New sun deck in downtown Stuttgart

Hi guys, guess what I found these days? A new sun deck in downtown Stuttgart! More precisely on top of the City Library!

There has always been the roof where you could climb up to and enjoy the view. But lately, they have put up sun beds – very comfy ones by the way… 🙂

Ok, I am not the biggest fan of the cold, metal design – I wouldn’t mind some palm trees and sunshades. And a cocktail bar. And sand. And a pool. But the sun beds and the view are very nice as well 🙂 A good spot to spend your break on a sunny day! And when doing so, don’t miss the cafĂ© LesBar on the 8th floor – one of my favorites as well! 🙂

Let’s hope for some more sunny days this summer! I know I will spend my lunch break up there again when it’s warm enough.

A whole new, modern – and very luxurious – quarter is born

Have you been at the Killesberg lately, where the Messe Stuttgart (Stuttgart Trade Fair) used to be? The scenery has changed a lot since they broke down the old buildings: The quarter “Think K” with lots of extravagant flats has been built. I went there last week during my lunch break with one of my colleagues.

Where the entrance to the exhibition used to be, a green park and modern, white houses awaits you. Walking on the footpath feels like walking in a maze because the green area is a meter higher than the foot path.

Most of the buildings in the background will house luxurious flats soon. At the moment, there is still a lot of construction work going on.

Some of the shops around the main square are open already, and so is a little CafĂ©. And that’s where we spent our lunch break.

The atmosphere is very cosy and I liked the mix of visitors: Rich looking ladies who might have visited their new flat in one of the buildings next to construction workers who spent their break there, too.

Cosy atmosphere

They offer a selection of breakfast specials, sandwiches and sweets. I went for a Croissant, filled with homemade strawberry jam. Yummy! 🙂

I am curious what this new quarter will look like in a few months, when all the construction work is finished.
