This library has been built to the best standards. I really liked the railcarts used to deliver the books back to there home. The view from the rooftop over Stuttgart was also pretty great.

We visited more for the architectural aspect. It is a unique building, with the bottom floor not having any books, and the large inner foyer. The book selection seemed really good, including some English books/magazines, and even games and computer software. The first 4 levels...More

Free entry. Literature, movies, study books from each corner of the World in different languages. Perfect place to study or experience a new culture through movies and books.

From the outside it looks like a prison. The central area downstairs is nice, but you have to take the elevator to the 8th floor. Spectacular view!

The outside is cool but not special. But the interior design is just impressing. It is so modern and bright. It is near to the MIlaneo shopping mall and right out of the train station "Stadtbibliothek (Handwerkskammer)". If you are a book lover, don't miss...More

They do have English books in different categories; unfortunately not for sale. However, you will find a log of bookstores in Germany. You can easily find the books you want.
