Fun Fact Friday #5: The one with the cinema

Where the Metropol cinema is located today used to be the first train station of Stuttgart.

Have you ever stood in front of Metropol Cinema at Bolzstraße, admired the opulent entrance and wondered why a cinema looks that way? Well, let me explain…

Where the Metropol Cinema is located today used to be the first central train station of Stuttgart. King Wilhelm I wanted the station to be in the center of Stuttgart and so the location close to the New Castle was chosen. When it was opened in 1846 it operated four tracks and you could catch a train to Ludwigsburg and Esslingen from here. However, the station grew too small quickly and all that is left of it today are the pillars and the semicircular arches that marks the entrance to the cinema.
