MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

Travel Costs:
Flight: London Stansted > Stuttgart £31.99 (£24.99 Flight + £7.00 Transaction Fee)
booked with germanwings – they have quite good offers if you need to go to stuttgart and book early. nevertheless, it’s probably cheaper with ryan air etc. if you travel to berlin or other german cities. try the flightchecker if travelling from uk or other online tools.

Airport Transfer:  £9 one way saved the return bit from an old ticket, worth to keep it!

+ Stuttgart S-Bahn Tageskarte Netz (Whole Network Day Ticket)  €13.50
