Stuttgart is aware of the problem and has been taken steps towards better air quality. That means less noise, less congestion, less stress and above all less pollutants in the air.

In 2018, the legal particulate matter limit values ​​were observed at all measuring stations in the city for the very first time. In the year 2018, the State Institute for the Environment Baden-Wuerttemberg (LUBW) recorded 20 exceeded days at the measuring point "Am Neckartor". Allowed, by law, are 35 days of over 50 micrograms per cubic meter of air per year. In 2017, the values were exceeded on 41 days.
