The Stuttgart–Ulm rail project moves people


The end results will be a new central station, two new districts in the capital of Baden-Württemberg and 120 kilometres of new track. Every fascinating aspect of the traffic and urban design project is presented at the exhibition in the historic Stuttgart station tower. For those in a hurry looking for a quick overview, level 3 shows the key data and the basic information about the Stuttgart–Ulm rail project.

Level 5 shows the routes the regional and long-distance trains will take in the future with the new infrastructure and what this means for passengers travelling around or through Baden-Württemberg. On level 6 a large three-dimensional model gives a realistic impression of the multi-award winning design of the new Stuttgart central station. Using technology, even more is possible: a walk through the modern station and the redesigned original building by Paul Bonatz. Level 7 shows how the Europaviertel and Rosenstein districts complete the existing city centre, how after a-round 100 years the railway is freeing up space in Stuttgart‘s park areas for everyone. When he planned the station, the architect Paul Bonatz already had in mind a concept for sophisticated dining in the station‘s tower.

The bar carrying his name on level 8 is both a restaurant and a cafe. At a height of around 50 metres above the ground, the conference room on level 9 creates the framework for meetings with your clients as well as conferences and talks, set against the impressive scenery of Stuttgart city centre. In collaboration with the Stuttgart registry office, the Turmforum offers couples the possibility to get married above the rooftops of Stuttgart. At 56 metres up, the panorama level 10 offers amazing 360-degree views over Stuttgart. Guided tours through the exhibition offer an extensive overview of the Stuttgart–Ulm rail project.

Further on at the construction site visitors can take a tour around the station, during which they will witness man and machine hard at work on the latest stage of the construction.
