Its urban area has a population of 634,830, making it the sixth largest city in Germany. …
It is spread across a variety of hills (some of them covered in vineyards), valleys (especially around the Neckar river and the Stuttgart basin) and parks.

The first Waldorf school is here.
Schlossgarten and green spaces in the centre make it feel a smaller town than 600,000. The centre pedestrian malls are very walkable.
