We checked out of the Westend Hotel in Munich at 10:00 and then walked the 5 blocks to the Central Bus Station to catch the Flixbus to Stuttgart. The trip on the packed bus took about three hours. The Stuttgart stop was at the airport so we took the tram to the city center and then walked to our hotel, Hotel Novum Stuttgart.
The hotel was located right on the main pedestrian street in central Stuttgart so there were plenty of restaurants and shops. We had an early dinner and then took a long walk around the city to see the sights.
