About Stuttgart Rosenstein

With an area of some 60 x 117 metres, the “Space for Ideas” is located next to the skylights of the future station. The area is located at the entrance to the planned Stuttgart Rosenstein neighbourhood. Once the new central station is opened, the aboveground track areas will no longer be needed – an opportunity to develop a new neighbourhood in the centre of Stuttgart.
