Stuttgart Travel Tip:
Stiftskirche Collegiate Church

Stiftskirche Collegiate Church
The Protestant Stiftskirche (originally built in 1170) pictured around 1900

The history of Stuttgart's Stiftskirche, or Collegiate Church, spans back to the 10th or 11th century. Evidence discovered in the altar area points towards a presence on the site from the early Romanesque period. A Romanesque village church was constructed on the same site in around 1175. The original church continued to evolve, with new extensions added, and other sections demolished and increased in size. A particularly striking feature of the church, and one of Stuttgart's best known landmarks, are its two contrasting towers.
