Where to buy a Christmas tree in Stuttgart
or do you want to cut it yourself?
Question is not only where to buy a tree, but for some also the question: where does it come from?
Easiest is to go to a DIW or garden center a so called „Baumarkt“, such as Obi, Hornbach, Toom, Bauhaus and alike.
In these centres you will also find a tree-stand.
Watch out for the big signs along the road, which usually say “Weihnachtsbaumverkauf” or "Christbaumverkauf" and the starting date. I have attached some photos.
Also local fire stations (Feuerwehr) do sell Christmas trees for a good cause and donate the money to a local charity – also watch our for posters/signs.
Alternatively and to know where your tree comes from, you can cut the tree yourself or have it cut for you.
Here are some places around Stuttgart where to buy trees and cut them, too . All are locally produced trees on special plantations.
Webpages are only in German – but quite ok to figure it out.
Locally produced Christmas trees. Please see their stalls in the link. Also usually on the 3rdand 4thAdvent (Aktionstage) you can go there and cut your own tree near Möglingen. In 2018 this is on the 2ndand 3rdAdvent though.
Locally produced Christmas trees. You can buy them at one of their many stalls in differnt places (see link) or cut one yourself in Sillenbuch, Möhringen or Korntal Münchingen. You need to contact them directly for more information on the latter or talk to them at one of their stalls.
If you bring your tree stand, they will help you to adjust the tree perfectly.
Uhlandshof in Hattenhofen close to Göppingen
Locally produced Christmas trees – you can buy them at the farm or cut them yourself (bring you own saw!)
Mittelmühle in Adelberg
If you do not mind a little drive and want to combine buying your Christmas tree with a little trip/event you could buy a locally and sustainable produced tree at Adelberg inbetween Göppingen und Schondorf. They offer a Christmas exhibition, Glühwein and Christmas feeling and of course you can go for a walk/hike there, too.
Locally produced Christmas trees in Bondorf every day (also Sundays!) from 9 am to 7 pm.
At the weekends you can also cut the tree yourself! This year 8/9thand 15/16thof December from 10 am to 4 pm.
If you have any other suggestions, please let us know
Last question – how do I get rid of the tree after Christmas?
All around Stuttgart there are collection areas for Christmas trees. Usually you can see them when you drive around in your area.
Or you go to https://www.stuttgart.de/abfall and type Christbaum in the search, then click on Entsorgung (disposal) and you can find a list of the disposal places.
