Then the Stuttgarter Weindorf (Stuttgart Wine Village) is a must.
It is one of the finest wine festivals in Germany with regional specialties and a wide selection of excellent regional wines from Wuerttemberg and Baden.
On the Stuttgarter Marktplatz (in front of city hall), the “Schillerplatz” and in the ”Kirchstraße”(downtown Stuttgart), there will be more than 30 hosts and winemakers presenting over 250 different wines in 125 different booths. And if you have a sweet tooth, you can indulge yourself at one of the confectionary retailers.
In a nice atmosphere, you can enjoy culinary delights and the finest wines. The streets and alleyways are decked out with fall foliage, flowers and lights.
The food is typical food from the Stuttgart area in several varieties (like Maultaschen, Spätzle and Schupfnudeln). Apart from wine, also non-alcoholic drinks are served.
Throughout the festival duration, there will be an interesting variety of programs for young and old.
You can enjoy performances of different bands, groups and choirs. There is also a traditional “grape pressing” with prominent politicians.
Sundays (September 1st & 8th) are family days with face painting, clowns, a mascot parade, wine village rally and lots of other fun activities. You can even win tickets for a hot air balloon ride on the opening day and on September 8th. Also, on September 8th, you will find a lot of information around the most famous German food: bread.
Stuttgart's history has always been closely tied to its vineyards and the wine-growing industry. Pro Stuttgart, organizer of the Weindorf, was founded in 1885 for the good of the city, and the Winedorf was first launched in 1976 to celebrate the tradition of wine-growing.
The Weindorf is open from August 28th until September 8th and is open daily from 11:30a.m. until 11p.m. (Thu-Sat until midnight).
Enjoy the 44th Stuttgart Wine Village and make it an unforgettable experience for the whole family.
