The passage seamlessly weaves “through the heart of the building” and provides accessibility from the bustling shopping streets of Königstraße, Bolzstraße, and Stephanstraße (Source). Inside this passage, you’ll discover more than just shops; it houses the foyer of the Gloria Cinema, which stands as one of Stuttgart’s largest and most contemporary cinemas.
Nestled between the main train station and the castle, an intelligent biotech filter was ingeniously installed here in September, perched atop a verdant hexagonal base. This groundbreaking installation marks the first DOOH (Digital Out of Home) column designed to cool its surroundings rather than add to their heat, making a significant contribution to the local biodiversity and aligning with Green City Solutions’ mission to “enhance the local urban climate.”
In addition to the integrated and actively ventilated moss modules, the CityBreeze unit boasts a prominent 75-inch LCD screen. In Stuttgart, this screen serves not only our valued customers and tenants but is also managed by climAD and our trusted marketing partner. Hence, the installation in the GLORIA Passage proudly stands as Baden-Württemberg’s inaugural advertising location.
On this screen, you’ll find more than just general information; it provides the latest updates on cinema news because the “downtown cinemas offer top-tier cinematic experiences” (Source).

Here, a piece of history intertwines with modernity: “Following World War II, Eugen Mertz undertook the monumental task of resurrecting the war-ravaged Hotel Marquardt at Schlossplatz. In 1947, he unveiled a multifunctional complex, complete with dining establishments and a cinema, laying the foundation for the downtown cinemas we know today” (Source).
