Germans love a good party, and even more so when great food is involved. This weekend the Schwabengarten is hosting a special party. A party to celebrate all that makes America great and to show some appreciation to our American friends!
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.
The Stuttgart Messe is opening its doors to the Comic fans again. Today and tomorrow (June 29th and 30th) it’s all about comics, movies, cosplay and everything that comes along with the kingdom of nerds. Hang out with cosplayers, chat with you favorite artists or meet some kindred spirits at the huge Lego station. So much to see and to do.
One of Germans favorite past times during the warm summer months has to be visiting medieval markets.
Many of the old city centers are transformed into something from times long past. Cities like Horb offer trips right into the busy hours of a crowded 12th century market, complete with jesters, traders and the many treasures they brought along with them.
The “Gartenschau” garden show in Kaiserslautern is reopening its gates on March 30, 2019. Known as one of the most popular outdoor hang outs in the area, this place is perfect for a family with younger children. The garden show is laid out like a huge park, with flowerbeds, walking trails, several playgrounds for kids (even some water ones), a barefoot trail, several themed gardens, a shop and, of course, the dinosaur trail.
