Stuttgart is most famous for its automotive industry - both Porsche and Mercedes-Benz have their headquarters in Stuttgart and both have car museums. It is also renowned for its wine. The city center lies in a lush valley, nestling between vineyards and thick woodland close by. Thus, the city is often described as lying "zwischen Wald und Reben", between forest and vines. Despite bombing raids and extensive devastation during the Second World War, Stuttgart is full of architectural gems.
