    International Relocation to Stuttgart with Sunset Moving

    Have you always wondered what it is like to live in the South of Germany, surrounded by exquisite architecture, breathtaking parks, numerous museums, great libraries, and many other landmarks? If so, Sunset Moving is here to make that dream come true. If you are still unsure about where exactly in Germany to move to, let us make a suggestion – Stuttgart. The city is quite popular among expatriates, so there must be something to it.

    However, before you relocate here, it is important to get acquainted with the city you are about to start calling home. For that purpose, we at Sunset Moving have put together a quick guide to Stuttgart that will make your relocation fun and easy.

    The Climate

    The city of Stuttgart belongs to the oceanic climate zone. If you have ever been to Great Britain or to the north of France, you know exactly what that looks like. The summers are pleasant, with average temperatures revolving around 70 degrees. The winters are mild, with daily averages rarely dropping below 32 degrees. The precipitation is quite evenly distributed throughout the year, with around 35 inches of rain annually. If you are moving to Stuttgart from, let’s say, Los Angeles, you might find the weather a little cold at first, but you should be able to get used to it quickly.

    The People

    The city of Stuttgart is home to over half a million residents. More than half of them are not originally from this part of the country, or from Germany at all. The low unemployment rates have been attracting young people from all over Germany and Europe to Stuttgart. Around 40 per cent of the city’s residents are of foreign background, most of them coming from Turkey, Greece, Italy, and ex-Yugoslavian countries.

    Around one third of the population are Protestants, while some 27 per cent are Roman Catholics. The rest are Muslims, Jews, Orthodox Christians, and people of other religions or no religious affiliation.

    The official language in the country is German, but a considerable portion of Stuttgart’s residents speak other languages as well, including English, Italian, Turkish, Greek, Serbian, and other.

    Places to Live

    Stuttgart is the largest city of the state of Baden-Wurttemberg. It is divided in five neighborhoods in the inner city, and eighteen neighborhoods in the outer areas. Before you pick the right neighborhood for you, we suggest visiting them in person, as that it the best way of experiencing what they really are like. If you have already done that, we at Sunset Moving would like to refresh your memory with the following list of Stuttgart’s neighborhoods we deemed most livable:

    • Stuttgart-Mitte. As the name itself suggests, this neighborhood is located right in the middle of the city. It is swarming with stores, shops, restaurants, nightclubs, office buildings, art galleries, and other attractions. If you are looking for a place where everything is just a short walk away, this is the neighborhood for you. It is also home to several parks perfect for outdoor activities.
    • Stuttgart-West. Just west of Stuttgart-Mitte, this is a densely populated neighborhood with numerous amenities, such as shops, parks, restaurants, cafes, and theaters. However, this neighborhood is not exactly car-friendly, as its streets are always packed with vehicles.
    • Degerloch. If you are looking for a quiet place hidden from tourists and party-goers, this is the neighborhood for you. With plenty of spaces for children to play, it is quite family oriented. The houses here are quite large, and the traffic is low. In addition, it is well-connected to the rest of the city with public transit.
    • Bad Cannstatt. Located just minutes away from the inner city, this neighborhood is perfect for those with limited budget. However, due to its numerous attractions, this neighborhood is swarming with tourists and is often quite loud.

    Moving to Stuttgart, Germany

    Before you start packing your moving boxes, it is important to obtain as much information as possible on Germany’s immigration policies. This will help you avoid any future problems or complications. As of 2005, Germany is officially an “immigration country”. While the internet is flooded with websites containing information about the process of becoming a resident of Germany, the only truly reliable source of information is the country’s embassy. For this reason, we encourage you to visit the official website of the embassy of Germany in Washington D.C.
