I found this short hike pleasant and worth the time. I was disappointed that it is so over grown and saddened to find litter and graffiti. I imagine 'the powers that be' are content with letting the history be taken back by nature.

Wasn’t really sure what to expect when we reached the parking lot at the bottom of the hill. We had already driven up substantially from the city center. We encountered a beautiful 15 minute, or so, hike through the woods on well maintained, wide, and...More

A wonderful and inspiring place to visit. It can be accessed by car, or bus, and is a short walk. I won't spoil the story, but it leaves you inspired in the human race. It's free and has a great view of th city.

Well worth the drive. Parking lot was a little confusing. Breath taking when you think about what you are looking at.

"Mote Scherbelino" is a mountain in Stuttgart that was made out of ruins of the 2nd world war. It's sad to see all the beautiful pieces of buidings and makes you think what Stuttgart could look like if everything was still intact. After walking about...More

Huge blocks of building debris deposited to add 40m to the top of nearby hill, a stark reminder of the WWII bombing devastation in Stuttgart. Easy 15-20 min walk and suitable for children, bikes, skateboards, etc. Great 360 view and well worth the trip. Parking...More

I found it while doing research before our trip to Stuttgart to visit friends we have there. It's a bit of a walk up to the top but so worth it. Our friends who are locals, didn't even know about it. They did enjoy it...More

Having missed the bus to rubble hill form Marienplatz, had to walk to rubble hill all across the forest path. A nice view of Stuttgart from the hill top and the remaining from the war made the day more purposefully spent.

Most people see a pile of bricks. I saw a graveyard. People dont understand that entire mountain was houses and businesses 70 years ago. Innocent people died in the rubble. Alot of Americans only see the cost that was inflicted on allied nations. This is...More

Nice hike to the top. Great view of the city but most importantly the debris left over from allied bombers. The entire place is made from the ruins left by allied bombers.

Hey buddy. Take the U9 toward Botnang from the HBF and hop off at Lindpaintner Str. Behind the station on the opposite side that the street is on, there's a stairway through the trees. That will take you straight up to... More

No. That address will take you downtown Stuttgart near the Schlossplatz. If coming from Vaihingen or the A8, take the B14. Drive straight until you get to the corner of Rotenwaldstraße and Geißeichstraße. You'll see a... More

It's at the corner of Geiseichstrasse and Rottenwalstrasse. There is a small parking lot. You cross the Geiseichstasse and begin a windy/paved route uphill.
