Schlossplatz is the largest square in Stuttgart, Germany and the "New Castle" you see here is the former home to the Duke of Wurttemberg built between 1746 and 1807. To read more about this site, click here.
During the brief jaunt through the Schlossplatz with a friend who lives close to the area, she tells me this building is the local stock exchange. Do you ever wonder why so many people just hanging out during the middle of a workday?
This is a close-up view of the gazebo in the middle of the square. Notice the fancy waiters with the bow ties.
Next to the stock exchange is the postmodern art museum building that stands out amongst classics.
