Arrival

There is very limited parking available around the TC Weissenhof . According to the arrangement with the city of Stuttgart the residential streets around the tournament sites are blocked. Therefore, it is strongly recommended to take public transportation using the VVS and/or the P&R grounds. Please use this overview: http://www.vvs.de/download/Verbund_Schienennetz_PR.pdf

Additionally, you can get 50% DISCOUNT on your first ride booked and paid via mytaxi: Tap & Move Freely App (Instructions below)

We strongly recommend you to plan your journey:

1. Travelling by Public Transportation (Deutsche Bahn)

Take the railway to Stuttgart Main Train Station (Arnulf-Klett-Platz). From there you can take the Stadtbahn-Sonderlinie “Killesberg” or the Stadtbahnlinie U5 (both in direction Killesberg; takes approx. 5 minutes) and then the bus line 44 to Killesberg (takes approx. 10 minutes). Alternatively just take the bus line 44 from Main Station all the way to Killesberg (approx. 19 minutes). The trains and buses run every 10 minutes.

2. Travelling by VVS railway, subway and buses

The tournament site is only a few minutes walking distance from the Killesberg (park site and the Killesberghöhe) and well–connected to the public transportation network. You can reach the tournament site by:

  • All railway lines from across the region Stuttgart stop at the Main Train station. From there you can easily switch to the “Stadtbahn” or the bus.
  • Take the special subway line Stadtbahn-Sonderlinie “Killesberg“ from Möhringen and the Stadtbahn U5 from Leinfelden via Degerloch, Olgaeck, Charlottenplatz, Schloßplatz, Main Train station, Stadtbibliothek directly to Killesberg – runs every 10 minutes.
  • Take the bus line 44 from Westbahnhof via Stuttgart-West, Charlottenplatz and Main Train Station directly to Killesberg – runs every 10 minutes.
  • Take the bus line 43 from Stuttgart-Feuersee via Charlottenplatz, Wilhelmsbau, Liederhalle, Doggenburg and Kräherwald directly to Killesberg – runs every 10 minutes.
  • Smartphone users can choose their own individual connection with public transportation using the apps „FahrInfo Stuttgart“ or „VVS Mobil“. These apps can be downloaded for free in the app store. More information can be found at: www.vvs.de/aktuelles/veranstaltungen/ and www.ssb-ag.de.

We definitely recommend to use public transportation. Your journey will be much more comfortable and you are more likely to arrive at the MercedesCup on time.

Your MercedesCup ticket is a valid public transportation ticket for both ways, within the VVS-Network.
