Here's a nice little route down near the Neckar River in Stuttgart. You can either add it onto the Schlossgarten route, or just run it by itself.
NOTE: I did this route combining it with a run down the river from Gaisburg, at the big gas tower. I crossed Talstraße bridge and then headed northwest along the north bank of the river, first running next to the Mercedes test track (I waited around, but didn't see any prototypes drive by that evening) and then by the Wasen, the site of Stuttgart's yearly spring beer festival.

From the station, turn northwards and head into the Schlossgarten park. You'll come to the last two little ponds at the east end of the park. Just turn right and head past the last pond and then follow the path as it curves uphill towards Rosenstein Palace, to the left.
There is a nice rose-garden next to the palace. Run past the building, then turn right to begin a counter-clockwise loop around Rosensteinpark. From here, the main path is paved and heads northwest.

When you get towards the north end of the park, the main path curves towards the left, towards another group of modern buildings belonging to the natural sciences museum, and a playground.
Now the path will curve southeast, back towards the Schlossgarten. When you get back near the palace, take a path curving downhill along the right. It will go past the old guardhouses and on down to the ponds again where you started.
