where you can sit in silence say your prayer remember your loved ones light a Candle in keep their spirit alive. Than at 12:15 PM and also at 5:5... More
