On 25 May 2015, VfB Stuttgart announced in a press conference that Zorniger will be their new head coach and signed a deal with the Swabians until Summer 2018. He was sacked on 24 November 2015 after Stuttgart lost to FC Augsburg 4–0. He finished with a record of five wins, one draw, and nine losses.

Brøndby IF

On 17 May 2016, Danish Superliga club Brøndby IF announced the hiring of Alexander Zorniger as their new head coach. He signed a two-year deal. On 30 June, Zorniger made his official debut, beating Icelandic side Valur 4–1 away in the first round of the Europa League qualification. One week later, Brøndby won the return leg 6–0 at home. On 17 July, Zorniger made his Superliga debut with a secure 4–0 win at home against Esbjerg fB. On 4 August, Zorniger surprisingly managed to guide Brøndby past his fellow countrymen Hertha BSC in the third round of the Europa League qualification, going through 3–2 on aggregate after a 0–1 loss in Berlin one week earlier. Hertha were one of the sides that beat Zorniger's Stuttgart during his stint at the club in 2015. On 21 August, Brøndby beat AGF 7–0 at Ceres Park, thereby handing the opponents their biggest defeat in the club's Superliga history. Late in the same month, following a 1–1 draw at home against arch-rivals FC Copenhagen, Brøndby went into the national team break leading the Superliga by goal difference, tying FC Copenhagen and AaB on points. On 18 September, Zorniger lost his first Superliga game in charge of Brøndby, surprisingly being beat 2–1 at home against Viborg FF.
