The Sunshine Pumpkin Farm

The Sunshine Pumpkin Farm is located in Gerhardsbrunn, a short 20 minute drive from Ramstein Air Base. Every year Familie Guhl opens up their pumpkin patch to families in the KMC area! Their fantastic pumpkin patch is so much fun; it's the perfect place to pick your pumpkins and get ready for Halloween. I've been going here the last two years, picking out my own pumpkins, and enjoying Familie Guhl's farm treats.

Cannstatter VolksfestThe Stuttgarter or more specifically Canstatter Volksfest is one of the largest beer festivals, second only to the Oktoberfest in Munich. Even the Stuttgart natives don’t say they are going “to the festival” (auf´s Volksfest) but instead say they are going “auf den Wasen.” The Cannstatter Wasen is the area between Mercedesstraße, the Neckar River, the Gaisburger Neckar Bridge and the King Karl’s Bridge. Already two to three months before the festival, the large beer tents begin their set-up. There are more than 300 vendors total, and taking the vendors’ suppliers into consideration, more than 17,000 people are there to guarantee the approximately four million visitors a once-in-a-lifetime festival experience. More than 20,000 Volksfest club members (former German emigrants and their families from New York, Philadelphia and Chicago, but also former Soldiers that were stationed in Stuttgart or in the surrounding areas) regularly visit the Cannstatter Volksfest in order to renew and strengthen the ties with their friends in the area.

The Schwabengarten in Leinfelden-EchterdingenThe Schwabengarten in Leinfelden-Echterdingen is the biggest beer garden in the Stuttgart area. With its open-air atmosphere, fast and friendly service, food that is made-to-order, always fresh, fast and friendly—and with plenty of drinks, deserts and German goodies made available to you…what more could you want?

Maybe, a dog friendly beer garden? That has various doggy water stations throughout the beer garden? Check.

Lots of secure space to park your car or your bike? Check.

Maybe an indoor seating area as well if the weather isn't as nice? Check: The “Alm” has over 200 indoor seating spaces and an adorably eclectic Bavarian charm.

Maybe, you'd like to save 19% off your next meal? Check.

The Schwabengarten was one of the first locations to accept the Together card, a pre-paid meal card that works with the VAT form saving you 19 percent off of every snack, drink, or meal that you have at the Schwabengarten.

Also, no need to clear the table after you're done—they'll gladly do that for you.

Okay, I get what you’re saying, maybe you don't feel like sitting down and having a meal, maybe you're really just in the mood for some great take-out? No problem, the Schwabengarten now offers you food to go in eco-friendly, take-away boxes so you can enjoy your meal at home.

Throughout the year the Schwabengarten will also host various live bands and public events—their number one goal: to make sure that you have a great time, and a great meal, no matter the day or occasion.  So go and enjoy a delicious beer, have some schnitzel or a “Ries'n Hax'n”, a pretzel, some ice cream, French fries, cake—whatever you want, there is no shortage of goodies for you to choose from.

To top things off: everything is freshly prepared with produce received from regional farmers and factories that you can trust. Schwabengarten is the family and pet friendly beer garden in the Stuttgart region, and it's definitely worth the short drive.

We stopped by last summer, gave the pups some fresh water (and a little, tiny bit of my orange popsicle), and had a lovely meal in the sun before heading back home. It was such a fun, relaxing atmosphere; if we'd had the time, we would have stayed longer—and I'm already looking forward to our next trip.

You can also host your event at the Schwabengarten! There's plenty of space to have a great party.

Stuttgart USO´s 25th Annual Golf TournamentThis past July the USO Stuttgart held its 25th annual Golf Tournament at Golf Club Hammetweil (4 Stars) in Neckartenzlingen. This tournament is not only meant to provide a little bit of recreation and entertainment for service members and their families—it helps to strengthen the bond between the German and American communities. Germans are encouraged to come out and play alongside their American friends. A lot of people came together to make the tournament work; American and German Volunteers, the USO, German companies, and even United Airlines.
